  1. To go along with your blog post, I think Dress for Success is a great non profit organization that helps prepare people to “dress the part” when searching for jobs. Like you explained, there is a very specific type of clothing required for many professions and causal wear is usually not it. Finding a job in the current market is difficult enough but when you add the wardrobe that is expected in the professional workplace, things get even harder. Many people can’t afford this type of clothing. It’s difficult to get a job if you do not look professional and wear the appropriate dress when walking into an interview.

    Dress for Success says, “Job-ready women come to Dress for Success by referral only from a range of non-profit organizations. Each client works one-on-one with a highly-trained volunteer Personal Shopper, who helps her select professional attire and also provides support and encouragement as she prepares for her upcoming interviews.”
