IMG_1305By Randall Higgins |Staff Writer|

The CSUSB Career Center has implemented new times and expanded their services to better meet the needs of campus students.

The Career Center’s office is located on the third floor of University Hall, in room 329. The Career Center staff members will answer questions, make appointments or set up walk-in appointments.

The office hours are new and extended. The office is now open Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Walk-in hours were previously from 1-4 p.m., and are now 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Along with more hours, the Career Center has expanded their services to include a clothes closet for students.

The office manager, Olivia Nanez-Salazar, spoke about having a dream for the Career Center.

Nanez-Salazar had always wanted to add a clothing closet to the Career Center, and with the support of the interim director, Christina Rodriguez, her dream came true.

Two fellow workers, Fallon Pitts and Amy Branham, also asked to be a part of this concept and are now a part of helping students dress for success.

A clothes closet is where one can get gently used business attire, at no charge, for the use of meeting and applying for jobs.

According to Nanez-Salazar, the first impression is a very important part of the job process.

The clothes closet is open just in time for the Spring Career Expo on Tuesday, May 12 at the Santos Manuel Student Union Events Center.

The minimum dress code will be in effect and is business casual, so if you need to upgrade your wardrobe for a job interview, stop by the Career Center.
