Center offers free assistance to job seekers and employers
Goodwill Industries-Suncoast, Inc. has opened a Job Connection Center inside its new Superstore at 10739 Big Bend Rd. in Riverview offering free services to job seekers and employers.
The center helps job seekers access resources and develop skills that can lead to greater employment success. Goodwill employment specialists offer guidance through the career exploration and job search process. The centers also offer computer access, assistance with cover letter and resume development, and skill builder workshops on topics such as Job Seeking Techniques, Mastering the Interview and Computer Basics.
In addition, the center is a place for job seekers or others to simply get answers regarding local services – such as where to find childcare, transportation, and training.
The center also assists local businesses by hosting recruitment events in the adjacent Community Room.
The Riverview Job Connection Center is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
