On Wednesday, May 17, Goodwill Industries of Central Florida will partner with Seminole County Bar Association Legal Aid Society, Inc. to host a free webinar on sealing and expungement. This virtual session will walk participants through the process of sealing or expunging a criminal record on their own, including eligibility requirements. Research shows that individuals with a criminal record have a tougher time finding a job, making it more difficult to reintegrate into society. Employment can significantly reduce the likelihood of repeating offenses.
Anyone interested in participating in this expungement webinar must register in advance by visiting https://bit.ly/3M5cR23.
Despite a historically low unemployment rate, many people are still searching for their next career opportunity, making Goodwill’s virtual job connection services more important than ever to the community. Goodwill Connects job specialists work virtually with people to update résumés, practice interviewing and apply for openings online – ultimately connecting more people to potential employers, and employers with potential job candidates.
