HELPING WOMEN MOVE UP THE CAREER LADDER

     A local organization is helping women who do not have the resources to dress well for their job interviews. The Women's Business Association provides women with the clothes they need to look professional and ready for the business world. The women who use this service need to show that they are financially in need and that they are actively looking for work. After a short interview with a volunteer at the Women's Business Association, the women can choose from a room full of donated dresses, skirts and business suits.

     "The clothes they gave me made me look more professional, and made me feel more confident," said Beverly Sills, a recent recipient of two dresses and a business suit. "I knew I needed to dress up for the interview to be a secretary, but I didn't know what to wear, and I couldn't afford to buy any new clothes. I am now a secretary in a small office, and I love my job. I hope that some day I can donate clothes to the Association so that other women can Dress for Success".

     Women who are interested in receiving clothes for job interviews can apply at the Association's downtown office 345 S. Wasatch Ave., or call 471-5555. Women who are interested in donating women's business clothes of all sizes and that are in good condition can bring them to the office MWF from 9am-1pm.
