A new Career Wardrobe store designed to help potential employees look good for job interviews has opened in Lansdowne Borough, reports Natalie Brown for CBS 3 Philly.
The nonprofit clothing boutique, based in Philadelphia, has been outfitting women and men for decades who find themselves transitioning back into the workforce.
“The majority of the clients we serve are men and women who are transitioning from public assistance programs, who are often under-educated, underemployed and in doing a job search they need to compete with everybody else out there,” Career Wardrobe’s executive director Sheri Cole says.
The nonprofit offers free clothing to those in need, as well as career advice for those looking to make that all-important first impression in the job search.
The new Lansdowne boutique is a welcome site for new shopper Samai Nalley.
“Individuals need an extra push to going out there and seeking jobs and definitely want to go in there looking presentable,” he said.
Career Wardrobe has outfitted more than 90,000 people on their path to employment. They have locations in Philadelphia, Delaware and in Bucks County. The clothing boutique will be celebrating 25 years in 2020.
