The Career Center is currently collaborating with both Parkland Community College and JC Penney to put on a fantastic event called Suit-Up for students on March 31, 2019 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the JC Penney located in the Market Place Shopping Center in Champaign, IL. This event will allow students and their families who attend to purchase select business professional attire and receive an additional 40% off ticket prices (including already marked down items). This discount applies to professional dress apparel, shoes, and some accessories and undergarments. Last Spring The Career Center saw over 450 unique students visiting our Career Closet in search of interview and new job attire. After noticing this need, we felt confident this event would serve our student population and their families well.
We will have transportation available for students from campus to JC Penney the evening of the event. More details regarding transportation will be coming soon. Please check Handshake for updates, and encourage students to do the same. All students need to do to participate is bring their student ID to check-in as well as any family members they may like to join them - everyone will received the additional 40% off select professional attire.
