WHAT IS CAREER SOLUTIONS?

Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is changing lives through education, training and employment. Career Solutions is the mission arm of Goodwill — helping thousands of Tennesseans each year to find meaningful work and build careers. Many Career Solutions clients are unemployed, underemployed or face some barrier to employment, such as a disability, a lack of a diploma or a history of incarceration. However, almost all of Goodwill’s numerous programs and services are available to the general public free-of-charge, thanks to the generosity of Goodwill’s shoppers and donors. To access Goodwill Career Solutions services, call (615) 742-4151 or browse the training menu below.

EDUCATION

Goodwill’s Career Solutions Centers provide both in-person and virtual classes for Tennesseans who need to acquire skills that will help them find and maintain rewarding employment. Most of these classes can be completed in as few as one or two hours, and virtual classes can be accessed from home or using computers at our centers.

TRAINING

Goodwill offers programs that help individuals gain advanced skills and certifications needed to enter a variety of occupations. These programs provide training in fields such as call center, custodial, construction, forklift, information technology and social media. Participants’ time commitment varies by program.

EMPLOYMENT

Career Coaches help job-seekers assess their strengths, refine their goals and acquire skills needed to find meaningful work and launch careers. Many clients move into rewarding jobs with Goodwill, but most find work with other employers. Services include one-on-one coaching, job placement assistance and referrals.
