Goodwill Helping Vets Get Jobs

Posted by wlpo on February 14, 2013

If you’ve served your country, you deserve a fair shot at finding a good job, but unemployment is a problem for veterans- young and old.

Goodwill of Central Illinois has help available for veterans who need to work on their job-seeking skills.  Vickie Hightower is the Veterans Service Manager with Goodwill.  She says just asking for help can be difficult for veterans.

Hightower says many of the veterans they help are older and have lost their job to layoffs.  She says Goodwill helps veterans look online for jobs.  And they try to keep their confidence up so they can continue the search.

Hightower regularly meets with veterans at the Goodwill store in Peru.  Veterans looking for job help can reach Hightower at (309) 369-8878 or stop by the Goodwill store in Peru.
