Veterans Day 2022

The men and women of our armed services dedicate themselves to ensuring we can continue to live as we do. To say that what they do is heroic is an understatement. As we approach Veteran’s Day, we decided to take a look at some facts and figures regarding our veterans.

My First Job: Where You Started Isn’t Where You’ll Always Wind Up Going

My first jobs were very different from where my career path took me - from Retail to Art to Marketing. I wondered if this unexpected trajectory might be the same as my colleagues at Goodwill. So, I asked them! Here's what they said. 

The History of Memorial Day

Our Workforce Development blogger, Steve Allan, explains the significance of Memorial Day and why we observe the holiday with a three-day weekend.

Hire a Veteran!

The respect and gratitude we show these brave men and women is something that happens on a 24/7/365 basis. However, we do set aside one day a year to specifically recognize these American heroes – Veterans Day.

Who Works on Christmas?

As you head over the river and through the woods this holiday season you are likely enjoying a day or two off from work (except when you check your e-mail). However, thousands of Washingtonians are still grinding away so that the rest of us can enjoy time with our families.

Veterans Day: Their Willing Sacrifice

With military service there are certain unique sacrifices that come along with the honor of fighting for one’s country. One of the most prevalent being the absence of what would be considered a normal family life.

A Moment to Remember

Memorial Day weekend is much more than the kick off to summer. We would like to take a minute to observe the true meaning of this important holiday.

This weekend, as you enjoy the cook-outs, pool openings, and beach-bound traffic take a moment to reflect on why you’re off this Monday. Memorial Day is a day to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and freedoms.
