Secure a Job with the Dress for Success Mentorship Programme

At Dress for Success, we have been adapting to our new working arrangements, to provide the services that are most needed at this time.

The difficult reality to be faced is that many more women are now unemployed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact, the pandemic and its economic implications have had a disproportionate effect on women’s employment.

If you, or your partner, has lost a job or you’re trying to enter or renter employment, you’re not alone and we understand the difficulties and challenges at this time. We are working hard to support as many women as we can.

One the services we have adapted is our online mentoring programmes for women who are impacted by unemployment.

The Mentorship Programme

The programme matches women with trained mentors to provide support and guidance, in line with your specific goals to get back to work. Our mentors can work with you on CV preparation, interview coaching and career advice.

The programme is flexible to work around your needs, and sessions can be done by video call, phone call or by email.

The programme includes:

  • An initial consultation to identify your goals and objectives.
  • 6 tailored sessions across six months.
  • Developing a tailored plan of action to meet the goals identified.
  • Support and guidance on opportunities and challenges throughout the process.

There are also opportunities to join workshops on topics such as confidence-building and CV preparation.

Mentors 

All of our mentors are trained and matched with women that they can best support, based on individual goals and objectives.

As well as our own Dress for Success HR experts, we have partnered with companies such as AbbVie, JP Morgan, Verizon, BNY Mellon and William Fry. Members of their teams have now become trained mentors, ready to lend a supporting hand to get mentees into work.
