Like me, many students don’t take the time to reflect on what happens after making...

It’s a new year … with a new dress code

Interview? Presentation? Virtual rotation? Can I wear pajamas? The remote lifestyle has changed many people’s wardrobes. I no longer have to wake up early to iron out wrinkles, and it is acceptable to wear the same outfit twice. But my professional dress hasn’t changed at all.
