Job Training, Employment Skills, and Literacy Education

Job training, employment skills, and literacy comprehension are essential for anyone who is searching for work in the ever more competitive job market, especially in the Fredericksburg region.

Having basic reading, computer skills, keyboarding skills, resume and cover letter design and internet job search skills are critical when searching for a good job. A professional looking resume and cover letter can make a big difference in getting that all important interview.

All of these job skills, tools and access to the job market are taken for granted if you already possess them. But, for someone who does not have these skills, it can be devastating. That’s where Goodwill comes in to help people who need one or all of these skills to find a good job in our community. Our Job Help Centers provide free assistance and training for all of these skills. Our trained employment specialists work one on one with clients to get them to quickly master needed skills and find their job. Goodwill’s on-the-job training programs are also very helpful to our clients.
