In response to a still sluggish job market, Goodwill Industries of Greater NY and Northern NJ Inc. has opened a Career Counseling and Learning Center at its Harrison headquarters, 400 Supor Blvd., second floor.
The center is being financed with a grant from the BNY Mellon Foundation.
The facility will offer free career guidance and online computer training to individuals who are jobless, looking for a job, want to re-enter the job market or advance in their existing career.
Those seeking assistance are invited to register by calling 973-481-2300 or email CCLC@goodwillnynj.org.
William J. Forrester, president and CEO of the New York-New Jersey Goodwill, said: “We are grateful for this award from BNY Mellon Foundation and for this partnership that will support New Jersey residents.”
The center’s hours of operation will be: Monday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Wednesday, 2 to 7 p.m.; and Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Services include: online learning for typing and Office suite, resume building, interview preparation, oneon- one career counseling, career development workshops, effective job search skills, networking technique and using social media for job search.
