Many unemployed individuals need support and services while looking for a job or career. Seeking employment can be demoralizing and confusing. It’s difficult to know where to begin or how to demonstrate skills and abilities to regain job stability. Since 1990, Orange County-based Working Wardrobes has been helping unemployed people get back to work. They serve nearly 5,000 clients annually through a variety of programs. It’s not just about offering work clothes; their services range from resume creation, skills and personality assessments, interview preparation, job coaching, and certification programs. Yet, they also help candidates dress for success through its Success Suit program. They’ve professionally dressed more than 100,000 people in the past 30 years. They also partner with corporations, educational programs, community agencies, and civic partners to further opportunities and help clients gain confidence so they may be successful in landing their next role. I was fortunate enough to speak with Working Wardrobes’ CEO Bonni Pomush about the organization’s tailored services that help thousands of people get back to work to earn The Power of a Paycheck™ and learned even more about their empowerment programs.
