In Pearland, employment for veterans is a priority for the community and for all of us at Goodwill Industries of Houston. Even though veterans have assumed leadership positions during their deployments overseas and learned a number of valuable skills, too often they have trouble finding work when they return home.
At Goodwill, our mission is to help members of our community who have been out of the job market for a while acquire the skills they need to find employment. For veterans in Pearland TX, that may mean brushing up on resume building or determining how the skills they learned in the military can be used in civilian jobs.
