The Career Closet is a space where students/alumni can find professional clothing to help set them apart for an interview, internship, career fair, or any other professional event in their lives.

The only reason I was able to compete in the XMC Case Competition this year was because of the career closet. Being a student and not working during the year, I didn't have enough money to go out and buy a suit to compete. Lucky for me, I was taking a class with Cat at the time and she told me about how I could get a suit for free. With that no longer being an obstacle, I was able to join a team that would go on to win the case competition. The career closet is a huge help for students like me who need formal attire but don't have the resources to go get it themselves. I'm excited to donate back to it when I'm able to!​
