The Career Closet is a professional clothing drive opportunity sponsored by the Dads and Moms Associations, PFPO, and The Career Center. The career closet is an initiative to help prepare students to be ready to interview or attend career fairs dressed professionally. The goal of the program is to not let wardrobe hinder students from having an outstanding first impression when meeting with employers. The career closet is open Mon-Fri at The Career Center Interview Suite, Room 213 (616 E. Green St. Champaign) for Illini students to pick up FREE attire. Parents and Families have the opportunity to participate in this initiative by bringing gently used professional attire to donate during Mom's and Dad's weekend. Donation boxes will be available in the Illini Union during check in. For more information visit this link.
