At some point during your job search, you’ve probably read at least one article about what to wear to a job interview . If you’ve already had an interview or two, you were probably stressed out about the decision: blue shirt or white shirt? or some other mundane detail like that. For a lot of people, what to wear to an interview is a much bigger issue. That’s where Dress for Success comes in. They are a New York City based non-profit that aims to “promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Every year Dress for Success and their affiliates across the world help more than 40,000 women become better prepared to land a job.
Here’s how Dress for Success works. Women have to be referred to Dress for Success by government or non-profit organizations like homeless shelters, immigration services, job training programs, educational institutions and domestic violence shelters, and the woman must already have an interview scheduled to receive clothing. From there:
On her initial visit a woman receives a suit appropriate for the industry in which she is interviewing and, if available, accessories. After a woman finds a job she returns to Dress for Success for additional clothing that can be mixed and matched to make several outfits, providing her with the foundation for a professional wardrobe.
While we may be best known for providing suits to women, it is our employment retention programs that are the cornerstone of the organization. Soon after Dress for Success was founded we came to recognize that finding work is only one step in a woman’s journey towards economic independence; remaining employed and building a rewarding career are essential if a woman is to become self-sufficient.
You know how stressful the job search process can be, so I’m sure you can appreciate how awesome the Dress for Success’ work is. If you’d like to become a part of their team, you should check out their Jobs page or, actually, their Idealist page which has a couple of entry level jobs posted. These include Development Associate and Affiliate Relations Coordinator. The application details vary, so check out the job descriptions for all of the info. You also might want to check out Dress for Success affiliates across the world for other job opportunities.
