Goodwill offers additional services to help prepare for a job. To receive these services, you must already be enrolled in a Goodwill Program.
One way Goodwill helps people find work is by placing them in a job. We match individuals with a job based on their interests and abilities. Individuals choose the job they would like to apply for. Then, Goodwill coordinates an interview with the appropriate employer.
Jobs types may include clerical, food service, general labor, hospitality, janitorial, manufacturing, retail, or security.
Supported Employment Services

Sometimes people need some extra help at their job. Goodwill also provides support that will help individuals keep their jobs.
Transitional Employment Services
