R'Professional Career Closet

R’Professional Career Closet: Slider

R’Professional Career Closet

The Career Center and ASUCR have joined forces to become partners on this important mission to professionally prepare our students for the workforce. The R’Professional Career Closet provides UCR students with tools, preparation and professional attire for their interviews, career fairs, and/or networking events. We want to prepare UCR students to make a great and competitive first impression by providing students with professional attire. 

Winter 2020 Hours: Monday - Thursday: 10am to 12pm

The R'Professional Career Closet will be closed during the summer and school breaks. Contact the Career Center at careerrecruiting@ucr.edu or 951-827-3631 to make a donation when the R'Professional Career Closet is closed.

How it Works

R'Professional Career Closet is available to current UCR students during the academic year.
Do you have a job interview, networking event or career fair to attend, but don’t have the appropriate business attire? R’Professional Career Closet can help. Beginning in Spring 2018, stop by the Bear’s Den (HUB 105) and browse our clothing. Items are free and you do not need to prove financial need.  Open to all UCR students.

For more information, contact the Career Center at careerrecruiting@ucr.edu or 951-827-3631.

  • Choose your business attire

    Choose your business attire:

    Select clothing on your own or with the assistance of one of our R'Professional Clothing Closet interns to find an outfit or combination of clothing pieces that will work for you. You can choose up to 3 items OR one outfit (example: blazer, pants, and dress shirt) per quarter. The items you take will be yours to keep at no charge to you.

  • Make Donations


    If you have professional clothing you can spare, please donate it to R’Professional Career Closet. Your clothing will go to a student who is interviewing for a job but doesn’t have appropriate business attire.
    To donate your gently used professional attire, you may drop off items during store hours at the Bear’s Den (HUB 105): Monday - Thursday 10a-1p. To make a donation outside of these hours, during summer or school breaks, or for more information, contact the Career Center at careerrecruiting@ucr.edu or 951-827-3631.
