Albany Goodwill expands career center

The Albany Goodwill Career Center is expanding.

The building is expected to grow from 3000 square feet to about 8000 square feet to add more computers and rooms for training. Goodwill also hopes to help more people find jobs by holding job fairs with area businesses as part of the expansion.

"Employees are scrambling to find qualified educators and people to fill those positions so, we look forward to being a catalyst, if you will...and a connector for making that happen for local employers," said Harriet Holland Albany Goodwill Career Center Director.

Holland says the expansion begins this month and they hope to have everything set up by the end of April.
