The Kent State Career Closet started as an idea of a few female staff members looking for ways to give back and help students. In the intervening years, it has grown from that casual conversation to a multi-site resource, with the potential for events, pop-up shops, and more. 

Where can you find the Career Closet?

Career Closet locations are in the KSU Women's Center and the Career Exploration & Development office.

Both sites are open M-F 9am-4pm to shop.
