KENT, OHIO - Kent State University employees hoping to help students look more professional for potential job meetings have created a boutique to collect dressier attire and offer it to them for free.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2niG5fL ) the KSU Career Closet is housed in the lower level of the school's new Women's Center and is open to anyone in possession of a Kent State student ID card.
Four women on staff at Kent State came up with the idea for the clothes closet following a recent career fair on campus. The shop will hold a major donation drive March 20-24 to replenish its stock of professional wear.
In addition to clothing, the boutique also offers tip sheets with advice for students on how to best present themselves to potential employers
