Résumés at the ready for upcoming job fair

October 8, 2013 by  

Goodwill Industries is hosting a job fair this coming weekend, offering a good example of why Plymouth residents looking for a job should always keep plenty of résumés on hand.

The Canton Goodwill Store will be holding the event and job openings that need to be filled are in the Canton, Commerce, and Dearborn stores. These include retail associates, commercial licensed drivers, material handlers, and merchandise processors.

Applicants for Goodwill jobs are asked to bring a current résumé and to be prepared to speak with Goodwill HR personnel who may conduct pre-screening interviews. Although business cards are not being requested, having a few on hand is always a good idea.

Qualifications needed for the job openings at Goodwill include a high school diploma or its equivalent. Applications will be available on-site but can also be obtained in advance online at the ‘Careers’ section of Goodwill Detroit’s website so that job seekers can fill them out at home, in what is likely to be a less stressful environment. In addition to the job openings, job hunters may also benefit from networking with other applicants and employers on the day.

Being prepared should be every job seekers motto, and the wise employment hunter need not be caught unaware. Local printing companies can quickly supply both copies of a résumés and digital business cards.

The job fair will be held this Friday, October 11 and Goodwill staff will collect applications from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm.
