PHOENIX -- Valley residents looking for work will want to visit a Goodwill career center on Tuesday, May 7.

Goodwill of Central Arizona will be hosting a Job Fair Palooza at all 15 of their career center locations in the Valley and Yuma from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event will be a part of Goodwill Industries Week, which is a time when Goodwill agencies educate people about the organization’s mission of helping people find and keep work.

Companies taking part in the Job Fair Palooza include Lowe’s, Starbucks, Safeway, Charles Schwab, Wells Fargo, Legacy HomeCare, and Mesa Public Schools.

“Last year’s Job Fair Palooza was a huge success,” said Richmond Vincent, VP of Workforce Development at Goodwill. “We had over 3,100 job seekers visit our career centers throughout Central Arizona and many people found employment. The model worked well because job seekers were able to go to a career center near them and meet with employers who had immediate hiring needs.”

Those looking for a job are encouraged to arrive early, bring a resume, dress professionally, and be prepared to speak with hiring managers.
