Makeover event gets women ready for job interviews

    Since the unemployment issue doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, the folks behind Style Me Hired have decided to host a second event to help women get the look they need to get hired.

    Now through Aug. 31, women in the Philadelphia area can apply for the makeover they need to help them land the job they’ve been trying to get. Unemployed women who are actively seeking employment can fill out the quick application and upload a photo for consideration for the Style Me Hired makeover.


    Salon owner Marc Voci is teaming up with several area salons, the Career Wardrobe and the Omni Hotel to give women a chance to look their professional best for their interviews.

    The makeover event takes place Sept. 26.
