Goodwill Job Connection clients share successes

On her first visit to Job Connection, W.O. spent two hours completing one online job application for a new restaurant opening soon in the Tulsa area. Just 10 days later, she called Job Connection to say that she had been hired and was currently in training for the position she had applied for at that restaurant.

The next day, W.O. brought a friend to Job Connection to begin her own job search. She also informed Job Connection staff that the restaurant was still taking applications and asked that it be posted on our Job Board for other job seekers.

K.C. visited Goodwill Job Connection in November. This was her first visit and she wanted to get help with a resume and review job leads. She returned to continue her job search on 3 more occasions over the next 2 weeks. On her fourth visit, she brought a friend, D.D., who was also looking for employment.

Just 12 days after her fourth visit and her friend’s first visit to Job Connection, the same company hired both K.C. and her friend, D.D., at the same time. Both are working full-time with health benefits and overtime options.
