Career Wardrobe’s programs start by assisting women with the interview process, and continue by helping women develop skills needed to become valuable employees and retain employment. Its Dressing and Image Consultation Program is the entry point, providing women with the resources they need to increase self-confidence and prepare them to market themselves in their job search. Other services include resume review and interviewing skills classes, and its Gateway to Success Job Readiness Course, an ongoing educational and networking support for continued growth and development. These services round out the technical skills learned in job training programs by addressing the skills that are absolutely vital to succeeding in a career, such as communication, problem-solving, and interpersonal relationship-building.
Career Wardrobe Program Director Caitlin Day says, “Women come to Career Wardrobe to get ready for their interviews. We provide them with a suit, blouse, accessories, shoes, and a handbag to help them look and feel their best. Now, thanks to this generous donation from Baci Lingerie, we are able to offer the ladies who come to Career Wardrobe the essential building block of any well-dressed woman – a quality bra and panties. Many women come to us looking not just for professional clothing, but also for some important ‘me’ time, where she can feel pampered, even for just a little bit. Being able to offer Baci Lingerie to the ladies is just another way to give them some well-deserved pampering!”

Those individuals who do not qualify for a referral may utilize Career Wardrobe’s services for a full year through its Individual Membership Option, which requires a minimal donation of either $20 or $10 and 2 hours of volunteering.

About Career Wardrobe:
Since 1995, Career Wardrobe has served women in Philadelphia with the clothing, career skills, and confidence necessary to transition to work. In that time, the organization has helped nearly 75,000 women on their journeys to independence. More than 70% of its support comes from private sources including individuals, corporations, and earned income. Having the support of Career Wardrobe is a critical element in employment success for low-income women who have limited resources and an ever-decreasing network of supportive services. In 2011, 85% of women responding to Career Wardrobe’s follow-up surveys reported that they were no longer receiving cash assistance within 6 months of their appointment because they were working. The impact of this on the Delaware Valley economy — to the tune of $1.2 million in savings for taxpayers on public cash assistance benefits alone — cannot be understated.
