Finding work with Goodwill's help

If you've ever donated to Goodwill, or even just browsed for a pair of jeans, you've really only seen half the story.

As one of the area's largest non-profits, Goodwill helps thousands of people find work every year, both within the organization and with for-profit companies.  

And for those looking for work, Goodwill offers a free service to the public at its Workforce Connection Centers.

The centers are available to jobseekers of all ages at four locations around the area.  People can attend job interview workshops, get help drafting their resumes, use computers to browse the Internet for jobs, and meet with potential employers one-on-one.

So far this year, more than 1,700 people have found work using the Workforce Connection Centers.
