The Enterprise Holdings Foundation recently presented a donation of $5,000 to California University of Pennsylvania’s Career and Professional Development Center

The money will be used for career-related events or initiatives that benefit Cal U students. 

“Through Jill Thomas, talent acquisition manager at Enterprise, we have a had a really good track record with Enterprise,” said CPDC director Rhonda Gifford. “Each of the past three years we have had 10 students become full-time candidates or interns. They have a great management trainee program that enables our students to advance into corporate positions ranging from accounting, finance, IT and marketing.” 

One of the major initiatives the donation will support is the CPDC’s Campus Closet Project. 

Located in Room 138 of the Natali Student Center, the Campus Closet takes donations of professional and business-casual wardrobe options to help prepare Cal U students for interviews, career fairs, internships and jobs. 

Donations are accepted from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. on weekdays or can be dropped off during non-business hours at the Natali Information Desk in the building’s lobby.
