NORTH GEORGIA – In the wake of New Year’s resolutions local job seekers looking for a fresh start can visit Goodwill of North Georgia career centers in preparation for the organization’s “New Year. New Job.” hiring event
. An annual resource and job fair scheduled for January 13 at 10 a.m. New Year. New Job. will take place at all 11 of Goodwill of North Georgia’s career centers. Hiring employers from community businesses will be on-site to accept applications and conduct interviews with applicants.
Attendees looking to prepare for New Year. New Job. can get free assistance at Goodwill’s career centers
on topics from building a résumé to mock interview preparation. Many of these resources will soon be available to job seekers from the comfort of their living rooms. This spring Goodwill of North Georgia plans to launch Career Connector, an online extension of its job readiness resources.
“While our career centers offer tremendous assistance for our job seekers, we will enrich our menu of services next year with virtual services including a wonderful mix of resources, job listings and tools,” says Goodwill’s Vice President of Career Services Cheryl Cornett. “We anticipate meeting many new job seekers online who may not be aware of Goodwill’s career services. The virtual world is our new frontier.”
By creating an online profile on Career Connector job seekers will unlock résumé building tools, job matching with local job openings, video tutorials and more. These online resources will assist the nonprofit in reaching a record number of people. The website will be accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and it will help the organization better connect with those who use its services.
An official launch date for Career Connector is coming soon. In the interim job seekers can continue to make good on their 2016 resolutions at Goodwill’s brick-and-mortar facilities for hands-on assistance, workshops and local events
