I haven’t been able to secure a job for the past two and a half years since the birth of my son… After two sessions with Dress for Success® Singapore, I got a job! The grooming programme helped boost my confidence and I learnt how to present myself at interviews and emphasise the key points of my work experience. Everything I learnt, I put on the table to leave an `A‘ impression!
