Expanded Rowan Career Connections Center Reopens Jan. 20

Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina has completed extensive renovations on its Rowan County Career Connections Center, and is holding a grand reopening celebration and ribbon-cutting on Wednesday January 20.  The public is also invited to an open house and tour which will showcase services, programs and facilities available at the Center, including:

  • New training space

The Career Connections Center, located at 1923 South Main Street in Salisbury, helps people find employment and also offers comprehensive resources to employers.

Veterans Intake & Employment Workshop (“V.I.E.W.”)

The newly renovated Rowan Career Connections Center in Salisbury will accommodate a full schedule of workshops for veterans.  The workshops, presented in partnership with Veterans Affairs, will accommodate veterans who are enrolled in the Compensated Work Therapy Program (CWT).  Our mission in conducting these workshops is to find more efficient ways of introducing veterans to community services, and allow them to enhance their personal growth and employment goals.  The workshop will be held on the first and second Fridays of each month.  The VA Medical Center (VAMC) will bring in a different group of community partners for each session.  Once those partners have presented and the veteran decides he or she can benefit from the programs, then the remaining time is allotted for enrollment.

Job Fairs
The Goodwill Rowan County Career Connections Center will host a job fair during the third week of each month.  Participating employers will include:

  • Automation Personnel Services
  • Mancan Staffing
  • Salisbury Rowan Community Action Agency
  • Staff Masters
  • Onin Staffing
  • Insource Performance Solutions
  • Manpower2Horsepower, and
  • The Resource – Mocksville
