According to WalletHub, Orlando is #53 out of 182 on a list of best cities to find jobs. While the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity has reported job growth for the eighth consecutive month, thousands of Central Floridians are still unemployed – and the COVID-19 pandemic has made the situation worse for many local residents. There are still many people – who want to work – but who are struggling to land a new opportunity that allows them to provide for themselves and their families.
That’s one major reason why Goodwill Industries of Central Florida’s job connection services are more important than ever before.
Every month, the virtual job connection team hosts a free webinar each Friday; the topic rotates, focusing on a different aspect of the job search, such as the interview, polishing your resume to standout and knowing if the job opening is the right fit.
The upcoming February 12th webinar is free and starts at 11:30am, but interested participants must register beforehand. Interested participants must register in advance by visiting Goodwill’s Zoom registration page.
There are also webinar sessions set up for February 19th and 26th as well. Goodwill’s employment specialists are working virtually with job seekers to update resumes, practice for interviews and apply for openings online. Upcoming free webinars can be found on Goodwill’s website. Anyone in need of assistance can email JobConnection@GoodwillCFL.org or call (407) 235-1541.
