The JCPenney store at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park is again sponsoring the Suit-Up event on Sept. 8. The store is offering up to 60% off career wear for students and their families, alumni, and faculty/staff volunteers who sign up to help with the event. Special discounts for the store’s portrait studio and hair salon will also be available.
This is a great opportunity for students to get the clothing they need to look professional for internships, job interviews and that first post-graduation step on the career ladder.
Faculty and staff can help by promoting this opportunity to students. Plus, they can participate by volunteering to help with signing in students at the event; volunteers will also be able to take advantage of the up to 60% discount on career wear.
The JCPenney College Suit Up event for UMKC is from 6 to 9 p.m. Sunday Sept. 8 at Oak Park Mall, 95th and Quivira in Overland Park. To volunteer, contact Molly Wilensky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
