Q: Where is the Trojan Career Closet?

Map for Website

The Trojan Career Closet is located in rooms 102 and 103 of the Education Building, next to the Career Center. Staff is located in Administration North on the 2nd floor (next door to the Career Closet).

History

The average student attends several interviews throughout his or her college and professional career. Many students find it difficult to afford attire for interviews, while others are misinformed about what is appropriate attire. In the spring of 2016, the Division of Student Affairs, College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences, and College of Education and Health Professions worked together to create the Trojan Career Closet, whose mission is to encourage students to be career-focused and to dress for professional success. During the 2016 spring semester, one-hundred and fifty students earned the opportunity to “shop” through attending a career-focused workshop. Community, Careers, and Extended Education assumed responsibility for the Trojan Career Closet in spring 2017.
