Goodwill hosted a public job fair Tuesday morning featuring 13 different employers.
Job candidates could drop off resumes for everything from retail to health care.
Organizers say Goodwill does nearly four of these events per year.
That’s all in an effort to build independence within the community.
“For somebody to have a job, and to have the ability to connect with an employer who can give them a job. And they can work, earn a paycheck, support their family, contribute to their community – there’s a lot of pride, dignity, and self-respect that comes from being able to have a job,” said Kelly Sandridge, of Goodwill Industries of the Valleys.
Anyone who missed Tuesday’s job fair can still take advantage of Goodwill’s training services here.
