My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Connections Community Support Programs Inc, Wilmington, DE, USA
My name is Crystal and I started with Dress for Success Program years ago. My first encounter with the organization blows my mind. I was in a bad relationship, bad job and thought of nothing better for myself. Until one day I was invited to attend one of the Saturday meetings and from that day on my life was changed. They taught me how to take seven pieces of clothing and make outfits for a week. I loved this, especially since I didn't have very many clothing to wear. They taught me how to do resumes and how to do successful interviews. My first practice interview went well. Before going to my interview the instructor had given me some good advice. She suggested to me, in doing my interview ask the interviewer to share a personal story about her in the work place and I did just that. At the end of the interview she told me I did a great job and it was her pleasure to talk with me. I then said to her in a laughing way," If this was a real interview would you hire me?" and she said "Yes." I then said, "Are you guys hiring? And she said, "Yes,” I said, “Will you hire me?” And she said," YES." I was hired as a full-time bank teller. I now reside in Atlanta, GA and was once again invited to attend a Saturday Dress for Success (DFS) meeting. I 'm now a part of the Processional Women’s Group (PWG), and giving back to women and I just wanted to say, Thank you.
