We want to CU Clothes the Deal!

By Kelsey McWilliams, Marketing Intern at CU-Boulder Career Services

Are you looking to add professional business attire to your wardrobe? Do you need a new suit to wear to an upcoming job interview? Even if you’re just looking to spruce up your image then you should attend our upcoming event “Clothes the Deal!”

Career Services is partnering with Nordstrom Rack to present head to toe fashion tips and store discounts on professional attire at Nordstrom Rack. CU-Boulder students will receive great deals on professional attire to help prepare them for interviews. Nordstrom Rack will highlight outfits for $100 and less. Additionally, local consignment shops will also be participating by giving additional discounts on professional attire.

Don’t miss this “Clothes the Deal!” event on Tuesday, September 18 from 3-5pm at Nordstrom Rack at the 29th Street Mall.

Following the event there will also be a Boulder 2140 and CU Career Services Networking Event at Cantina Laredo from 5:30-7:30pm. This will give students and recent alumni a chance to connect with young, local, Boulder professionals and employers. Don’t miss this Boulder 2140 event if you’re seeking to jump-start your job search before Career Services’ Fall Career and Internship Fair on Tuesday, September 25 in the UMC Ballroom 2nd floor from 9am-3pm.

Proceeds from Boulder 2140’s follow-up networking event will go to a scholarship fund for financially deserving/high achieving students to help them purchase professional interviewing attire! Appetizers will be provided courtesy of 29th Street Mall and happy hour prices will be extended until 7:30pm. To learn more about Boulder 2140 visit their website.
