Career Closet/Dress for Success Fundraiser

By having the appropriate attire and professional accessories, students will make a lasting impression at networking events and job interviews so that they shine and stand out from the competition. Help us support our Vikings as they achieve their professional aspirations!

 

Career Services is gearing up to host a series of Dress for Success initiatives to support our Vikings. During the Spring 2023 semester, we will host our annual 2-day Career Closet event where all students are encouraged to choose professional dress items from the Career Closet at no cost to them. In addition, we will award selected applicants a professional attire stipend to purchase career-ready attire. The goal is to help our students prepare for the Job & Internship Fair and interview process. 

 

We have set a fundraising goal of $750 to not only kickstart these initiatives, but also to build a foundation for future career readiness and dress for success programming.

 

Every dollar counts. Donate to help a Viking enter the professional world!

Video Script:

“Hi there, I’m Chris, and I’m Abbie, and we’re from Salem State Career Services! We’re here to tell you about our annual Career Closet that’s coming up in Spring 2023. This 2-day event is a one-stop shop where students can choose from new and gently used professional attire, which will help them make a great first impression at our Spring Job & Internship Fair, in job interviews, and more. The Career Closet will be free to all students to ease the financial burden of finding appropriate professional dress.”  

“Oh, and there’s one more thing! This year, we are also awarding selected applicants a professional attire stipend to purchase new career-ready attire. The money we raise through our crowdfunding page will go directly to kickstarting our Career Closet and providing these stipends. But we need YOUR HELP to make this happen!” 

“Consider donating to our crowdfunding page today. Help our students go from dressing like this, to this!”
