How to Begin
Suited For Success is staffed by trained volunteers. Clients are scheduled by appointment only. Once your program has become a Community Partner with Suited for Success, appointments can be scheduled by calling 405.521.1089. We will discuss the needs and sizes of your client and confirm an appointment date. If we are unavailable when you call, please leave your name, the name of your program, and telephone number. A representative of Suited for Success will return your call as soon as possible.
As a Community Partner with Suited For Success, you will receive the Client Referral--Initial Appointment and Client Referral--Second Appointment forms. After scheduling an appointment for your client with Suited for Success, complete the information on the Appointment forms.
Review both forms with your client before signing. Sign the forms and fax them to
(405) 948-0272. Please emphasize the importance of keeping the scheduled appointment and being on time. If there is a need to cancel an appointment call Suited for Success at (405) 521-1089 and leave a message preferably 24 hours before the appointment.
A notified cancellation allows a rescheduling of your client's appointment. A client will only be able to reschedule once.
What can the client expect on the day of the appointment?
Because our space is limited and individual attention is given during each appointment, the client should come alone. Upon arrival, our trained volunteer will treat the client to a boutique-style experience, suggesting professional clothing choices and offering expertise on proper size and fit. Two full outfits (depending on size availability) are provided, along with coordinating accessories, shoes, bag, undergarments, and unopened makeup and toiletries. After the client has obtained employment, she may return for a second visit and choose additional pieces that will give her the extra boost in confidence to make a great impression on the job.
After the appointment, we will follow up with our Community Partner and client to ask for an evaluation of our service and learn about the client's success in securing employment. This information is required by our underwriters and is the basis for funding needed to continue our efforts at Suited for Success. We are looking forward to working with you and welcome your questions and comments!
