What is the Dress code when attending a Job Fair

The clothes that you are going to wear during the job fair can either make you stand out or become unnoticeable in the eyes of numerous employers you will be facing at the event. In the venue, you will be competing with other job applicants in terms of your work experience, resume details, and the way you carry yourself with the way you dress.

Your objective when attending the job fair is to leave a lasting impression on your prospective employers that will compel them to hire you. One way to do so is to dress appropriately for the job fair.

Here is the suggested attire for males attending the job fair

  • Have a clean and neat haircut
  • Shave
  • Wear a shirt with a collar
  • Use minimal accessories, for example, a wristwatch, and avoid bling bling
  • Wear properly pressed smart casual pants
  • Wear closed-toe shoes, and avoid rubber shoes such as running shoes or basketball shoes

  • Wear a collard blouse or shirt with a collar
  • Use minimal accessories and apply minimal makeup
  • Wear a below-the-knee skirt or dress pants
  • Wear closed-toe shoes, heeled shoes are fine but make sure you are comfortable with it

Benefits of attending the POEA (DMW) Job Fairs

Attending job fairs from POEA (DMW) events has more advantages than disadvantages for both employers and job applicants. Companies can screen lots of applicants in one day, they can do the hiring on the spot if they deem the applicant to be deserving of the job offer. The same works with applicants, they can be hired on the same day if they are impressed enough with the hiring personnel.

Usually, job fairs are attended by numerous companies and licensed manpower agencies whose intention is to acquire talent. They also spend time and money setting up attractive stalls in the venue to get attention from participants. This means that applicants can submit their resumes in just one day and meet with more than 20 hiring personnel. On a regular day, it is impossible to visit that number of HR personnel from different companies because of different constraints. This saves a lot of time and transportation costs on the side of applicants.

There is a saying that goes like this, “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” During the job fair, applicants will meet HR managers, employers, and fellow job seekers who are probably employed in their present company. If the applicants manage to leave a good impression on these people, he/she can get recommendations from them once there are vacancies in their respective companies.

Free workshops are also available during the job fair. Applicants can take advantage of it to learn and gather the information that they can utilize to find the jobs that they dreamed of in the future.

If DMW/POEA organizes job fairs for overseas employment ( abroad ), DOLE or the Department of Labor and Employment, on the other hand, organizes Job fairs for local work. I suggest you visit the official website of DOLE (www.ble.dole.gov.ph) for their updated job fair schedules and venues nationwide.
