Goodwill Professional Center: Job assistance

Have you recently lost your job.  Furloughed? Or just ready to make a change?  Contact Randy Wooden, director of the Goodwill Professional Center.

Contact: Randy Wooden

My work phone is (336) 464-0516, option 1.  Until I return to the office, it’s being forwarded to my cell phone.

All of our services, videos, webinars, etc., are free.  Your payback is to let us know when/where you land your next job.  It’s very important, so please remember it.

Check out our website for many free videos.  They are short, topic and age-specific and require no password.

I host two virtual LinkedIn sessions each week.  Again, they’re free, but you’ll need to use a link to join.

Tuesday at 2pm is a Q & A format for intermediate to advanced users:

Thursday (10am – noon) is a deeper dive into many LinkedIn topics.  You’ll come away with a clearer understanding of LinkedIn terminology, how to use LinkedIn, and finer points as to the strategies involved.  I strongly suggest everyone attend this session at least once:

You’ll want to join our Professional Center’s LinkedIn group page.  It’s free and will provide information on upcoming events/webinars, job search tips, job openings, and other job-hunt related topics.  Here’s the link to request to join:

On Wednesdays at noon I co-host a live lunchtime discussion with my friend Teddy Burriss.  “Lunch with Randy Wooden and Teddy Burriss.”  We invite a guest or two to discuss job search-related topics.  Register and view past shows here:
