After some guidance and advice on selecting interview-appropriate apparel from Kirsten, GKA’s Fashion Blogger, the interns did some shopping and were able to choose a few items each to add to their professional wardrobes. Their “new” clothes and the skills they are picking up through Project SEARCH will help give them the confidence they need as they go forth seeking competitive employment in the community.
