Blue Jay Career Closet

Blue Jay Career Closet

Elizabethtown College is committed to ensuring that all students have regular access to attire for job interviews, student placements, meet and greets, job shadows, internships, and jobs. The Blue Jay Career Closet has been established by the Center for Community and Civic Engagement to provide our students with free, career-ready attire to wear for those who need it. The Blue Jay Career Closet is sourced from donations from within our community.

The career closet was proposed by the Student Senate class of 2022 and established in the summer of 2022.

About the Program

Our Goals:

  • The closet exists to help eliminate barriers to career opportunities for Elizabethtown College students.
  • The closet provides all students with access to the resources needed to be successful in their career development.
  • The closet strengthens relationships between the CCCE, the Career Development Center, and other academic departments.
  • The closet allows members of the campus community to help one another with their needs.

How it Works:

The Blue Jay Career Closet is accessible to undergraduate and graduate students at Elizabethtown College. Students may take items and return them or keep them for any future needs. Should you require items while the closet is closed, contact Javita Thompson.

Closet Hours:

8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday - Friday

Please consider making a monetary donation to help us keep the closet full of items for students. We are always collecting new and gently used clothing, such as clean suits, pants, shirts, and skirts as well as accessories such as shoes, belts, ties, and bags. These garments should be able to be worn to interviews, job shadowing, internships, and jobs. All donation items can be dropped off outside the Center for Community and Civic Engagement, BSC 247.

Please contact Javita Thompson or the Center for Community and Civic Engagement with any questions.


Contact the Center for Community and Civic Engagement if you would like to volunteer with the Blue Jay Career Closet.
