(May 3, 2012) -- To help students secure an internship or full-time job, the UTSA University Career Center now loans professional interview attire on a short-term basis through its new program Career Closet.
"Every week we get a panicked student who needs something to wear for an interview. We saw the need for a Career Closet early on, and it has been a great success in the short time it has been available," said Audrey Magnuson, director of the University Career Center. "Whether it is helping pick a major or preparing for a job interview, we try to help our students from start to finish."
The Career Closet started off as a coat rack full of ties and a few sport coats, but thanks to a $2,000 grant from the UTSA Family Association, the University Career Center purchased new business suits for men and women in a range of standard sizes to add to the closet. It also has accepted donations of new interview suits to stock the closet and loan to students. Students only need to cover the cost of dry cleaning.
The UTSA University Career Center assists students and alumni in identifying and developing the skills necessary to pursue lifelong career goals. Additionally, the center offers classroom presentations on career and professional development topics. The center also develops internship and cooperative education work experiences and hosts a variety of career fairs.
The University Career Center partners with employers throughout the United States to locate and post jobs for students and alumni. The center database allows employers to post vacancies, search resumes and schedule interviews.
