Through our HireHER programming, we offer a variety of career and professional development workshops that are designed to provide women with the skills and knowledge necessary to find a job, keep a job, and build a successful career. Our HireHER workshops are offered on a weekly basis and available virtually and in-person (post-COVID).
Whether they’re actively job-searching or preparing for an upcoming interview, Dress for Success Quad Cities provides women with professional clothing and personalized styling so they can make a great first impression. Any woman who completes one of our HireHER workshops is eligible for an Interview Outfit appointment. Once she has secured full-time employment, she is invited back to receive a capsule wardrobe so she can look and feel her best at her new job.
One-on-one sessions with a Career Coach provide the support, personalized and positive assistance to help a woman discover her own success. These sessions can include career counseling, job search assistance, cover letter design and resume revisions, interview preparation, and much more.
Fill-A-Bag (FAB) Fridays
The average woman spends between $1,800 – $4,000 a year on clothing. One of the ways we empower women to achieve financial independence is by providing subsidized clothing to women throughout the Quad Cities through our Fill-A-Bag (FAB) Friday sales, which provide access to nearly-new and gently-loved high-end professional and casual clothing for a very low cost.
