The Grand Opening event will be held on December 4 at 10 a.m. and will feature special announcements from the Phenix City Mayor Eddie Lowe and Phenix City-Russell County Chamber President Vic Cross, as well as other elected officials and community leaders. 

Visitors will have the opportunity to win a Kindle Fire and the first 200 guests will receive a free gift.  The Career Center will host a community resource fair featuring opportunities with the Russell County DHR, Chattahoochee Valley Community College, Russell County Health Department and more.

The 3,000 square foot Career Center will include two training rooms, two interview rooms, eight computer stations and printing, faxing, and scanning services.  The facility will also offer several job search resources including a job board listing available jobs in the community and classes teaching resume writing and interview skills.  Goodwill staff will be available at the Career Center daily to assist with the career services provided.
