Goodwill Career Solutions in Union City offers free job services and training to those who are looking for work. What you may not know is that we also partner with local employers to connect them with qualified job candidates. We can also host job fairs for businesses, and we will even promote them for you.
It is Goodwill's mission to assist and place people into jobs that will be the best fit for both employer and employee, ultimately supporting a company with fulfilling their needs while giving someone a chance to get back on their feet and into the workforce. Career Solutions already has a wealth of potential employees who are trained, pre-screened and ready for work. When employers partner with Career Solutions, they not only open the door to finding more qualified candidates for open positions, but they also support their community by helping many of their neighbors return to or re-enter the workforce. It's good business for employers, for our clients and our community.
In 2014, our 27 Goodwill Career Solutions centers assisted more than 28,159 clients, of which 9,558 landed jobs. The center in Union City assisted 1,888 people last year, placing 676 of those in jobs. There are more than 1,700 employers actively hiring Goodwill clients, and 89 percent of our clients who find jobs do so with employers other than Goodwill.
Goodwill is able to offers these free services thanks to the generosity of our donors and shoppers. We have 34 stores and more than 80 Donation Express Centers located throughout Middle and West Tennessee. For a location nearest you, visit www.giveit2goodwill.org.
