WATCH ABOVE: The Moores Canadian Suit Drive benefits at-risk men and women transition into the workforce.
MONTREAL – It takes less than five minutes for managers and recruiters to decide a candidate’s fate when hiring a new employee.
First impressions are crucial.
The majority of recruiters insist that unprofessional attire can hurt a candidate’s chances of being hired.
For men, a good suit can be the only thing standing in the way of securing a new career and saying ‘good-bye’ to unemployment – but suits are pricey.
“Canada’s rate of unemployment is at 7 per cent,” said Moores regional manager, Roger Assouad.
The campaign runs until July 31 and clothing items can be dropped-off at any Moores location in the province.
