Glen Oaks opens Career Closet

Glen Oaks students wanting to dress their professional best now have an option through the college’s Career Closet.

Operated by Glen Oaks employees, the Career Closet provides currently enrolled students with free professional attire appropriate for career fairs, interviews, classroom presentations and the workplace.

The project was funded in part through a $500 grant from Meemic Foundation, coordinated through the Gleaton Swanwick Agency in Centreville.

College officials said Career Closet depends on donations of gently-used business attire from members of the community.

Hardwick blazers in both men’s and women’s styles, were provided through a donation from Mike Ownbey, president and CEO of Morgan Olson, and his wife, Paulette.
