ARLINGTON, Texas - UT Arlington student-athletes took part in the Spring 2014 semester's first professional development workshop titled "Dressing for Success."

More than 80 student-athletes from all 14 intercollegiate sports attended the event. The event was made possible thanks to the partnership of Men's Warehouse and UT Arlington Athletics.

"This event was very helpful and gave me more confidence on how to make a great first impression to potential employers," sophomore women's track and field athlete Charity Knight said. "Just knowing that the way I dress for an interview can impact whether or not I get a certain job makes me more cognizant of what I wear and I feel confident now that I have the tools I need based on what I learned."

During the event, student-athletes learned how to tie a tie, were taught the do's and don'ts of what to wear to an interview, and what colors are appropriate for interviews.

This workshop is one of several scheduled workshops this semester to help prepare student-athletes for their transition to life after their playing careers are over. 

UT Arlington is committed to developing student-athletes that not only win during athletic competitions, but are also equipped with resources that will help them excel in their lives.
