Job Seeker Workshops

Goodwill provides weekly and monthly programs and job seeker workshops. Our Workshops are designed to give job seekers the skills necessary to succeed in a highly competitive job market. These programs and workshops are free and open to the public. We do ask that job seekers register before hand, because space is limited. Job seeker workshops, classes, and programs are held at the Roanoke Jobs Campus, Madison Heights Jobs Center, Charlottesville Workforce Center, and Harrisonburg Workforce Center.
