A WorkPlace Opportunity
As part of a national grant from the Walmart Foundation, Dress for Success Mid-Fairfield County launched the Going Places Network by Walmart in April 2011 to help unemployed and under-employed Dress for Success Mid-Fairfield County 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. With the addition of the Going Places Network by Walmart to the Dress for Success Mid-Fairfield County portfolio of services, disadvantaged women will have access to support and services for every phase of their professional lives, starting with the job search and leading to sustained employment and self-sufficiency.
