STATEWIDE -- Goodwill of Central Arizona is hosting a "Hiring Fest" on Wednesday, May 7 at various locations and Goodwill Career Centers located throughout the Valley, Prescott and Yuma.

"Last year's event, formerly called the Job Fair Palooza, was a huge success," Goodwill's director of business solutions Joe Tuerff said. "This year, we're changing the event slightly to showcase a more efficient and immediate method of connecting local hiring companies to job seekers. Companies that have immediate hiring needs will be on-site. Job seekers will have an opportunity to meet face to face, interview, and network with recruiters of many Valley companies."

The event is a part of Goodwill Industries Week, which is a time for local Goodwill agencies to celebrate their successes and educate people about the nonprofit's mission of helping people find and keep good jobs.

Companies such as Banner Staffing, Revana, Charles Schwab, ResCare Homecare, Goodwill Commercial Maintenance and Retail, McDonald's, Vonage, and Massage Envy will be participating.

The Goodwill Hiring Fest will take place at 19 Goodwill Career Center locations and will have approximately 700 positions available. Each location is hosting a single company.

Job seekers are encouraged to arrive early, bring resumes, dress professionally and be prepared to talk to hiring managers.
