Get Employment Ready!


To add insult to injury the unprofessional text from an assistant manager at Miller & Carter mocked the applicant with a laughing face emoji and disrespectful language. The employer concerned commented that the text message was intended for the manager and was sent to the applicant in error.

Jenny Holloway, CEO of FashionCapital and sister company Fashion Enter, said:

I do think the response by text by Miller & Carter was totally unacceptable!  However, here at Fashion Enter we understand how tough getting a job and the interview process can be. That’s why we have created our Employability Course where we really can prepare you and increase your chances of success.”
