Meet Keith

By Contract Services, Success Stories, Workforce Development

Keith has been a familiar face at Goodwill Industries for the last five years. In 2013, he started working with Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) and selected Goodwill Industries of Northwest Ohio as his vendor to receive vocational services through the Workforce Development program. The first step for Keith was to complete a Community Based Assessment. After he completed the assessment, he started to work with a professional job developer to learn Job Seeking Skills Training and Job Development. In July of 2014, he attended an interview with the CEO of Goodwill and was hired at Goodwill as a part-time building janitor. Since then, Keith has increased his hours and at times works full-time as needed. Keith indicates that “he likes the Goodwill staff and the experience of working at Goodwill Industries Northwest Ohio”. When speaking with his supervisor, he states that Keith is “joyful, courteous, and does his job quietly with no complaints is always willing to help out in the Contracts Division and work various contracts including festivals.” Congratulations to Keith for celebrating 5 years of employment with Goodwill!
