Inexpensive Professional Clothes

               A first impression is one of the most important aspects of an interview. It can either make or break you. The one thing you can control about your first impression is what you are wearing. They say, “Dress for the career you want, not the one you have.”  So, go out there with confidence and wear your professional clothing with pride.

               As professionals, dressing to impress is essential. But, where can you find professional clothing on a budget? You can spend upwards of $100 on a nice business suit from a department store. You might not know it, but a wonderful opportunity to purchase professional clothes at an affordable price is right under our noses. Goodwill Industries International, Inc. provides very affordable and gently used clothing to anyone. Goodwill diverts more than two billion pounds of clothing and household goods every year from landfills. They care about the community and are also trying to make the environment better. By doing so, they are creating job-training opportunities for those in need of work.

               My experiences at Goodwill have been nothing but great. The one here in Manhattan offers quite the assortment of dress pants, blazers, sweaters, and even dress shoes. You can also donate your gently used clothes to Goodwill so others can get use out of them. If you want potential employers to take you seriously without breaking the bank, I would suggest buying your professional clothes at your local Goodwill.
