Career Closet


The Career Closet is a resource started in October 2013 that assists students in creating a professional wardrobe for interviews and jobs. Students are able to shop in the Career Closet anytime Career & Professional Development is open. Items you may find in the closet include: suits, pants, skirts, dresses, ties, belts and tops. UWO Alumni are also able to shop up to a year after graduation!  

Students are allowed to choose up to 4 items from the closet per semester to keep for free.

Inventory is always changing; be sure to check back frequently to find new items.
