Every 33 seconds of each business day, someone earns a job with the help of Goodwill. But, how do they get from job seeker to employed professional?
Often, the first step to finding a job is understanding your skills, interests and abilities. At Horizon Goodwill Industries, we have specialists who work with you to understand your prior experience as well as your job and career goals. Once we know your strengths, we can begin thinking about the career track that’s right for you. You can meet with a specialist face-to-face or visit our online portal for learning, accessing resources and getting advice from virtual career mentors, GoodProspects.
Together, we’ll design a plan that brings your dreams to life. Our career services include training for jobs in retail sales, manufacturing, administrative services and more. We work closely with local businesses to know where jobs are growing and what skills are needed to fill them. Then, we tailor our training to make sure you develop the skills employers are looking for.
Here’s what you should expect from our job placement services. When you visit our career centers, our job specialists will help you:
- Learn the secrets of networking
- Build a professional resume
- Practice for a job interview
- Find out what employers expect from you
- Learn how to dress for success
When you visit our virtual community, GoodProspects, you can:
- Access blogs on Career Advice

- Get tips and resource information from Mentors, our industry experts

We understand many people need income now, and we can help you earn a paycheck while you’re getting ready for your next job. Horizon Goodwill offers opportunities to work in temporary jobs, like our retail locations or business or supply chain solutions. If you already have a job but are looking to advance your career, we’re here to help. Our Resource Centers offer a no-cost opportunity to explore jobs in your area, get to know employers and apply for available positions. We offer virtual career fairs and other opportunities to find a job from home. To stay up-to-date on these opportunities, subscribe to our e-newsletter and indicated “Growing Your Career” as your interest.
Horizon Goodwill recognizes that simply providing training and a job is not enough to solve the challenges that keep people from finding and keeping good jobs. Our staff can support your personal or family needs to assure your children are secure and thriving so you can focus on work. We can help you find childcare options, transportation, counseling services and more. And, if we don’t provide the service you need, we’ll connect you with other organizations that do.
