Posted on 2/13/2019 1:54:01 PM

Join the IUP Career and Professional Development Center on Sunday, February 17, 2019, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at JCPenney’s in the Indiana Mall, where the doors will be open to IUP students, faculty, and staff only. 

Members of the IUP community will have the chance to shop for professional attire at a 40 percent discount, which will include all business and business casual clothing, shoes, and accessories. 

Kelsey Thompson, assistant director of the CPDC, helps to coordinate the event. “We want all IUP students to have the chance to begin to build their professional wardrobe,” Thompson said. 

IUP faculty, staff and store personnel will be available to help students select the perfect attire for the IUP Spring Career Fair on Wednesday, February 27, the Western PA Collegiate Job & Internship Fair on March 13, and the Pittsburgh Education Recruitment Consortium on Wednesday, March 27.

"The team at JCPenney’s has been fantastic to work with," Thompson said, "and we are looking forward to another great event this Sunday.”

A shuttle bus will be running outside of Pratt Hall to JCPenney’s every 15–20 minutes for students needing transportation. 

Although pre-registration is not required to attend, students are encouraged to let the CPDC know they plan on attending the event by filling out the Student Registration form (please indicate “Suit-Up” in the Event You Plan to Attend space).
