Here at the UWS Career & Internship Center, we want our students to feel confident and prepared as they are attend career fairs and interviews or start new jobs and internships. For some, the workplace attire component of feeling confident and prepared can prove prohibitively expensive, and we want to help.

On April 3rd, we’re hosting our second ‘Dress for Success’ pop-up event where students can come ‘shop’ for clothes to support their job and internship search process, free of charge and with the support of Career & Internship Center staff members. At our inaugural event in October 2019, we had over 300 students visit and take home professional clothing!
