Happy August! As we round out these last few weeks of summer – and if you are in the Philadelphia area they are a very warm last few weeks of summer – we want to remind you about Penn’s partnership with The Wardrobe, a Philly nonprofit thrift boutique that sells new or gently used professional clothing. Through our established partnership generously funded by University Life, Penn students can shop for free to ensure they have the wardrobe they need to feel confident as they enter into this next school year. We all know that first impressions are lasting impressions, so whether you are preparing for career fairs, interviews, networking events, a fall internship (or anything else, really!) we want to make sure you are dressed for success.
The process is easy. Students have the option to shop in person or online. All you have to do is sign up for an appointment! If you are a Penn student interested in this service, email Anne Dickinson in Career Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
