The Caring Place and Goodwill Industries Partner For Job Fair

The Caring Place and Goodwill Industries

The Caring Place in Georgetown, Texas and Goodwill Industries, invite the community to the 2ndAnnual TCP-Goodwill Job Fair at The Caring Place Community Rooms at 2001 Railroad Ave., on Wednesday, May 23, 2017, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Free to the public, attendees will have the opportunity to speak directly with representatives from a dozen companies regarding employment.

Recognizing the opportunity to help the community beyond their basic human needs, The Caring Place partnered with Goodwill in 2017 to offer a place where companies could meet with people in the job market.  Due to the positive feedback, the two non-profits have elected to team up once again to help share opportunities with community job seekers.

Industries represented at the job fair will include healthcare, package shipping, facilities services, job placement, food services, day jobs, warehouse workers, retail sales and more.

 “This is a great opportunity for employers and job seekers to come together,” said Kerstin Cochran, Client Services Resource Coordinator. “We were pleased by the success of the event last year and are excited to partner with Goodwill on this project again.”
