Title: Impact of Goodwill on the Working Community
Local professionals looking for jobs have a valuable resource — the Professional Center. The center, operated by Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina, offers free resources and personalized career assistance in a variety of areas, including networking skills, interviewing strategies, salary negotiations, social media and image consulting services.
The center also offers resource fairs featuring different experts, online training videos at www.goodwillprofessionalcenter.org, and they encourage employers to interview job candidates at the center. Funding for the center’s programs comes from the sale of donated items in Goodwill’s retail stores
As Director, Randy launched The Professional Center by Goodwill of Northwest NC in 2012. This is the first program of its type for any Goodwill. His experiences in career coaching, executive recruiting, and business ownership, as a hiring manager and as a job seeker have afforded him the opportunity to view the hiring process from all angles.
He developed and provided on-air talent for the Internet’s first daily live television program targeted toward job hunters. He shares job search tips through a bi-weekly newspaper column; regular appearances on television, radio; and frequent public speaking appearances.
He will speak to us about this service of Goodwill and other programs and support they offer.
