Novell Riley leading suit drive

Novell Riley of Prudential California Realty’s La Jolla office is coordinating a Business Suit Drive to help women prepare for the local job market and polish their interview skills. The drive will offer free gently used suits for job seekers and women who need business attire.

Women will be able to come out and select a suit of their choice, listen to guest speakers from local employment agencies, and enjoy the day, light refreshments and their new suit. The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. June 11 at Prudential’s La Jolla office at 1299 Prospect St.

“Helping people feel empowered provides me with a deep sense of fulfillment,” Riley said. “I was lucky enough to have a mentor counsel me through various periods of my career. The advice that I received has made an extremely positive impact on my personal and professional life. This event is a great opportunity for the community and my colleagues to give back in these very difficult times.”

A real estate veteran with more than 10 years of experience, Riley has ranked in the top 11 percent of Prudential’s 60,000 agents nationwide for her sales performance. She was the No. 10-ranked individual in the La Jolla office last year.
