Goodwill Industries holding job fair in Dublin next week

Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia is holding a job fair in Dublin next week with a boot camp this week to help prepare job seekers.

The job fair will be 1-4 p.m. May 5 at the Dublin Goodwill Job Connection, 2005 Veterans Blvd., according to a news release. But job seekers can attend a boot camp 10 a.m.-noon Friday at the same location to prepare them for the job fair.

The event is timed to coincide with an annual international celebration of Goodwill Week, May 4-8, as a way of boosting employment opportunities and recognizing Goodwill’s employees, the release stated.

“During the past five years, our Goodwill served more than 83,000 individuals at our Job Connection career centers and helped more than 16,000 people find competitive employment,” local Goodwill President James Stiff said in the release. “Each of those jobs represents a member of the community experiencing the pride and dignity of a paycheck and an opportunity for a better slice of the American dream.”
