Career Services and DSUSA are excited to invite all students to our first ever JCP SUIT UP Event Wednesday, October 2!

This is an amazing opportunity for students to purchase career attire at a great discount (up to 60% off!). Shop everything you need to finish your look for that next career fair, interview or new job. In addition to career attire, check out men’s khaki’s, men’s basics, fashion jewelry, handbags, luggage, and more. In addition to great shopping there will be mini makeovers and samples by Sephora, demos at the hair salon, how to correctly fit a suit, and many other great fashion tips!

“Students need to prepare now for their jump from college student to career professional,” said Ali Threet, Executive Director of Career and Student Success. “Professional attire will help them interview better, feel confident, and make a great first impression on employers.”

Students will need to check in with their D# or Student ID to receive a coupon. Discounts will be applied to career clothing including shoes and handbags. The event will take place Wednesday, October 2 from 6 – 9 pm at the JCPenney Store in the Red Cliffs Mall, 1750 East Red Cliffs Drive, St George. 

“We are excited to bring this event to our DSU Trailblazers,” said Maire McDonough, VP of Student Life.  “We think this partnership will benefit our students and we are grateful for the opportunity we have to work with JCPenney.”

Prepare now for interviews, class presentations, internships, and our career and internship fairs. The Fall Career and Internship Fair will be held November 5 from 10-2 p.m. and the Spring Career and Internship Fair will be held January 30 from 10-2 p.m. Both will be in the Kenneth N. Gardner Student Center.
