Nailing that first impression in an interview has never been more important. To give all students a fair chance, a new event has been launched at the University of Hull and the team is asking for donations ahead of the big day.
On Friday 12 May 2023, the Student Futures Team at the University of Hull are hosting a preloved ‘Working Wardrobe’ event to help all students prepare for their interviews.
To make the event a success, donations of any interview or office wear that is currently going unloved or unworn are welcome. Providing the perfect opportunity for a spring clean, these items of clothing will be given a new home to students embarking on interviews at the start of their careers.
The event has been created with the University’s overall strategy of sustainability in mind while aiming to help students who are facing the cost of living crisis.
Speaking about the event, Joe Hancock, Acting Head of Service, said: “The Working Wardrobe is a fantastic initiative from the Student Futures team, which amplifies important messages about sustainability in fashion and helps out students during the current cost of living crisis.
“We have been delighted with the response so far with donations coming in from staff and external partners.
“The scheme is a great example that our institutional values in areas such as sustainability and social justice feed directly into the way we work and develop our services.
“I am really looking forward to the event, which should mean getting kitted out for an interview doesn’t need to cost the earth!”
