When I set my vision for The Ladder Back Down, one of my core #objectives was to start an #interview clothes loaning scheme for #black #students and #professionals – i.e. to provide a loaned outfit for candidates attending interviews.
This idea went out of the window due to #COVID but, as things start to open up, an alternative idea I’ve come up with is to start offering interview clothing vouchers to two #black interview candidates in England each month.
Once you’ve watched this, feel free to comment with your personal interview tips or comment on the YouTube page and send me a DM to confirm you have an upcoming interview and would like to be considered for a voucher.
We’re all in this tough journey called life together – and it gives me great pleasure when I hear testimonies from fellow black humans who have benefited from the Ladder Back Down’s mentoring scheme or workshops and are now thriving in their #careers.
