UVA Suit Up!

Career Administrator


Make sure you look the part at your next interview or networking opportunity! JCPenney is partnering with the UVA Career Center to provide professional clothing at a hugely discounted price (40% off, in addition to existing sales!). During this private event, students can purchase suits, dresses, sport coats, pants, skirts, blouses, ties and shoes to build a career wardrobe.

UVA Career Center staff, along with members of the JCPenney team, will be on-hand to offer insights into the latest career fashion trends, how a suit should fit, what size to buy, and how to tie a tie. Sephora will also have beauty consultants available to help guide you in choosing appropriate makeup for a professional setting, as well as provide mini-makeovers.  There will be giveaways from JCPenney, Wegman’s, the UVA Bookstore and Sephora! Free food will be provided as well.

This unique event will take place on Sunday, February 11th from 6:30 to 9:00PM at JCPenney (1639 Rio Rd E). Free transportation to and from the store will be provided. Please see details below! If you are driving, please park on the backside of JCPenney (coming off of 29), as we will be using the employee entrance and that will be the only on unlocked.
