Goodwill is at it again helping folks in Michiana find jobs. Wednesday Goodwill hosted a job fair with about 14 companies ready to hire at their Community Career Center.
The fair ran from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and was completely free to the public. More than 150 people showed up within the first hour.
When attending events like this they ask that folks dress appropriately and bring a resume. They also say this is a great time for people who are looking for jobs as the holiday season is quickly approaching.
“I know that Lowe’s is here hiring, Walmart is here hiring, people are gearing up for that Christmas season so they need that extra help,” says Maria Stancati a Business Services Representative.
“Part time is better than no time. Seasonal is better than no job. A seasonal job can lead into a full time employment coming up in February, January. If you are a good worker they will keep you".
Now, if you missed this job fair they say they will have another one come February. In the meantime, if you need help finding a job, they will work with you mock interviews, resumes, job searching and more at their career center.
