Goodwill Career Connections open house Thursday
It’s been one year since Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina opened a Career Connections Center at 1923 S. Main St.
To celebrate this milestone, the center will hold an open house for the community Thursday from 1-4 p.m.The center offers free services to help job seekers secure employment including resume and cover letter preparation assistance, interviewing skills assistance, career counseling assistance with applications and career readiness pre-testing and labs (in partnership with Rowan-Cabarrus Community College).
Employment resources available at the center include computers with high-speed internet access and interview simulators.
“Our goal has been to provide a one-stop resource for unemployed and underemployed people in the Rowan County area,” said Kerry Motley, coordinator for the center. “It’s been so rewarding helping people who truly need these services.”
Since it opened in April 2007, the center has served nearly 4,000 job seekers and placed 237 people into jobs. A Business Advisory Council made up of local community leaders has been instrumental in the center’s success.
The public is invited to the open house to see first-hand the services that are helping individuals and families in Rowan County reach financial stability.
The center is open weekdays 8 a.m.-5 p.m. No appointment is necessary, and walk-ins are welcome.
