The SUITcessful Professional Attire Closet at the Center for Career & Professional Development is a program developed for current John Jay College undergraduate and graduate students who are interviewing for jobs and internships and are in need of appropriate professional attire. The closet serves as a resource for students who are able to reserve one full business suit for an interview or employer event. Suits are free of charge to borrow, and must be returned dry-cleaned with a receipt attached. A variety of suits and other professional attire pieces are available through the program.
In order to help John Jay College students and maintain the SUITcessful Clothing Closet, we have created the set of policies and guidelines below. We need your support to make sure that all John Jay students can benefit from the program. Students that do not follow the policies and guidelines may be fined or receive other disciplinary actions.
The SUITcessful Clothing Closet program is available to current undergraduate and graduate students at John Jay.
