Cougar Career Closet

Do you have an upcoming job interview but nothing to wear? Never fear, the Cougar Career Closet is here! Bring your student ID and come “shop” the closet for free!

Members of the CSUSM campus and the surrounding community are donating gently used business attire to benefit hard working students like you. These items have been cleaned, organized, and made ready to help you dress for success.

Make an appointment in Handshake for the Cougar Career Closet which is located at the Career Center (Craven 1400).  We have a wide range of styles and sizes for everyone. You may take home up to 4 items per academic year.

You have prepared for this opportunity, why not let us help you look your best! Come see what is in our closet!
