Dress for Success

“You only have one chance at a positive first impression. The career development office wants to equip Marlboro students with all the tools necessary: a sharp resume, confident interview skills, ease in networking, and a professional appearance. We would like to create a lending library of professional attire for students to access when going on interviews, or attending networking events and conferences. Many students do not have the resources to furnish a professional wardrobe, and this can be a barrier or impact self-confidence. Our ‘dress for success’ lending library will eliminate the worry of what to wear so that students can focus on presenting their best self. “

—Kate Trzaskos, director of experiential learning and career development

Excerpted from Kate’s application for a Geiger Staff Pop-up Award, for which she was awarded $1,000 to launch her lending library, including student business cards. Learn more about these pop-up awards.
