Help Disadvantaged Women Find Jobs in South Korea



Supported by Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful campaign, Open Closet assists unemployed women in South Korea. We provide free suit lending, make-up classes and career advice for job interviews, thereby helping them overcome male-oriented social atmospheres and get jobs.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Like other countries, many youths in South Korea are suffering from the continuous recession and severe job crunch today. Especially in the male-dominated society of South Korea, Korean women must overcome sexual discrimination, which makes it more difficult for them to get a job. These women need support to begin again; young women job seekers who just graduated from school, housewives who want to go back to work, women in multi-cultural families, single moms, and any other women are in need.

How will this project solve this problem?

Open Closet lends donated suits to job seekers who have job interviews at a minimum cost. Particularly, we receive not only suits but stories about the clothes and supportive messages for job seekers. Many of our lenders say that it was helpful in giving them confidence. Furthermore, we are resolving worries of unemployed women about make-up for interview through Pretty Powerful Campaign with Bobbi Brown, and making a study of ways to support them in the whole field.

Potential Long Term Impact

It will encourage unemployed women who are daunted by social barriers by delivering supportive messages to them.
