  • Skills-based Assessments: Indeed and Goodwill will pilot ways to use Indeed’s online Assessments tool to help job seekers better demonstrate their skills to find the right job.
  • Employer Hiring Events: Indeed and Goodwill partner with employers who have immediate hiring needs to host hiring events at Goodwill locations using Indeed’s event management tools, providing opportunity for on-the-spot job offers
  • Job Seeker Support: Goodwill job seekers will receive tailored resources to help them navigate online job search. Initial pilots include an Indeed portal designed for Goodwill and training on how to build an online resume and job search on Indeed.
