Clothing Closet

WSU students who need free professional clothing for career fairs, interviews and professional development opportunities should attend the Career Closet Events held in the fall and spring semesters. Items available may include suits, dress pants, professional shirts or blouses, and professional skirts.

Head Shocks

Throughout the semester, we host professional photo events called Head Shocks, where WSU students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend. These pictures can be emailed right away and be used for anything you would like! For example, a LinkedIn photo, on Handshake or any other professional website of your choice. You may also schedule an appointment with the Shocker Career Accelerator to take your photo at a time that works better for you!
