More Than 320,000 Interview-Appropriate Items Collected Over Past 15 Years
MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 5, 2017 /CNW/ -- Every year since 2002, Robert Half offices across North America have collected interview-appropriate clothing and accessories for economically disadvantaged job seekers. This year, nearly 24,000 pieces were donated by staff and their local business partners, bringing the 15-year program total to more than 320,000 items. Donations were distributed to nonprofit organizations, including Dress for Success, one of Robert Half's national charity partners, to be shared with their clients.
"Every day, Robert Half helps people find satisfying work, and that includes preparing them for a successful job interview," said Reesa Staten, senior vice president of Corporate Communications for Robert Half. "By providing interview-appropriate attire, the nonprofits we support during our suit drive are giving disadvantaged job seekers a leg up in the job search and boosting their confidence in the process."
