Career Clothes Closet (CCC)
Open: Tuesdays and Thursdays Only
12:00pm - 2:00pm

 

What is the Career Clothes Closet?

The Career Clothes Closet will aid our students in looking their best in the professional world. As a student, it may

be hard to attain funds to purchase appropriate interviewing attire.  Therefore, the Office of Career Services has implemented a program called the "Career Clothes Closet" that will ensure students a start in their future endeavors. We will provide students with "new or gently used" clothing donated by alumnus and other Baton Rouge professionals". Students are not required to return the clothing; it is for keeps for the benefit of their future

 

In order to participate in this program, students must:

  • Bring a current SU I.D, unofficial transcript and complete an application of request.
  • Bring an updated resume for critiquing by one of the career counselors.
  • Schedule a mock interview with our mentors/professionals/counselors.
  • Attend two information sessions or two events sponsored by the Office of Career Services.

After requirements are met, the student may choose their business attire of choice for the interviewing experience.  For more information on the Career Clothes Closet, call us at (225) 771-2200. All questions concerning the Career Clothes Closet should be directed to Mrs. Tamara Foster-Montgomery or Ms. Kathy Scott.
