JCPenney Suit-Up Events: March 7 - Virtual and Physical Options

The Career Development Center (CDC) will sponsor the annual JCPenney Suit-Up Event on Sunday, March 7, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Walden Galleria. All shoppers must wear face masks and practice appropriate social distancing. Additionally, a virtual event will run from Friday, March 5, through Sunday, March 7, from midnight to midnight. Students must register in advance for the virtual event to get the online coupon code.

Both in person and online, JCPenney will offer up to 60 percent off men’s and women’s career dress apparel, shoes, and accessories, with a 30 percent Suit-Up coupon. This event will help students prepare for their job and internship interviews and the Virtual Job and Internship Fair, as well as teach them about professional workplace attire (even in our current virtual world).

We are encouraging advance registration to ensure that enough support is available for participants.

This year’s event is co-sponsored by the CDC, the Fashion and Textile Technology Department, the Professional Development Schools Consortium (PDS), the Student Athletic Advisory Committee, and Student Leadership and Engagement

If you would like a CDC staff member to briefly speak to your students about professional dress or specifically about this event, please e-mail the CDC  or complete our workshop request form.
