CHICAGO -- Finding a job can be tough for anyone, especially that first one out of school.

Worrying about your resume, what to say and how to act can be overwhelming for those inching their way into the business world.

A group of students, many just weeks from graduation from Computer Systems Institute in the Loop, got one final lesson in preparation for landing that job: How to dress for success.

Dressing for the job they want is a lesson not often found in the classroom.

Today, it was rolled out in front of dozens of faculty and students.

Students showed off new looks during the school’s first ever Dress for Success fashion show. The group was treated to a shopping trip to help them get the look that will help them get the job.

Participating stores picked up the tab for the students clothes.

The students’ instructors hope the change picks up their confidence level and translates into bigger and better things ahead for these hard workers.
