In January 2011 we heard about an organisation called Dress for Success, their mission is to promote the economic independence of women who are trying to get back into the workplace. They do it by helping women who have secured an interview “Dress for Success”, they also provide interview coaching and mentoring as well as an ongoing support network. Clothes are provided via donation but also from several leading retailers, its a great service and we have been providing interview training for some of their clients. To find out more about the London arm of Dress for Success please go to http://www.dressforsuccess.org or call Sinead Hasson on 020 7637 1300.
