The University of Pittsburgh Career Service Center and JCPenney will join forces on Sunday for an event designed to help students dress for success as they exit college to the workplace.

JCPenney will host the private event at its Ross Park Mall location after the store closes this Sunday, to accommodate hundreds of students looking for advice on what to wear for job interviews.

Faculty, staff and alumni from Pitt and members of the JCPenney team will offer insights into the latest career fashion trends, how a suit should fit, what size to buy, how to tie a tie and various other concerns for students headed to job interviews.

JCPenney will offer a 40 percent discount to all University of Pittsburgh students with a valid ID during the event.

Students will have a chance to receive a free mini-makeover at Sephora Inside JCPenney and receive a free salon consultation and xpress bar hair touch-up at the JCPenney Salon.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
