Central Bank Hosts Career Development Event for Dress for Success

Joanne Show, Vice President of Central Bank Southwest Florida is pleased to announce that Central Bank will be hosting a career development event for Dress for Success SW Florida on Wednesday, August 7th from 12 to 3 p.m. The event will take place at their Fort Myers branch, located at 1520 Royal Palm Square Blvd, #100, and will include mock interviews, a tutorial on making presentations, and food and refreshments supplied by Papa Murphy’s, who will also show Dress for Success members how to easily prepare meals while on the go.

 “Central Bank is happy to host this event for Dress for Success. We support their mission and hope that members walk away from the event with new knowledge and skills that help them in the workplace transition,” says Joanne Show.

The event will offer Dress for Success members an opportunity to learn valuable new skills for the workplace and home.

They will be bringing their own ovens to demonstrate the ease and convenience of making meals at home after a busy work day.

“More than just offering an opportunity to learn new career development skills, Dress for Success aims to support our members in all aspects of life. Transitioning to employment can often put stress on home life, and we are glad that Papa Murphy’s could help make this transition easier by showing our members easy ways for women on the go to prepare meals at home,” says Barbara Dell, Executive Director of Dress for Success SW Florida.
