Why is Job Readiness Important?

In today’s working world, job readiness is essential. Candidates who are well-prepared for the workplace are more confident and equipped to succeed. Employers also strive to find skilled workers who have the training and skills needed to perform their jobs correctly and help the organization reach its goals. But unfortunately, many people in our local communities who want and need work face multiple barriers to employment. Providing job readiness training is one way to help people overcome these barriers to employment, and Ohio Valley Goodwill is on a mission to do just that.

Goodwill’s Cycle of Success

At Ohio Valley Goodwill, we believe that there’s much more to having a job than making money. Meaningful employment helps people gain confidence, self-sufficiency, and a greater sense of purpose. That’s why we’re committed to helping people in our community achieve employment success every day.

For more than 100 years, Ohio Valley Goodwill has provided an array of vocational services including skills training, job placement, coaching support, worksite support, and other related services for individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans. We invite you to read about some of the inspirational personal Success Stories from individuals who received support from Ohio Valley Goodwill’s programs and services.
