First Impressions Workshop

“Success seams to be connected to action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they never quit.” – J.W. Marriot

How We Help

First Impressions Workshops

First Impressions Workshop is a specialized, three-hour workshop only addressing mock interviews, healthy living techniques, and professional attire opportunities. During the workshop, in-depth mock interviews are provided for clients who are seeking additional assistance with perfecting their interviewing skills. Additionally, no-cost pre-interview haircuts and beard trimmings are provided to all attendees through community partnerships. These services instill personal confidence and provide a well-groomed professional appearance for attendees. Through partnerships with organizations such as Men’s Wearhouse, we are able to provide professional interview attire to those attendees who do not have the financial means to purchase interview attire.

Our Intent

To pair each Veteran with the right employer in a position that matches their interest and skill level.

We conduct career development workshops and seminars throughout our many locations. These regularly scheduled programs focus on various employment needs of our clients and help strengthen lasting partnerships within our communities.
