Employment Services


Goodwill Employment Services helps individuals overcome barriers by assisting them in finding work in local communities. Part of our mission at Goodwill is to train and place local residents in jobs throughout the Tri-State area. In 2016, our Employment Specialists placed 72 individuals into jobs; 60 were placed within communities we serve and 12 were placed internally at Goodwill. 292 total individuals were served through our programs and 8,372 Job Readiness Training Sessions took place.

Our Employment Services division offers the following programs:

  • Work Adjustment Training – A community-based or facility-based program designed to reorient individuals into a work environment who have never been employed or have been out of work for a period of time.
  • Work Skills Assessment – This program evaluates individuals’ workplace capabilities, while identifying possible employment strengths.
  • Job Readiness – Individuals are prepared for all phases of employment, which include, but are not limited to, resume building, interviewing skills and job retention.
  • Job Coaching – Job coaches provide on-the-job assistance and training with employees to support their development of long-term skills necessary to maintain employment and thrive in a new career.

The program works individually with persons referred through the West Virginia Division of Rehabilitation Services, the Kentucky Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, the Ohio Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation, Worker’s Compensation, and private rehabilitation companies to assist individuals in their job search.
