The way you dress says a lot about you! It’s an important piece to the puzzle in the workplace and helps you make a lasting first impression. Imagine for one moment that you could not provide yourself with a proper uniform or training needed for the modern workplace. That’s where Dress for Success becomes extremely helpful.
Dress for Success is a charity organization that “serves under-employed and unemployed women in the Triangle by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Their mission is to “empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and development tools to help women thrive in work and life.” Most recently, Dress for Success has also started to focus helping veteran women transition back into civilian life by offering a host of resources and training. Some of those tools include an interview suit, a resume, and one on one support and access to resources to ensure a smooth transition.
