Career Closet

Career Closet Logo

Put your best self forward at a career fair or in an interview by shopping the CLDC’s library of professional clothing—the Career Closet. The Closet provides students with business professional and business casual clothes for interviews, career fairs, formal events or any career-related function, both on and off campus.

How can I access the Career Closet?

The Career Closet is currently closed until the CLDC resumes in-person operations.

The Career Closet is run by the Career and Leadership Development Center, in Baker University Center 507.

The Closet is open to all students. Students can take up to one outfit that they need per semester and are not required to return anything. We encourage students to keep the clothes they find for future career needs or professional development opportunities.

To utilize the Career Closet, stop by for a drop-in appointment any time between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

How can I donate clothes to the Career Closet?

All donations of lightly used, professional clothes should be delivered to the Career and Leadership Development Center in Baker University Center 507.

What clothing donations does the Career Closet need the most?

Due to the rapid turnover in inventory and the consistent need for new sizes and styles, clothing donations are always being accepted!
