RALEIGH, N.C. — People who lost jobs as a result of the pandemic are using a Dress for Success program to get back in the workforce.

Dress for Success is working with Wake Tech and others to facilitate the program.

North Carolina tech giant Lenovo just donated $35,000 to the program.

The Dress for Success four-week virtual job acquisition program, Going Places Network, helps unemployed and under-employed Dress for Success clients gain professional skills, accelerate their job search and build confidence through weekly training sessions, one-on-one career coaching and networking in a supportive environment.

Skilled presenters, coaches and mentors will help people uncover their strengths, build interview skills, confidence and their networks.
