BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) Hundreds of Virginia Tech students suited up with a professional look Friday as they hope to make a good first impression on potential employers.

The Career Outfitters event was held Thursday and Friday for students needing a new wardrobe and going for job interviews or business meetings.

The second floor of the Smith Career Center turned into a store.
It was the largest amount of clothing the event has received in its five year history.

"It's great. We love it. We love working with the students helping them put their professional attire together. Learn a little bit about professional dress and what it means to go into the business world or the corporate world or just into their professional lives," said Becca Scott, the career and professional development director at VT.

Each student picked out one complete outfit for free. All the clothes were donated.
