Dressed for success

CVTC students offered free professional outfits for interviews, career

College student choosing clothes for career

Aly Roth, 18, an Altoona High School graduate and student at Chippewa Valley Technical College, took advantage of CVTC’s Career Closet, recently.

As a first-year University Transfer Liberal Arts student at Chippewa Valley Technical College, Aly Roth doesn’t have a bunch of professional clothes. 


When she and her friends happened upon the pop-up Career Closet at the College this week, she took a few minutes to look through the clothes and shoes donated.


Money Matters, a group that offers services to students, takes gently used professional clothing items throughout the year and offers CVTC students opportunities to pick an outfit at no cost to the student.


Roth’s long-term goal is to receive her doctorate degree in physical therapy. But from now until then, she plans to get more work experience and even internships in the field.


The clothes she picked out this week can help with those tasks.


“My plan is to kind of branch out with jobs,” said Roth, 18, who works as a Certified Nursing Assistant for Dove Healthcare. “I’m going to get a full-time job over the summer. The clothes give me good interview options.”


In addition to helping with interview clothes, Money Matters offers financial tips and education, resume building and mock interview guidance.
