The Office of Career Services is excited to announce the new “Suit Up for Success” event this fall and need your help to ensure it is a success!  The Suit Up event is a special night of shopping at JCPenney exclusively for UAB students on Sunday, January 27th from 6:00-9:00 PM at the Riverchase Galleria.  The goal is to help students become “professional ready” with their wardrobe – which can mean for a job interview, a presentation to a class, a networking event, and many more occasions.  So, we want to target all students! 

The store will be closed to the public, but parents may accompany their student to assist with purchases if desired.  The event will include:

  •  A 40% discount on top of whatever the lowest sales price is at the time on all career related items (suits, shirts, ties, dress shoes, pants, blazers, dresses, intimates, etc.)
  • Giveaways, prizes and refreshments
  • The discount will include at least 50% of the clothing areas – however, students can purchase other items, such as jeans, if desired at the current price
  • Associates will be available to:  measure all male students and supply them with a card of their measurements , demonstrate appropriate interview makeup and hair styles from their beauty and salon areas, show how to tie a tie,  and much more
  • If desired/needed, transportation from the Hill Student Center to the Riverchase Galleria store will be provided by a UAB shuttle
