After serving a fifteen year sentence, James was eager to find a job and get his life back on track. He was referred to Goodwill’s job placement services by the local CORE program, and with the help of our staff, created a resume and started applying for open positions. While on his job hunt, James also took advantage of Goodwill’s Computer Training classes to increase his computer and typing skills.
After finding employment with a local restaurant, James quickly fit in, earning several recognition pins for a job well done. His employer speaks very highly of his work and he just celebrated his 1 year anniversary at Wendy’s.
Since being hired, his second achievement was moving into independent living. James was recently honored by our Goodwill with the Power of Work Award for his accomplishments.
