Interview & Work Term Attire: An Exclusive Resource for our Students

SUIT UP WITH CONFIDENCE

Announcing an exclusive partnership between Arts & Science Co-op with Dress for Success Toronto & Dress your Best Toronto

As an undergraduate co-op student, you have a lot of expenses. Don’t let the high cost of purchasing professional business attire be a barrier to presenting a lasting impression in your interviews and beyond.

To help with this, we’re excited to announce a new exclusive partnership with nonprofit organizations Dress for Success Toronto and Dress your Best Toronto, designed to offer Arts & Science Co-op students a suiting session with a stylist as well as free business outfits to keep (including accessories and shoes).

Registration fee waived for all Arts & Science Co-op students

In this new partnership, Dress for Success Toronto/Dress Your Best Toronto is waiving the registration fee for our students. Arts & Science Co-op students are able to make an appointment for an interview suiting session with a stylist, and if hired, return for an employment suiting session for additional outfits.

Interested? Here are your next steps:

  1. Let your Student Development Coordinator/Work Term Engagement Coordinator know that you're interested.
  2. They'll complete a form that gives you access to DfS Toronto/DyB Toronto services.
  3. Use that form to make an appointment. You can get suiting for a FULL interview outfit including accessories, which will all be yours to keep.
  4. Once hired, you'll have the opportunity to return for an employment suiting session for additional outfits.
  5. Lastly, by signing up for a suiting appointment your email will be added to their mailing list so you’ll get updates on events and their monthly men’s and women’s $2 clothing sales.

All clothing/apparel items are new or gently used.
