“Dress for Success…. helped me understand what I can do and what opportunities are available. I was stuck in a certain mindset and needed to change that; I think it can help other women change their outlook as well.”
Nguevese had been out of the job market for a long time and endured a difficult time in her personal life, which diminished her confidence. As she began to look for a fresh start and a new career outside of retail, an employment specialist referred her to Dress for Success Ottawa.
Leaving the boutique with a dress, Anne Klein suit jacket, boots and purse, she had a complete feminine professional look. “I felt brand new! I was professional and classy,” said Nguevese. “Being January, it was the perfect beginning to a new year and a new me!” Nguevese attended an interview shortly after and was even complimented on her outfit. The hiring manager loved her suit jacket! She received a two-month contract working in marketing and is actively searching for another position.
Thank you for your support and for helping women like Nguevese!
