Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina will host its third annual Career Fashion Show and Resource Fair on Friday, March 10, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., at Davidson County Community College.
“We hold this event for two reasons,” said Jaymie Eichorn, Goodwill Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “We want to demonstrate that, even with a small budget, people can purchase professional clothing for interviews and days on-the-job at Goodwill retail stores.
