The Jaguar Career Closet is now open as of November 15th. It is available to the entire GSU student body. The Career Closet was created to help provide professional attire to the students here at GSU. Donations from students, staff, and foundations helped make this possible. Student Life and peer mentors  brought the idea to life. The closet is available on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11am-3pm.

As mentioned in Volume 20 Issue 13, the career closet was established to help students who cannot afford professional attire or are homeless. However, students who need professional attire for more than just job interviews can utilize this service. For example, upcoming presentations and important meetings may qualify for a visit to the Jaguar Career Closet.

In addition to having access to this formal wear, students are paired with someone to help pick an outfit. Student Activities Director Konya Sledge and Male Success Initiative Coordinate Sean Smith gave some helpful tips on how to dress elegantly and appropriately for formal situations. “Your shoes should always match your belt,” Smith advises. Students should “wear light cologne, keep your shirt tucked in, and no flashy jewelry”. Sledge mentioned how dangly jewelry and big bracelets are a no-go for the ladies. Scarves, however, get a free pass.

To sign up, students should go visit Student Life or Civic Engagement Center to fill out a form. From there, you can meet with someone who will help you put together a portfolio, resume, or anything you need to give you a boost for your big day.  The student will even be assisted by someone to help them put together the perfect look. Best of all, the outfits are free. Students can keep anything they pick out. Have any professional attire you don’t wear anymore? Donate to the GSU Career Closet today! So what are you waiting for? Go get your new look right now.
