URI’s newly founded Career Closet is an office in Roosevelt Hall designed for advice and guidance on what to wear to interviews, networking events, and other professional occasions. As part of the Center for Career & Experiential Education, we want to make sure our students are prepared for upcoming interviews, internships, and jobs, and we are here to help you with fashion and fit from head to toe. Our goal is to work with students to advance their appearance and confidence while finding professional attire on a budget.

Meet the Career Closet Interns from the Textiles Department:

Hi my name is Sarah, and I’m a senior TMD- Fashion Merchandising major with a Business Minor, and joined the Career Closet team last fall as a part of its grand opening. Previously working at the J.Jill home office, I have experience working in a corporate office, and dressing in a business professional environment. Being involved in the Career Closet has helped me teach students the do’s and don’ts of appropriate attire in the professional world, as well expanding my own knowledge of different expectations of dress of other occupational fields.

Hi my name is Olivia, I am a Senior Textile, Fashion Merchandising and Design major here at URI. I began interning for the Career Closet this fall, and have been working with the other interns, as well as the CCEE staff, towards its opening. I have previously worked with Polychrome and American Eagle Outfitters. Interning for the Career Closet has taught me many valuable lessons which I plan to take with me as I pursue a career in fashion merchandising.

I’m Stephanie, I am a senior TMD major with a minor in Business and Communications. I joined the Career Closet team this fall, working to help inform students about the expectations of professionalism in dress. I was an intern at Fashion companies the past two summers. Working at a small mens clothing company; Robert Graham, and the shoe company; Steve Madden. They were both great experiences for me where I learned a lot about the Fashion industry. I am excited to assist others with my expertise and expect to increase my own understanding as well.
