About Referral Partners

Referral Partner Responsibilities

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.
