Career Closet

What is the Duquesne University Career Closet?

The Duquesne University Career Closet provides students with appropriate interview and work attire as they transition into the professional world. The Career Closet gives Duquesne University students access to a 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?

The newly refurbished Career Closet has a new location on the first floor of the Duquesne Union. Any Duquesne University student is invited to schedule an appointment. Students then meet with a campus consultant in Career Development to discuss their needs and pick-out their professional outfit or accessory. There are items in the closet that are for borrowing for one-time occasions and items that a student can keep.

Schedule an Appointment

To schedule an appointment to meet with a campus consultant, email careercloset@duq.edu.
