I am very happy with my experience with the programs that are offered at the Goodwill, it has given me the opportunity to advance myself in my career, which I thought at one point I was never going be given the chance to exceed my career. I have bought along with me my daughter and my niece to share the experience as well. We all are taking the Medical Front Office Assistance classes.

It would be great if they could add more classes to the ones they have now, I would also like to take classes for Ultrasound Technician and keep the prices to where almost anyone can afford them. As well as making a seperate building just for us!

As a recently released state prison inmate I find it extremely difficult to find a full-time job. The economy is shrinking and so many companies are very concerned about security and background checks. The Goodwill Job Help Center has been a blessing in many ways. The tools for resume building, job leads and web sites have been very helpful, but the greatest help for me has been through the steady, supportive, positive attitude shown by the caring staff. They are a fine group of people and I'm proud to be associated with them. I recommend the Goodwill Job Help Center to anyone, regardless of career level, for resources to find a job.
