UL Lafayette Career Services is partnering with the UL Lafayette Alumni Association and The705 to collect inventory for The Career Closet. We will hold two drop-off events one on Tuesday, July 24, 2018 from 10 AM to 2 PM and another on Thursday, July 26, 2018 from 10 AM to 2 PM both at The Alumni Center Circular Drive located at 600 East. St. Mary Blvd.
The Career Closet provides students with free, gently used professional clothing items for interviews, career fairs, and other professional networking events. The goal of this program is to help relieve the stress of affording professional clothing and allow students to focus on creating positive first impressions on potential employers.
We are seeking the assistance of established professionals within the UL Lafayette and Acadiana communities to donate any gently-used professional clothing items they may have. Items needed include: pant suits, skirt suits, blazers, sports coats, blouses, dress shirts, skirts, slacks, ties, belts, shoes, and hangers. Items of neutral color (black, grey, navy, brown, and white) and within current fashion trends are preferred.
