Career Closet

Dress professionally with the help of Student Life's Career Closet 

The Office of Student Life is organizing a Career Closet event for all Ohio State students who are looking to obtain the right attire to dress professionally. Students who may not have the budget to purchase an outfit for an upcoming interview or career job fair are especially encouraged to attend this event.  

The Career Closet event will take place in the Great Hall Meeting Room on the first floor of the Ohio Union on Wednesday, March 1st from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m. We will have professional clothing, shoes and accessories; everything students need to make a lasting impression, for free! Dressing rooms and mirrors will be available for your convenience. For more information, email Natasha Pugh or Lane Washington  



Please consider donating your gently used professional clothing, shoes and accessories to this event. All donated clothing will be used to provide a closet where students can “shop” for free professional attire needed for career fairs, interviews, internships and career employment.  We are in need of the following items: men's and women's suits, skirts, dresses, men's and women's slacks/dress pants, blouses, men's dress shirts, unopened/unused hosiery and socks, dress shoes (pumps, flats, appropriate boots, men's leather lace-ups), ties, purses, briefcases, jewelry and scarves.
