About Referral Partners

Referral Partner Responsibilities

Referral partners are organizations in our community that identify individuals dealing with financial and employment hardships and refer them to Suits to Careers, Inc to receive professional clothing and career development services.

Clients referred to Suits to Careers, Inc. through a referral partner agency should be:
  • Unemployed or Underemployed
  • Actively seeking employment or pursuing schooling in preparation for a career or vocation.

2016 WIC Income Guidelines
We want to ensure your clients are provided with the best options for their job search or career change. Therfore, we ask that our referral partners

  • Send client referrals as early as possible (soon after first engaging with a client) in order to the suit the client* before they visit job fairs, attend networking events, or go to an interview.

  • Fill out referral forms completely before faxing.

  • Inform the Suits to Careers program manager of any accomodations needed for a client, including, but not limited to, Spanish translator, and wheel chair or disability accomodations.

  • Inform Suits to Careers of the need for accomodations prior to or at the time of sending in the referral.

  • Inform clients of available Suits to Careers services including, but not limited to the Computer Class, Career Advancement & Resource Education (CARE) program, Career Center Services, employment retention program, and any new or additional services you are informed about.

Please be sure your client understands:
  • They must come alone to their appointment.
  • They must bring a form of photo ID.
  • A volunteer is scheduled to assist them, so to respect the efforts of our volunteers and staff, and ensure all of our clients are seen in a timely manner, we ask that clients show up on time.

About the Referral Process

Referral Partners identify clients in need of professional clothing and/or additional career development services, such as computer literacy training, financial education, professional development, resume or cover letter assistance, and much more.

The referral partner faxes a referral form to Suits to Careers, Inc.  The program manager will review the form and contact the client to schedule an appointment.

How to Become a Referral Partner

To qualify to be referral partner, an organization must serve individuals with income levels below the poverty line, and provide their clients with a job training or job ready program. Interested referral agencies may fill out a referral partner application.
