Looking for that perfect outfit for the Career Fair? Or maybe you’ve got an interview coming up and you need to dress to impress.

The Career Center’s Career Closet has you covered! Stocked with a variety of gently worn business professional clothing, students can choose and keep up to four items from the Career Closet each academic year for free.

Schedule an appointment at the Lincoln Park Career Center by calling 773-325-7431 and let the shopping begin! Walk-ins are also welcome.

Donate to the Career Closet

Will you help us build our wardrobe by donating clothing today? Career Center staff will accept and sort clothing donations on an ongoing basis. Any items that are not used by the Career Closet will be donated to the Vincentian Community Service Office or the Salvation Army.

Building our clothing supply and creating a welcoming atmosphere for students is important to the success of the Career Closet program we appreciate any participation and support!
