Congratulations to Alexis Rutty!


So you’ve spent the last 2-4 years wearing sweats to class and avoiding washing your hair. Now it’s time to get that dream job and you’re starting to realize that your wardrobe needs a complete makeover from sweats to suits. But shopping is expensive and you don’t have any money, so what do you do?

Why not enter to win a $1,000 wardrobe makeover from IGNITE?

All you need to do is submit an essay to us (maximum 500 words) by April 10th explaining why you need a brand-new wardrobe and you could win a $1,000 Cadillac Fairview gift card plus a professional portfolio and certificate for a resume and interview prep session with a Career Advisor provided by Humber Career Centre.
