The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Arizona paralegal Bonny Sue Robbins responded to Jill Gardner’s recent Craigslist request which stated: “I’m in need of women’s clothing for a size 10/12. Have job interviews, no good clothes. Please help if you can.” Ms. Gardner admits it was not easy to place the ad, but she is seeking work in the hotel industry and did not have any suitable clothes from her previous employment in an oil refinery.
In addition to business clothes, Ms. Robbins also provided encouragement to Ms. Gardner, saying, “we’ll keep in touch so that I can go out and celebrate when you get your new job.”

If you have good business clothes that you are no longer wearing, this is an especially good time to donate them to organizations that help low-income and unemployed individuals assemble an interview outfit or work wardrobe, such as Dress for Success.
