Goodwill's "Call for Talent"

The "Call for Talent" will take place on Saturday, February 25, 2012 from 9:00am - 3:00pm at Ward Warehouse on the second floor at the "HIFI Coop" and at the Ward Warehouse conference rooms. Walk-ins are welcome, but those who register for the "Call for Talent" by Feb. 20 will receive priority line placement. To register online go to and click Call For Talent Volunteer.

The "Call for Talent" serves three purposes;

(1) Identify talent

(2) Match the skills to event/segment

(3) The opportunity to gain experience: It will give new talent and aspiring industry professionals experience in their field, mentors and networking opportunities - contributing to their job-readiness and possible fulfillment of community service or class curriculum hours. This is also an opportunity for industry professionals to connect with and mentor up-and-coming talented individuals while providing them with valuable experience.
