Career Closet opens to help prepare students for life after graduation


Lord Fairfax Community College officials are making sure their students are prepared for life after graduation.

Now in its second year, the career closet has opened to allow students to shop for professional clothes at no cost. Organizers say they realize that business attire can be a little too pricey for some college students who need to look the part as they head to job interviews. Students say with graduation less than 15 days away the closet opened at the perfect time. 

“Students can get the professional wear they need, next week focus on finals and then head to graduation and its a really exciting time for students. Students are starting to look at job opportunities look at internship opportunities for the summer, so they planned it perfectly so students have what they need.” Sarah Downs says. 

The clothes, shoes and accessories were all donated by LFCC faculty and staff.
