Interview Wear Consultation
Looking the part at an interview doesn’t just help boost your confidence and performance, it also helps to make a great first impression with your potential employer.
At our online Interview Wear Consultation, you will be paired with one of our expert stylists on a private Zoom call and be provided with:
- A consultation to find the right outfit that makes you feel confident and comfortable.
- Advice on how to style the clothes you already have available to you in your wardrobe.
- A suiting service looking at the clothing available in our boutique, with a chosen outfit posted to you.
The consultation and outfit are completely free to all women currently seeking work or training. Our boutique is stocked with pre-owned clothing which we carefully select to make sure it is of the highest quality, professional and stylish.
