New Job Connection Opens in Anderson
Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina will open a brand-new Goodwill Job Connection during a Grand Reopening celebration on March 29th at its existing and newly remodeled store at 2901-A South Main Street in Anderson.
Goodwill Job Connections provide free assistance to help job seekers connect with potential employers and find employment. Services include access to resources like computers and the internet, resume assistance, and job leads and referrals. Job seekers may also be referred to one of Goodwill’s training programs, where they can learn skills needed for a career in fields such as Retail, Manufacturing, or as a Certified Nurse Aide.
Goodwill Job Connections can also serve as a resource for employers, connecting employers with pre-screened applicants, providing space for on-site interviewing, or organizing and conducting Job Fairs to help fill open positions. All services are free.
This will be Goodwill’s 27th Job Connection in the Upstate and Midlands of South Carolina. It joins two additional Job Connections in Anderson County at 3019 N. Main Street in Anderson and 3570 Highway 153 in Powdersville.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Job Connection will take place at 8:00 am on Wednesday, March 29th. After closing Monday and Tuesday to complete the final details of the remodel and refresh, the store will open at 9:00, celebrating with 25% off most items in the store all day on March 29th.
Goodwill Industries of Upstate/Midlands South Carolina helps people become independent through education and training leading to employment. Last year, Goodwill placed 11,149 people into employment through its job training programs and Goodwill Job Connection services.
