A pop-up closet at UL’s Moody Hall assisted students in dressing for success this morning.
The UL Career Closet pop-up shop kicked off the university’s Moody Business week. Gently worn business attire was donated from the community to UL students. The clothing is free of charge for young UL professionals seeking employment.
Graduate Assistant of the College of Business Macy Bennett says the Career Closet event presents an opportunity for students to see what career services has to offer.
“This is really an opportunity for us to, you know, show students what our office is and what we have to offer. They have too much to worry about with the interview itself, so we just want to make it easier for our students”
Moody Hall will celebrate business week by hosting a wide array of events and services for students all week long.
The business school’s internship program was also introduced to prospective students today.
Business majors learned how to participate in the program while earning college credit. Employers and former interns also shared their experiences and perspective on the program.
Director of Marketing and Outreach Heather Develcourt says the goal of the panel is to offer real word advice and mentor ship to future business leaders.
“We hope our students really gain that real world hands on experience that will make them the most marketable when they leave the university. Taking what they’re learning in the classroom and applying it in real life situations with those employers.”
Students will of course be pursuing the holy grail of on-the-job training and paid internships.
