Paulding County, Georgia – Goodwill of North Georgia is creating nearly 50 new jobs in
Paulding County with the opening of its new Hiram store, scheduled to open in
September. Paulding County has seen a major increase in the number of people
applying for first time unemployment benefits. According to recent Georgia Department
of Labor reports, the amount of Paulding County residents filing for first time
unemployment benefits in July 2009 more than doubled from last year. “The new store
presented a great opportunity for us to provide jobs during a time when many
businesses are cutting their workforces,” says Goodwill’s Director of Public Relations
Elaine Armstrong.

Goodwill’s Hiram store will not only create jobs, but it will also benefit people looking to
save money on clothes and household items.

The agency is hiring floor, production and managerial employees. Those interested
should apply in person on August 11, 12 and 14 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at:

Hiram Community Center
219 Main Street
Hiram, GA 30141

Applicants must bring valid United States-issued photo identification and their Social
Security Card.

The new store will be located at 4749 Jimmy Lee Smith Parkway. For more information
