THE HF GUIDE TO A SUCCESSFUL INTERVIEW

THE HF GUIDE TO A 

SUCCESSFUL INTERVIEW

  • Prepare for your virtual interview by setting up a professional background in a clean, clutter-free room with good lighting and no noises or distractions.

  • Dress up and plan to wear a full outfit (not just the top half!) to boost confidence and help make you feel the part.

  • If you ever get discouraged during your job search remind yourself it's temporary: the world will get back to normal and when the time comes to enter the workforce, you'll be ready!

  • You never know when a position at your dream company will open up! Prepare to apply by getting your resume and cover letter ready in advance. Be flexible about your goals and open to different opportunities.

  • Gain experience by applying for jobs related to your field so when the time comes you'll already have a foot in the door. Prepare yourself for the interview by researching the company and position you're applying for.

  • Use the extra time you have now to start networking. Use LinkedIn, social media, and even people you may already know as resources to gain knowledge and make connections.

SUSTAINABILITY

A FULL CIRCLE ECONOMY

Hickey Freeman is taking steps to participate in a full circle economy through our use of textiles produced with sustainable, biodegradable fibers and ensuring that none of the garments we make go to waste. Part of this process is ensuring unused fabrics are reused and clothing is given away. 


Another step is considering the fabrics we use to make garments, the processes that take place during production, and what happens to garments years later. We ask ourselves how we can minimize the production of waste through the use of eco-friendly materials that have a less harmful impact when decomposed into soil and finding ways to repurpose and reuse materials.  

USE OF SUSTAINABLE FIBERS

Every season we work to make our collections more sustainable through the use of natural fibers as a way of reducing the impact textiles have on the environment.


The lasting effect of using eco-friendly, biodegradable fibers is the difference it makes in reducing the environmental footprint of the textile and fashion industry.  


Learn more about our commitment to sustainability with information on our Honey Way Collection and Bemberg linings. (see below).

SUSTAINABILITY

We are making strides to reduce the impact of textile waste on landfills through FABSCRAP, a non-profit organization addressing NYC’s commercial textile waste. In 2018, our recycling of 503 pounds of textile waste has prevented 3.7 tons of CO2 emissions and is the equivalent of nearly 87 newly planted trees.

DELFINO HONEYWAY: 

ECO-FRIENDLY FINISHING & WATER CONSERVATION

The Honey Way Collection gets its name from the unique beeswax treatment that gives the fabric its performance attributes: water repellence, stain resistance, breathability and natural stretch - while keeping a supple feel to luxury cloth. The eco-friendly process avoids the use of harsh chemicals and their damaging water run-off. 


This collection is designed for those who seek maximum refinement with minimal environmental footprint.

LA RESERVA NACIONAL PAMPA GALERAS

At La Reserva Nacional Pampa Galeras, Amber visited the majestic vicuña in their natural habitat. The reserve is Peru's most important center dedicated to the conservation of the vicuña, serving as a sanctuary to some 6,000 of the species. 


 As part of a signed agreement with the Peruvian state, the local community complies with the conservation and sustainable use of vicuña fiber. Every year they hold a ceremony called chaccas where hundreds of villagers round up the vicuña from all over the 65 square kilometer reserve, shear the wool without harming the animals, and release them back into the wild.
