Goodwill Hosts Job Fair to give Community Employment Opportunities

JACKSON, Tenn. - Goodwill Industries on South Highland Avenue hosted a job fair for the community.

As the nation-wide labor shortage continues, it can be especially hard for people without jobs during the holidays.

Lieutenant Donal Carroll from the Tennessee Department of Corrections came to the job fair as a recruiter.

“Today I am at this job fair. I try to catch all of them because we’re short staffed right now, and we would like to hire more staff to be fully staffed and to help operate safe and secure prisons at this time.”

Vocational rehabilitation support coordinator Yolanda Whiteside shares how this fair can help people in the community find jobs.

“I love coming to this job fair because it’s at a good location of Goodwill, and a lot of different people from a lot of different backgrounds are able to come and just meet employers.”

Whiteside believes events like this job fair are especially important now.

“With the shortage, it just lets people know that there are still places that are hiring here and there are great opportunities in the community of Jackson.”

Carroll and Whiteside want to encourage people in the community to take advantage of resources, such as this job fair, to find employment.
