At Goodwill it is our mission to help individuals prepare for, find and retain employment in the communities we serve.  This mission is the driving force behind our business/employer services to help your company find qualified employees — entry-level to management positions — through customized recruitment, applicant screening and skills assessments and more.


If you are in search of qualified employees, our recruitment services can alleviate daily pressures by performing as an extension of your business — designed to help save you time and money involved in meeting your staffing needs. Services include:

  • Create and manage job board posting to more than 100 job boards
  • Ability to mine resumes from major national job boards
  • Resume and applicant screening to ensure only qualified candidates are received
  • Conducting initial interviews
  • On-site recruitment assistance
  • Customized recruitment events
  • View current job searches for local businesses/employers


Applicant Screening
Working closely with our clients we will determine the key criteria for the position and screen all applicants through the initial interview process.  This ensures only the most qualified candidates that meet your requirements are presented to your company.


Pre-employment Testing
To eliminate any second-guessing of your hiring decisions, we provide a package of services to test and evaluate almost any occupation – ensuring your next hire has all the qualifications and soft skills you need.  In addition, we offer background checks, drug screening and reference checks.   For more information, contact Goodwill’s Business/Employer Services team at 1-800-989-8428.


“In our search for talent, Goodwill Industries of Akron is a great resource for H&S Tool.  Working with Goodwill’s Business/Employer Services team is nothing short of a pleasure in the way the team  effectively searches for applicants to fill our open positions.  The services provided are greatly appreciated.”
