Suit Up Event Measurements

Dress for Success

Whether it's for an interview for a full-time position or internship, a career fair and formal recruitment event, or an evening networking event - it's important to dress the part. Our basic rule is to dress up one step more professionally than what you would wear on the job. Often, this means you will dress business professional (see examples below) for career fairs, interviews, and other interactions with employers. Even if you plan to go into a field that doesn't require a business suit or blazer on the job every day - having a clean, basic suit will come in handy!


JCPenney Suit-Up Event

Free professional attire for UNCW Seahawks

The Career Closet is being developed to provide a FREE way for UNCW students to obtain clothing for job hunting. The clothing that will be provided will range from business casual to business professional attire. All of the clothing will come from donations given by members of the UNCW and Wilmington community. In addition to providing clothing, we will also offer tips and interviewing advice at the UNCW Career Center to help build your professional brand.


Professional Attire on a Budget

The Career Center staff hear from our students that finding affordable and professional attire for an interview causes additional pressure leading up to the big meeting. So, our team ventured to two stores in Wilmington to showcase professional attire at the stores you already love!
