Last week, we came to you with a challenge: give us your best interview tips, and we’ll donate one Lyft ride per tip to Dress for Success, an organization that provides career support and development for disadvantaged women. Our goal was to donate 1,000 rides.
Within days, you blew our goal out of the water. Support flooded in from CEOs, founders, businesses, Lyft drivers and passengers, and inspiring men and women all over the world. LinkedIn spread interview tips to thousands of professionals in their network. Women 2.0, Refinery 29, NYLON, and SELF Magazine all invited women across the country to inspire one another. Pandora even created a custom Rides to Success music station for an extra shot of energy.
“We were thrilled by how many people rallied around getting women back to work. With #RidesToSuccess, Lyft is providing more than just a ride to a job interview, they are helping our women take the next step in creating a new life.”
— Joi Gordon, CEO Dress for Success
Here are some of our favorite interview tips shared by you:
After blowing past the 1,000 rides donated goal within just 2 days, we raised our goal, and you met us again. Thanks to your words of wisdom, we’ve donated 1,762 Lyft rides to help women looking for work receive the boost they need to excel professionally.
