Career Closet

Mission
Our mission is to provide FIU students with a program that encourages them to engage with the Career & Talent Development office and be able to use our career development tools and clothing in order to have a successful job interview, internship interview, and potentially land a career opportunity.
 
The FIU Clothing Closet will also serve as a vehicle for educating students and the FIU Community about what professional attire is – through marketing, programs, and spreading the word about this service.
