Career Closet works in concert with qualified agency/training programs to provide office-appropriate clothing to women in financial need who are about to interview for improved employment opportunities. These clients visit Career Closet on an appointment-only basis, where they peruse our broad selection of quality, office-appropriate women's clothing in all sizes, assisted by knowledgeable volunteers who seek to be both professional and supportive. Similarly, clients are expected to honor their appointments, or notify us if they have unavoidably been delayed.
Career Closet relies on the qualified agency/job training program to screen clients for financial need, and for their commitment to improving their skills and employment prospects. We also rely on the referring agency to schedule the appointments (including any need for train or bus pick-up by our volunteers) and to stress to clients the importance of arriving at Career Closet on time, as they would for any professional appointment.
To be approved as a referring agency/job training program and start sending clients to Career Closet for office-appropriate clothing, please send us your name, contact info, and a brief summary of your program to Career Closet at firstname.lastname@example.org . Our Director will then contact you to provide more information, and, we hope, to start providing office-appropriate clothing to your clients, as well.
