SMU Career Closet



Welcome to the Career Closet, where style meets success!

Hosted by the Hegi Family Career Development Center, Cox Career Management Center, and Office of Social Change and Intercultural Engagement, the Career Closet Pop Up Shop provides students with FREE business professional attire.  Please join us as we prepare to host the Career Closet where all students are welcome to browse our collection of new and gently used business professional attire needed for their journey to success.


By providing business professional and casual clothing, students can find the perfect fit at the Career Closet event on August 28, 2024. Our goal is to help students dress to make lasting impressions during interviews, networking events, important meetings, and in the workplace. 

By donating sharp suits and all the corporate standard accessories, you will be helping SMU students prepare to step into the professional world in style. Imagine the transformative power your contribution holds as students step into their futures with style and confidence. With your generous contribution, we can expand our product collection to be able to provide even more students with the essential business professional attire. Whether it’s one of accepted clothing items or monetary donation, every contribution counts.

Every student deserves a chance to shine in their professional journey, and you can be part of that transformation. Make a difference by donating to the Career Closet today and give students the resources they need to succeed.

  • Professional jackets & blazers
