Florida Atlantic University has launched the OWL Professional Clothes Closet, a new initiative aimed at helping FAU students dress appropriately for job interviews and networking events.

The closet provides students access to free professional and business casual attire, including suits, blazers, skirts, blouses, shirts and ties. The attire is available to all undergraduate and graduate students who use a service – such as resume building or meeting with a career adviser to build an individualized career plan – offered in FAU’s Career Center.

“The FAU Career Center’s mission is to connect students with meaningful employment, internship and graduate school opportunities,” said Brian Montalvo, interim executive director of FAU’s Career Center.  “Dressing in professional attire gives our students the competitive edge and allows them to make a great first impression.”

The Career Center is actively seeking donations for its OWL Professional Clothes Closet, with drop-off locations at FAU’s Boca Raton, Jupiter and Davie campuses. To donate or for more information, contact FAU’s Career Center at 561-297-3533 or career@fau.edu
