Nothing to Wear? Visit the Career Closet

We’ve all been there. You’re about to get dressed for something important and you look in your closet and think to yourself, “I have nothing to wear.” As a member of the Globe University-Madison East Career Services team, I can tell you, we’ve hear this a lot from students or new grads about to embark on interviews. We wanted to eliminate that frustration. Thus, the Career Closet was created!

The Career Closet is a closet located on campus in room 214 which acts as an amazing resource for students and alumni in need of some interview clothes. Students or alumni can check out a piece or pieces of clothing just like they would in the library to wear for an upcoming interview or networking event. How does it work? There are four easy steps:

  1. Students or Alumni check out a key from the front desk.
  2. Head to the closet and pick out the items they’d like to check out.
  3. Lock the closet, return the key, and check out the clothing at the front desk.
  4. When you are finished with the items, simply launder the items and return them to the front desk.

Not only does the Career Closet offer dress pants, suit jackets, ties, blouses, cardigans, skirts, and shoes, but it also has professional padfolios for students to check out and use for job interviews.

“Our goal is to support our students and grads through every step of the job search process,” said Director of Career Services Elizabeth Disch. “This clothing resource is one more way we are helping our students become successful professionals, particularly as they take on that all-so-important job interview.”
