Goodwill Offers Class for Job Seekers

MACHESNEY PARK (WIFR) -- You know it's important to dress professionally for an interview and now local organization is helping us do that.

The Goodwill held its "Be Good to Yourself" Workshop on Monday in Machesney Park. The program offers people looking for a job a free hair cut and make up advice. They even can get a personal shopper to pick out work clothes. Nicole Inman, Job Placement Specialist at Goodwill, say the event prepares job seekers for employment opportunities by boosting their self-esteem and they are getting great feedback.

"Nice new hair cut, fresh image and just really thankful for getting the opportunity. One woman's out of the floor shopping for her outfit and she said she's having a lot of fun its almost like a mini spa day for her. So to pamper your self this is something they don't get to do," Inman said.

Participants even had a chance to relax with a free massage.
