Ahead of the Job interview
The power of first impressions is more than a myth so how you present at a job interview is important.
When you come in to see us, you will be assigned a personal dresser who will work with you to put together an appropriate outfit for your interview. We can also provide advice on hair styling and make-up tips.
All of our clothing is donated to us and we do our best to match your specific style or color preferences.
As a guide you can expect to receive a top, skirt, or trousers, jacket, shoes and accessories
When you are successful in gaining work
Contact both your referral agency and Dress for Success Wellington to let us know that you have a new job. We can then arrange a follow-up appointment providing you with a "Capsule wardrobe" of additional clothing complementing your original interview outfit free of charge. You may also be interested joining our Professional Women's Group.
