Meet Our Staff: Destiny Reynolds

Suited for Success’s Executive Assistant, Destiny Reynolds, started as a volunteer in our boutique. Her positivity and style went a long way in encouraging and preparing our clients to look their best for their interviews. She joined our staff in 2016, and manages our Career Center and referral agencies.

Q: Can you tell us about yourself?
A: My name is Destiny Reynolds. I enjoy giving back, traveling, and the creative arts. I am from central Ohio. I have a love for nature and family history. I have a BA in history and a minor in business.

Q: What was the transition from Ohio to Miami like?
A: It was a natural transition. Initially I was contracted to assist with art exhibitions during Art Miami and Art Basel.

Q: Can you tell us about your journey from volunteer to Executive Assistant?
A: The journey from volunteer to Executive Assistant has been a great experience. It allowed for a hands-on experience and a better understanding of our clients.

Q: What are some of your passions outside of the office?
A: My passions outside of the office are health and fitness plus creating for my small business.

Q: What have you learned from interacting with clients on a daily basis?
A: Interacting with our clients on a daily basis has taught me that most are appreciative of our services. They usually leave confident and empowered to get the job. It assures me that we are completing our mission.

Q: Can you talk about one moment at Suited for Success / Dress for Success Miami that uplifted or encouraged you?
A: A moment that uplifted me at Suited for Success / Dress for Success Miami happened recently. Not only did we help underprivileged students with interview suitings, but we were also able to help them with nice prom dresses and tuxedos. The students were not expecting so much and seemed overwhelmed with joy. It was a very rewarding moment.

Q: Can you tell us about managing the Career Center and how these services impact clients?
A: I manage the career center effectively by staying organized with both the volunteers and the clients. I follow-up with both parties both before and after their appointments. The clients are usually engaged with our volunteers and eager to learn how to modify a resume. They learn a lot from our volunteers’ expertise.

Q: What do you hope for your future with Dress for Success?
A: I hope to grow with the company in recruiting for the career center. Plus, produce more behind the scenes content for our social media channels.

Bacardi volunteers lend a helping hand [Video]

This summer, Bacardi volunteers donated their time to help our Vets for Success participants with their resumes and other digital job search training. Hear some of their stories above.

Veterans get a leg up toward success

Veterans get a leg up toward success

This June, we graduated 17 veterans from the first cohort of our Vets for Success Employment Skills Training Program. The new program provides educational and vocational opportunities and life skills training, preparing individuals to secure and retain gainful employment and achieve economic self-sufficiency.

In preparation for the program, participants received one-on-one resume help, generously offered by volunteers from Bacardi. The program included Suited for Success’s signature employment skills training curriculum, as well as advanced customer service training applicable to any industry. The program was capped off by presentations and mock interview practice with local employers Walmart and Capital One. All 17 program graduates received certificates and interview suits from Suited for Success, as well as ongoing support through our Career Center with their resumes and online job search and application process.

The response from attendees was unanimously positive. In post-program evaluations, clients reported increased confidence in their job search and enhanced skill sets in the areas of job searching and interviewing. All clients expressed that they would recommend this program to other veterans.

“The training was very helpful,” reported one veteran. “Retraining of this information brings confidence that we (vets) can get employed.”

Another cohort of Vets for Success was held in August, with 14 veterans completing the program. The next cohort will be Nov. 6-9, 2017, at the Culmer Community Center in Overtown. The program is open to military veterans and family members who are unemployed or underemployed and actively job seeking. Interested participants, case managers, and corporate partnership representatives should contact Jeff Wahl at jwahl@suitedforsuccess.org.

Vets for Success is supported by Walmart, the Norman Braman Philanthropic Fund, Capital One, Judith and Norman Fields Family Fund, Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation, Ocean Bank, Amazon, TD Charitable Foundation, AmTrust Bank, and Publix Super Market Charities.

13912808_10154448007867220_8248860401199229415_n (1)This summer, Dress for Success Miami received a grant from Allegany Franciscan Ministries to update its Career Center technology and office equipment. Now our clients have the opportunity to learn the latest technology crucial to today’s job environment.

Eligible clients may now browse jobs online before or after their suiting sessions, or make an appointment to receive one-on-one for resume consultation, online job search guidance and interview practice with one of our great volunteers.

We are looking for more volunteers to commit to one or two shifts a month (typically a long lunch hour) at our Career Center. We are open to individual volunteers as well as corporate partners looking for employee volunteer opportunities. Please contact Angeline Evans at angeline@suitedforsuccess.org to learn more.

The grant also provided for computers, desks and other office supplies for our two new employees, who were hired in June thanks to an increase in our contract with the Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency to assist with administrative support and community outreach. Thank you, Allegany Franciscan Ministries!
