Rutgers. It was hard enough to get into a party on a Friday night back in my day. Now it’s apparently a struggle just to get through the door of a career fair.
“Several Rutgers Business School students were barred from entering their annual career fair last Friday at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick for dress code violations.
Rutgers Business School sophomore Tyler Farnsworth said he was unable to enter because he wore suede shoes, and that a majority of students prevented from entering were wearing blue shirts, blue suits or brown shoes. He estimates that about 40 students were turned away from the fair for dress code violations.
This year’s career fair dress code flyer tells male students to wear “clean, polished dark dress shoes,” but no sneakers or boots. Men should also wear black or dark gray professional suits. This flyer is linked on the school’s career fair web page.
Last year’s flyer also prohibits sneakers, but tells students only to wear “dress or hard bottom shoes,” as well as a “dark, conservative suit.”.
Yep, that’s the exact reason i chose to forgo the business school. Boxers or bust and that has continued throughout my blogging career until even today. But this is such classic Rutgers it hurts. Rutgers always trying to put a shine on the turd they are and have been forever. Joining the Big Ten to look legit then being a punching bag losing games 78-0. Waiting until 2016 to be a coke campus instead of Pepsi. Denying their own students entry to further their careers based on how they dress. Don’t they understand their students are broke because they have to pay for books, rent and… like…tuition? Or parking tickets and booze but same difference. Nobody’s hopping on NJ Transit and going to Barney’s in the dead of winter so they can impress someone at a career fair. That comes after you land the ballin job. Plus half the time the people representing these companies at the career fairs are former Rutgers students themselves, just a couple years removed from walking the streets at night in booty shorts and jerseys or racially insensitive mixer costumes. Plus, it’s 2017. Everyone should have taken note of those nerds out in Silicon Valley who are changing the world in ripped jeans and a t-shirt. Here’s to needing 11:1 ratio and a black or dark grey professional suits.
