Listen in as we discuss ways to ensure your first impression is pristine! We conversed with Image Consultant and Web Designer, Nahema Washington, Owner of Black Gold Imaging on how you can put your best foot forward virtually and in-person when interviewing for any position with THE POWER OF APPEARANCE!
