      Hello I have attempted to obtain a career in the Goodwill company. Could you tell me some ways to stand out or anyone I could converse with to better my chances? The jobs I apply for are much different than my experiences in the workforce. I want a chance to have a job that is more fulling and challenging and more open.The job is College Impact Facilitator. Any advise would be nice.

        Hi Shelby,

        Can you say at which Goodwill agency you’re applying? The best thing to do, if you haven’t already, would be to find the person who would supervise the position and send them a statement of your interest and why you think you would be a good fit.
