Jobs and Careers
Often, the first step to finding a job is understanding your skills, interests and abilities. And once you have an understanding of your strengths, you can begin thinking about the career track that’s best for you. We have specialists who work with you to understand your prior experience as well as your job and career goals.
You can meet with a specialist face-to-face at a Goodwill® near you, or visit our virtual community online – GoodProspectsSM. Together, we’ll design a plan to bring your dreams to life, while connecting you with other community resources, like childcare, reliable transportation, and financial planning.
Every 38 seconds of each business day, someone earns a job with Goodwill’s help.
Every eight seconds, another person accesses Goodwill opportunities to build careers and strong families. You can be next!

Skills You Will Learn Goodwills offer training for jobs in healthcare, IT, retail sales and management, food services, banking, manufacturing and more. Many will offer office and computer skills training. You can also use the computers at Goodwill to register for GoodProspects.
We work closely with local business to know where jobs are growing and what skills are needed to fill them. Then, we tailor our training to make sure that you develop the skills that employers want.
Working and Learning We know that, many times, people in our training programs need income now — and we can help you earn a paycheck while you’re getting ready for your next job. Many Goodwills offer opportunities to work in temporary jobs, such as our retail stores or in our business or government contract work sites
Advancing Your Career If you already have a job, but are looking to advance your career and find your next position, we’re here to help. Many Goodwills offer career fairs throughout the year, giving you a no-cost opportunity to explore jobs in your area, get to know employers and apply for open positions.
In May 2013, Goodwill offers its second virtual career fair, giving job seekers around the country the chance to participate from home. You can stay up-to-date about future opportunities like this by subscribing to our e-newsletter and indicating “Growing Your Career” as an interest.
Other Ways We Help You Sometimes personal and family needs, or even the difficulties of every day life, can keep people from finding and keeping good jobs. At Goodwill, we have professional staff available to assist you in addressing your personal or family needs.
We can help you find childcare options, reliable transportation or provide access to counseling services, if needed. And if Goodwill doesn’t provide the service, we can locate other community organizations that do.
