Bishop Ward High School

AOF Dress for Success Field Trip

The Sophomore members of the Academy of Finance visited JCPenney at the Legends for a presentation on dressing for success.
The management staff at JCPenney gave a presentation on what is appropriate clothing to wear when business formal for an interview and business casual once the job is secure.
Sample outfits were shown to students and information presented through questions being posed and answers explored. After the presentation, students were able to use the knowledge provided and shop for clothing pieces to start building their own business wardrobe.
Students were given $50 gift cards to shop there at the store. Chaperones were able to guide their decisions. Many of the gift cards were donated by graduates of Bishop Ward who generously gave to our current students citing the importance of students knowing proper dress so they will impress in interviews and on the job.
