Our employment, training and education programs focus on each individual's needs and abilities, with the goal of helping them achieve success in landing a new job.
External Situational Assessment
Goodwill Employment Training Specialists (ETS) visit each job site to evaluate the worker's skills, work-related behaviors, and productivity.
Goodwill helps participants choose their most sensible occupations by assessing the worker's interests and abilities. Using computers, newspapers and other employment resources, job candidates learn to identify all the career opportunities available.
For our deaf or hard-of-hearing participants, we provide full accessibility via the communication methods most comfortable to them. American Sign Language, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Cambodian, and Tagalog are our specialty.
