Mock Interview Day

Mock Interview Day

About This Campaign

Goodwill has partnered with Healing House, a non-profit, faith-based substance abuse recovery organization. As Healing House is providing safe and stable homes with opportunities for spiritual and personal growth for men and women who are committed to overcoming their addiction, Goodwill is offering those individuals career path guidance and essential skills training.

Together, we are hosting a mock interview day, so these hardworking job seekers can practice and improve their interview skills and be that much more prepared for their next job offer. Volunteers will interview our participants and provide honest feedback to help them improve. Goodwill will provide the interview questions and interview scorecard.

Campaign to Support Goodwill of Western Missouri & Eastern Kansas

Goodwill of Western Missouri and Eastern Kansas (Goodwill) empowers people to discover their potential and adapt for the future through the power of work. We help job seekers throughout the entire employment continuum; we support individuals in engaging the workforce, retaining work, gaining skills, and advancing their careers. In 2019, more than 3,500 individuals gained job skills and 849 people earned employment.


Goodwill provides workforce development services, job training, and employment in 82 counties across western Missouri and eastern Kansas, focusing our programs in the following counties: Jackson, Clay, Platte, Wyandotte, and Johnson. We support individuals with different abilities and disadvantaging conditions, such as persons with physical challenges or cognitive disorders, limited education and work history, criminal backgrounds, underemployment or unemployment, or a situational barrier such as lack of transportation or housing.


We believe every person deserves the opportunity to work. Employment is more than a paycheck. It is independence, agency, dignity, and equality. Jobs empower people to support themselves and their loved ones, pursue life goals, and participate in their communities. 


Goodwill impacts lives through three strategies customized to meet participants’ unique needs:


● Our donated goods retail model provides employment, career planning, and upskilling through the recycling and reselling of material donations in our stores. 

● Our commercial and government contracts offer case management and employment for individuals with a different ability. 

● Our employment services and workforce development programs provide job training, job coaching, career placement, and ongoing retention supports for people with severe barriers to employment.


Over our 125 years, we have served over 617,000 people, provided over 23,000,000 services and secured over 202,000 jobs.
