JCPenney has partnered with the career service center Southern Illinois University Carbondale for a college Suit Up event designed to help students dress for success and jump start their careers.
This private event will take place at the JCPenney in University Mall, 1201 E. Main in Carbondale, after the store closes, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, to accommodate hundreds of students looking for advice on what to wear for job interviews. Faculty, staff and alumni from SIUC, 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, how to tie a tie and more.
JCPenney will offer a special 40 percent discount to all SIUC students with a valid ID. Students will also have a chance to receive a free mini makeover at Sephora Inside JCPenney, and receive a free salon consultation and express bar hair touch up at the JCPenney salon. Additionally, the JCPenney Portrait Studio will offer SIUC students the chance to have their business headshots taken with packages starting as low as $29.99.
