WAYNE – Service-learning students within the Business and Economics Department at Wayne State College recently staged a virtual fashion show called the ‘Cat Show’.
According to a release from WSC, this will promote a new service-learning project that will launch a Career Clothing Closet. The Wildcat Career Closet will open this spring as a place at Wayne State College where students can access donated business professional clothes for an interview or career fair.
The Cat Show Virtual Fashion Show was uploaded on March 1 to the Wayne State College Department of Business and Economics Facebook and Twitter pages. The posts will also be shared on the Wildcat Career Closet’s Instagram page.
Some of the clothing modeled will come from thrift stores to demonstrate to students that they can look sharp in career clothing that fits any budget.
This event will provide tips on interviewing in a virtual setting while promoting the Career Clothing Closet. This event also is a great way to build bonds between the Wayne State College, students, the Career Clothing Closet and businesses in Wayne. The Cat Show will also be accepting donations of gently used career clothing.
This event will be great for all students and community members to come together and work for a common goal. Students will be modeling with clothes from IKT, Micah’s Closet, Swans Apparel, Thrift Warehouse and Boutique Black Label. Students have many options to find career clothing in and around Wayne and just in time for the Virtual Career Fair being hosted by Career Services on Wednesday, March 24 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
