Job Help for Veterans and Civilians

Sally Rueli, boutique owner, did a presentation for Dress for Success at our last program.

“How to Dress for Success and Ace Your Job Interview”, will be presented at the Forest Park Branch Library (380 Belmont Avenue) on Wednesday, November 12, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Dress for Success Boutique Director Sally Rueli is excited to offer this informative presentation on proper attire in the workplace and for job interviews. She will show past clients modeling their work garments, and the various vendors who contributed to the “new, professional look” will be highlighted. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get valuable insider information on business dress from Ms. Rueli and have her answer your questions concerning the anxiety filled interview process. According to a Forbes Magazine article, “What you wear to your next job interview might be more important than you think. Why? Whether you like it or not, your appearance is the first thing people notice about you–and first impressions are usually formed within the first 30 seconds.”

Dress for Success Western MA (located at 503 Worthington St., Springfield, MA) is a nonprofit agency that promotes 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 life.
