What is the Duquesne University Career Closet?
The Duquesne University Career Closet - a collaboration among the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Center for Career Development, Spiritan Campus Ministry, Student Government Association, Women's Guild and Faculty Senate - provides students with appropriate interview attire as they transition into the professional world. The Career Closet gives Duquesne University students FREE access to one professional outfit or accessory that they can wear to job interviews, career fairs and internships.
Why is this effort important?
When entering a job interview or networking event, much of one's first impression is based on appearance. That first impression is crucial. The Career Closet ensures that any Duquesne student is able to "dress to impress" and can feel confident at their next career-related event.
How does it work?
Opened for the 2017-2018 Academic Year, the Career Closet is located in the Spiritan Campus Ministry office in Towers. Any Duquesne University student is invited to schedule an appointment. Students then meet with a campus consultant to discuss their needs and pick-out their professional outfit or accessory that is theirs to keep. Initial donations to launch this effort were made by Duquesne University faculty and staff.
