Goodwill Southeast Georgia will offer two "New Year, Better Me" workshops in January to help job hunters kick start their search and connect them with opportunities in the area.
Both are next week.
Workshops will be Jan. 24 Moses Jackson Community Center at 1410 Richards St. in Savannah, and Jan. 25 at the Goodwill on Sallie Mood Drive in Savannah.
These intensive, four-hour sessions will cover everything from personal skill assessment to mock interviews and include a take-home success pack to getting on the right path. Goodwill has also partnered with local businesses to arrange interview sign ups during the event.
Goodwill is launching other free programs this year, including the Financial Literacy initiative developed with Wells Fargo to teach budgeting and credit management.
"Wells Fargo knows that talking to people about money, saving and the purpose of a budget is invaluable" said Amy Singh, Wells Fargo VP program manager. "We are very fortunate to work with Goodwill to offer free in-person financial education on a variety of topics. All are designed to help individuals learn more about resources and options to meet their financial goals."
Additionally, Goodwill offer classes for computer skills.
"We are excited to be starting six-week class teaching computer basics this month" said Meredith Champagne, Workforce Services director. "Participants will have the opportunity to learn from the ground up so they can become comfortable navigating job searches, emails, building resumes and much more."
