Purple Closet

Job interviews are all about presentation - how you present yourself, your skills, your talents. You've got to bring your A-game. MCC's Purple Closet is here to help you put your best foot forward and nail that first impression by making sure you have the appropriate professional attire for your interview or other professional business meetings.

We can help you access professional clothing through partnerships with local profit and non-profit clothing resale establishments. All you need to do is fill out a voucher, then it's up to you to shop for exactly what you need from our partner stores.

Vouchers available from:

  • Administrative Office Management Department Chair A122
  • Business Department Chair A124
  • Career and Technical Education Office E212
  • Career Services A254
  • Student Success Center A247
