Goodwill hosted a job fair Friday morning at 10:30 a.m., giving unemployed citizens of Greenwood new job opportunities. According to CDS Team Leader Idaly Partridge, participants were able to interact with various area businesses, ranging from in-home health care, nursing homes, hospice, construction, and military opportunities. There was also information on potential jobs within Goodwill, with training information for the company available.
The ultimate goal of the event is to give back to the community that has welcomed Goodwill with open arms, Partridge explained. For individuals that were unable to attend the Goodwill Job Fair, the Goodwill Job Connection is open Monday-Thursday, from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
“We want to do these often for Greenwood because they have welcomed us so well,” Partridge said. “We want to make sure we are doing our best to help residents in Greenwood go back to work.”
