Goodwill Job Connections add Saturday hours for job-seekers

In an effort to provide greater convenience, five of the eight Job ConnectionSM career service centers operated by Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the CSRA now will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays starting Jan. 14. These weekend hours are in addition to each of the Job Connections’ Monday-Friday office hours, and will provide extended service opportunities for individuals who might be unable to visit during a weekday.

Job Connection locations adding these Saturday service hours are:

  • The Augusta Job Connection, 3179 Washington Road, at Fury’s Ferry Road;
  • The Aiken Job Connection, 1015 Pine Log Road;
  • The Lake Oconee Job Connection, 1030 Lake Oconee Parkway;
  • The Warner Robins Job Connection, 2209 Moody Road; and,
  • The new Milledgeville Job Connection, 2596 North Columbia St., opening in January 2017.

The South Augusta Job Connection and Station of Hope at 3120 Peach Orchard Road, the Macon Helms Career Center and Station of Hope at 240 Broadway, and the Dublin Job Connection at 2005 Veterans Boulevard will maintain their current Monday-Friday schedules.

“These expanded hours are designed to provide greater flexibility to visitors who would like better opportunities but in some cases are unable to visit the Job Connection during the week because they already are employed,” said Diane Wall, Goodwill’s Senior Director of Employment and Business Services. “We believe our generous donors and shoppers will see the value of the investment in these additional weekend hours to provide expanded career assistance options.” 

Goodwill’s Job Connection proudly serves nearly 25,000 individuals seeking career services each year and helps secure job placements for more than 5,000 men and women. A multi-region capital campaign designed to serve additional individuals through Helms College programs currently is in the planning stages.
