Suit YourSelf Interview Clothing & CoachingPittsfield and North Adams MA
"At that first interview I felt like a million bucks. Because someone cared about me in a way no one else did at that time."
"Suit YourSelf helped me carry myself with pride and dignity."
"You have opened a door for me."
Many people entering or re-entering the work force these days either don't know how to dress for a job interview, or can't afford the types of clothes that they need to make a good impression.
As part of Goodwill's Workforce Development programs, the Suit YourSelf program trys to fill that void.
Instilling self-confidence and a can-do attitude, this unique job interview preparation program provides professional business clothing to residents of Berkshire County and surrounding area who are entering or re-entering the workforce. The program is available to agencies and individuals who need work-appropriate clothing for job interviews, job fairs, and when starting a new job.
Thanks to sales in the Goodwill stores and community donations, Suit YourSelf remains free-of-charge to men and women, by appointment, at the Goodwill Training Center, 158 Tyler St., Pittsfield and at the North Adams Goodwill store.

History of SuitYourSelf
Suit YourSelf is a local initiative started in 2005 by a cooperative effort of local community organizations including Zonta of Berkshire County, the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, Berkshire Business and Professional Women, Berkshire Community Action Council, the Christian Center, Mature Workers Inc. and the Corporation for Public Management.
Since 2011, sales at Goodwill stores and community donations fund the program which now also serves those in Goodwill workforce development programs including Berkshire Works Youth Works, and low-income students at Mildred Elley, MCLA and Willliams College. In 2013 and 2014, Suit YourSelf services opened in the North Adams region, thanks to support from the Berkshire Bank Foundation, the Hardman Fund, Northern Berkshire United Way, Berkshire Business and Professional Women and, of course, your purchases and donations at the North Adams Goodwill store.
