Celebrating Goodwill Industries Week! by Triad Goodwill

Goodwill Industries® Week Celebrates New Jobs and Changed Lives

May 5-11, 2013 – Times are tough, without a doubt. People in our community and throughout the nation are struggling to find and keep good jobs. Even in these tough times, though, Goodwill® has reason to celebrate. Goodwill Industries Week is May 5-11, and we are commemorating the effective work we are doing to help put people to work throughout the Central North Carolina region.

By selling your donations in stores and online, including gently used clothing and household goods, Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina, Inc.

Last year, over 13,000 people here in our local community who were struggling to find and keep good jobs benefited from your donations, an annual increase of over 30% percent.

This year GICNC will host Open House events at each of our Community Resource Centers and Career Centers located in Guilford, Alamance, Randolph and Rockingham counties. In addition, our Retail Stores will be offering some great specials for shoppers. To find your nearest Retail Store, visit TriadGoodwill.org.

A Face of Success – Kelly Benemati by Triad Goodwill

Success Story

Kelly Benemati

Meet Kelly Benemati: I was referred to Heather Schneck at the Oak Ridge Career Center in February 2013 by Lucy Wellmaker from the Women’s Resource Center in Greensboro. I met with Heather and discussed my resume. she provided career counseling and discussed job placement goals. Heather redesigned my resume, gave me some advice and referred me to a staffing partner in Greensboro who quickly took interest in my experience and background. Within a few weeks, I was offered a permanent position with a local cosmetic practice as a patient coordinator. I’m also being trained to become the office manager. Prior to this job, I had not received a permanent position since 2010.

The services obtained from Goodwill at the Oak Ridge Career Center were informative, helpful, encouraging, and Heather’s personality was very kind and uplifting. I would recommend that anyone looking for employment or resume assistance to visit the Oak Ridge Career Center.

Good luck to Kelly and we wish her many years of happiness and success!
