After 20+ years in the banking world, Judy decided to take an early retirement but shortly after realized she wasn’t ready for the world of retirement. She started searching for a new job but after several months with no job prospects, she became involved with the Women’s Opportunity Center of Burlington County. They referred her to Goodwill’s JOB CLUB for career services.
From the moment she stepped through Goodwill’s doors, she felt at ease and confident that she was on the right path. Goodwill Job Developer Sean Hinnegan quickly helped Judy update her resume, conduct job searches and follow up on submitted resumes. Before long, she heard those magical words—“You’re hired.”
In her new position as branch manager for Beneficial Bank, Judy is responsible for all facets of branch management—ranging from new business development, sales, customer service and audits. “This job means the world to me. It has given me a sense of renewal and purpose,” she said. Goodwill’s caring and compassionate staff of job developers certainly made a positive impression on Judy.
