Career Closet

What is the Career Closet?

Our mission is to provide free, professional attire to UW-Green Bay students in need.

Professional attire is essential when participating in an interview or attending a business event, however not every student has access to the resources that would allow them to present themselves professionally. The Career Closet provides current students with professional attire for interviews, networking events, and other occasions where they need to make a positive first impression.

 

What Types of Attire Does the Career Closet Provide? 

New and gently used:

  • Suits
  • Dress Pants
  • Dress Shirts and Blouses
  • Suit Coats, Sport Coats, Blazers
  • Skirts
  • Dresses
  • Neckties
  • Scarves
  • Belts

Note: Availability of items will be based upon donations received by Career Services.
