    Goodwill Workforce Connection Centers were opened in Chicagoland as a response to the downturn in the economy that has left so many in our community without work, many for the first time in years.  For those looking for work the process is often overwhelming and they aren’t sure where to start.

    The centers bridge the gap between the job seeker and local companies.  We offer job search assistance free of charge and no appointment is necessary.  We provide an array of services, including resume assistance, workshops on interviewing, access to computers and other technology, job boards and a regular schedule of employer recruitment sessions.

    Anyone over 17 1/2 years old can use the Center services FREE of charge to find work. The revenue generated from sales of donations in our Goodwill Store & Donation Centers help fund these services.
