We were thrilled with the candidates we received thanks to our posting on the Rightfully Sewn Jobs Board. Résumés had the experience and skills we were looking for. It was great to have a chance to target a community whose “members” were sewing and fashion enthusiasts versus weeding through hundreds of applicants received via traditional job boards.
