New suits bring big smiles to men searching for jobs

Posted: Updated:

When it comes to job hunting, dressing the part could make or break your chance of landing that job.

On Thursday, Billings men, on the hunt for the perfect career, were "Suited for Success!" From blazers to works shoes and everything in between, the Human Resources Development Council, or HRDC, hosted it's annual "Suited for Success" event. It was aimed at helping unemployed men in our community find the perfect suit to give them a professional edge.

HRDC also provides a variety of other services such as job-readiness classes, along with employment and training programs.

For many of the men, Thursday was all about empowerment. The goal, to give the men the confidence they need to face their upcoming job hunt.

Andrea Jones, the marketing coordinator for HRDC says seeing their confidence boost is a great payoff for people who help with the event.

"A lot of these guys don't have suits or clothing for interviews or jobs or things like that and it really is a huge part of even getting a job," said Jones. "It's hard to get a foot in the door when you don't look like you belong there. This gives guys a really big advantage just to look like they belong there and actually get the interview."

 HRDC officials had all the bases covered from head to toe. Men were offered lessons on how to knot a tie, and were offered haircuts at the Bold Beauty Academy.
