Living her dreams

Congrats to Bari Winters. The borough daughter and 2012 member of the YAI Program landed her dream job with the help of instructor Kim Pantin, who was able to give Bari all the tools and techniques she needed to land the job of the century at Old Navy in Manhattan.

Kim helped get Bari ready for her job interview, coaching her on how to talk to customers, dress for the job, and interact with colleagues. Kim sat in on her interview with Bari and was surprised with her knowledge about the Old Navy brand and its merchandise. Not only did Bari know specific styles they carry, she even mastered the smallest details, like knowing which items run large or small. Kim knew that Bari liked Old Navy, but she had no idea that she was that knowledgeable about the brand.

Bari loves her job, which includes helping customers find what they are looking for as well as sorting and folding clothing.

Standing O wishes Bari every success!
