Ten women from the Fraser Valley recently received professional makeovers to assist them in securing employment.
The program was a partnership between Dress for Success and AbbotsfordWORKS/WorkBC.
Participants met for breakfast in Abbotsford and were then transported to Vancouver in a limousine to Dress for Success on Hastings Street in Vancouver.
There, they met with a personal stylist and selected a new outfit suitable for job interviews.
The group next went to Holt Renfrew for professional makeup applications. Each participant left with a goodie bag filled with products. All of the services were donated by local sponsors.
AbbotsfordWORKS and Dress for Success are both non-profit organizations that prepare individuals in the community for the interview process and to search for work and maintain employment.
