NYIT Students Prepare for Success at “Attire for Hire” Fashion Show

New York, N.Y (April 8, 2010) – The Indian Graduate Students Association at New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) presented “Attire for Hire,” a fashion show featuring  proper business fashions and etiquette on March 30, 2010 at NYIT’s Manhattan campus.

NYIT students representing cultures from around the world participated in the fashion show, aimed at helping students prepare an appropriate wardrobe for job interviews and professional events. As a comparison, students also modeled styles inappropriate for the workplace.

Nancy Doyle Gorczynski, founder and director of The Etiquette and Protocol School in New Jersey, attended the event and introduced etiquette secrets, table manners for business meals, and business attire tips to students. 

“It is very important that students are introduced to different aspects of the workplace early on,” said Shail Choksi, president of NYIT’s Indian Graduate Students Association.  “This teaches them how to act professionally and be prepared for various situations, whether it is for interviews, business meals, or even formal events.”

The Indian Graduate Students Association, a non-profit organization for NYIT students from India, organizes cultural programs and creates a social atmosphere for students. The association’s purpose is to help new students with educational and social issues and continue their connection with Indian culture and heritage. 

“Attire for Hire” was sponsored by NYIT’s Office of Career Services and Great American Mentoring (GAM), an NYIT club that connects students with alumni and professionals to learn business sense and social grace.
