Customer Dress Code 

At our Center, we focus on giving you the tools to attain new or better employment, therefore we require that all participants using our Centers dress in business casual attire. There are employers in our Centers every day to meet and possibly interview potential future employees. For this reason, we want you to be dressed appropriately. You wouldn't get a second chance to make a good first impression. Examples of What to Wear and What Not to Wear

Guidance for Visitors with Children  

Our Center is a place of business where people search for jobs to support their families and maintain their homes. Employers often visit our Center to interview prospective employees. We frequently conduct various training classes and workshops held in nearby rooms. Therefore it is very important that we maintain a calm, professional atmosphere. People looking for jobs have the right to do so without being interrupted by children. If you bring children with you when you visit Career Center, you are responsible for supervising them and making sure they are well-behaved and quiet so they do not disturb other customers or staff. Would I have to leave if I bring a child to SLATE Job Center?
