In an effort to assist people in Acadiana with rebounding from economic hardship, Goodwill Acadiana will hold their Spring Hiring Event to fill several open retail positions.

The event will take place Monday, May 24th from 9 a.m. to noon at the Corporate Office located at 2435 W. Congress St. in Lafayette.

Applications are currently being accepted online at www.goodwillacadianaorg/employment. Pre-applying for this event is highly encouraged, and candidates will have the chance to be hired on-the-spot. Walk-in applicants are also welcomed on the day of the event. Directional signs will be displayed around the building to inform participants where to enter.

“We want to provide a sense of security and relief to those in our community who have been feeling the effects of the challenging job market,” said Hope Johnson, Director of Donated Goods Retail. “Working for Goodwill is a double win. Our team feels empowered because they have stable employment, but in return, the work done by Goodwill Acadiana empowers and improves our region. We are working for the good of our community.”

Here's what a release from Goodwill says:
