There's an old saying; Clothes make the man (or woman), and while this may not be technically true, it is true that the clothing you are wearing will influence how you act and your confidence in yourself. There are many situations where this extra confidence is helpful, and none more so than in a job interview.
"Your resume is flawless, but that tie says substitute math teacher"
Job interviews are high stress situations and often times without the proper clothes, a person's confidence can suffer leading to a poor performance and no job. But fear not, one organization is taking aim at this problem and helping less fortunate women with an astounding success rate. Dress for Success helps less fortunate women get access to the clothes and the tools they need to become successful leaders. They not only provide dress clothes, but work through the interview process and provide skill mapping services to help the clients realize their full worth. By training and helping dress women, Dress for Success give them the confidence to go out and finally take control of their lives and become leaders in their community. We were able to sit down with Dress for Success Executive Director, Donna Deteau to discuss the organization in depth.
