Goodwill Job Readiness & Life Skills Training
Participants entering our programs work with workforce development professionals to identify their experiences and aspirations, and develop an individual career plan designed to enhance personal and professional growth.

Job Readiness training helps participants understand workplace etiquette and employer expectations. Participants also learn how to conduct an effective job search and develop the skills required in their respective career fields.

Life skills training sessions are provided to help our participants maintain a positive outlook and build successful workplace relationships. Studies reveal that companies are more willing to hire and train employees who understand basic concepts such as time management, dependability, problem-solving and customer service.

Through the use of field-tested resources participants can develop the behavior, life management and interpersonal skills that enable them to become confident and productive members of their community.
