RU Career Closet & Professional Headshots

Wednesday, February 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

The RU Career Closet is presented by the Rockford University’s Career Development Department. It is located in the Grace Roper Lounge of the Burpee Student Center.

What is a Professional Headshot? 

A professional headshot is a photograph you use to create a personal brand of who you are. Professional headshots focus on your upper body, including your head and shoulders. Your professional headshot can be used for LinkedIn, your email account, your social media profile picture, online portfolios you may have, or your Zoom, Google, or Skype account for video interviews.

How can I get a Professional Headshot? 

As a bonus for registering for upcoming Career Exploration & Job Fair, students can get a FREE professional headshot! To register for the fair, go to or register on-the-spot during the RU Career Closet event.

What do I wear for my Professional Headshot?

Dress how you would for an interview for a job in your field.

What is the RU Career Closet?

The Career Closet is a place where Rockford University Students can find professional clothing for FREE! The Career Closet is donation-driven and designed specifically for RU students who are looking for professional clothing to wear for an interview or for their first day on-the-job. The closet includes professional clothing of all types: dress pants, shirts, jackets, dresses, skirts, ties and MORE!

How does it work?

Each student will be allowed one outfit per semester and will need to show their Rockford University ID before looking through the Career Closet. Would YOU like to take a look at what the Career Closet has to offer? Make an appointment by emailing or by attending our open hours during lunch.
