Quest Academy Mock Interview Day May 26th, 2017
Volunteers are needed to conduct mock interviews with our Quest Academy clients. The Quest Academy provides young adults in the urban core with opportunities to discover career options. This group may not have had the benefit of good work ethics or job skills modeled in their homes. Your honest feedback will provide us with information necessary to appropriately coach candidates in the identified areas requiring improvement.

Please arrive 10 minutes early to learn more about the Quest Academy. Goodwill will provide you with interview questions, an interview score grid, and refreshments. Each interview should last approximately 40 minutes. Please use as many questions as possible in the time allowed.

Shifts:
10:15 am
11:30 pm
1:30 pm


Your time supports a GOOD cause. 90 cents of every dollar spent supports LOCAL programs and services that empower job seekers with barriers to employment.

In Support of Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas (Goodwill) empowers people to discover their potential and adapt for the future through the power of work. We help job seekers throughout the entire employment continuum; we support individuals in engaging the workforce, retaining work, gaining skills, and advancing their careers. In 2020, we served 12,065 individuals and placed 601 people into new employment.


Goodwill provides workforce development services, job training, and employment in 82 counties across western Missouri and eastern Kansas, focusing our programs in the following counties: Jackson, Clay, Platte, Wyandotte, and Johnson. We support individuals with different abilities and disadvantaging conditions, such as persons with physical challenges or cognitive disorders, limited education and work history, criminal backgrounds, underemployment or unemployment, or a situational barrier such as lack of transportation or housing.


We believe every person deserves the opportunity to work. Employment is more than a paycheck. It is independence, agency, dignity, and equality. Jobs empower people to support themselves and their loved ones, pursue life goals, and participate in their communities. 


Goodwill impacts lives through three strategies customized to meet participants’ unique needs:


● Our donated goods retail model provides employment, career planning, and upskilling through the recycling and reselling of material donations in our stores. 

● Our commercial and government contracts offer case management and employment for individuals with a different ability. 

● Our employment services and workforce development programs provide job training, job coaching, career placement, and ongoing retention supports for people with severe barriers to employment.


Over our 127 years, we have served over 630,000 people, provided over 23,017,000 services and secured over 203,000 jobs.
