Career Closet at UW-Stout helps students dress to impress

A new project is helping UW-Stout students dress to impress.

The university’s Fall Career Conference starts Tuesday, but not everyone owns a professional outfit to help ace that interview.

That’s why Helping Hand created the Career Closet.

The Career Closet is free to UW-Stout students and offers a variety of clothing include slacks, dresses, and shoes.

Kayla Lehner has donated items to the closet and volunteers there as well.

“It’s one of the first impressions that somebody has when you’re going into an interview. To talk to somebody is your clothes. It puts out your presence and who you are so to have that [the closet] accessible is good,” said Lehner.

People can keep the clothes or return them for future use.  The room also has a few graduation gowns available.

The closet is open Tuesdays through Thursdays from 2:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
