LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - It's not always easy to make an impression at an interview and land a new job, but one area college is lending a helping hand.
Western Technical College distributed the donations for their annual "Suits for Success" drive on campus Wednesday.
The effort helps provide business attire to Western students and members of the community who otherwise might not be able to afford it.
Organizers say dressing the part doesn't just give a good first impression to potential employers -- it can also boost your confidence during a job search.
"You can know the right things to say, but if you're not coming into that interview in professional dresswear and showing you're making that effort and you have that confidence, it's really hard to be yourself and go for that job," said business management student Stephanie Larson.
This is the third year Western has hosted the "Suits for Success" drive.
