Career Closet

Interview coming up? Internship starting soon? If you’re a student with financial need, we’ll hook you up with the professional attire you need to look and feel sharp. The SuccessWorks Career Closet gives students with financial need free professional and business casual attire for interviews, career fairs and the workplace.

How it Works

Pick Up Free Clothing

L&S students can stop by SuccessWorks to browse and pick new & gently used attire -- up to four items per semester!

Items include suits, jackets, blazers, dress pants, skirts, button-down shirts, blouses, ties, sweaters, and dresses.

Specific clothing needed

Jackets/blazers, dress pants/skirts, button-down shirts, blouses, dresses, sweaters, and accessories (ties, belts, scarves, padfolios) – sorry, no shoes or socks.

Make a donation

We are seeking items that are contemporary (5 years old or less), new or gently used, and dry cleaned or in clean condition when donated (please no stains or holes). Gift cards are accepted in smaller increments ($25-$50) for students.
