27 Oct Career Scoop: The dish on our services
The Goodwill Career Solutions division provides job readiness, job training, job placement and job retention services for people who are unemployed and seeking employment. We offer many choices or “flavors” for clients to select. We’ll speak more specifically about these choices in future postings.
Sometimes people who are unemployed have experienced some difficulties in their lives. These difficulties may make it that much harder to find a job or keep a job. One difficulty may be someone who has been through a downsizing. In some cases, some encouragement, assistance in updating a resume and some job leads may be all it takes. Another difficulty may be someone who doesn’t have a HS diploma or GED. Aside from referring someone to GED classes, Goodwill helps folks learn how to complete applications, resumes and generally present themselves in the correct light.
Our counselors work individually with job seekers to determine their particular interests and abilities to better focus the job search direction. We also offer some short term training programs for people who are interested in learning new jobs.
Keep checking back to learn more about our services and to read about clients who have been successful in their job search process through Goodwill’s Career Solutions Division. This year we hope to assist more than 11,000 people with finding jobs in their communities. If you need our services, maybe you will be one of them.
