Success Stories

Michael Capezzuto

BRING JOBS HOME

When 32-year-old West Springfield resident Michael Capezzuto came to Goodwill’s Career Academy in Springfield, he had a strong desire to work, but had limited job skills and work experience to fall back on. He had worked off and on in his family’s landscaping business, but was ready for a change and was looking for full-time employment.

After participating in job-readiness training at Goodwill, Michael felt like he was ready for the next step and began looking at career options. Michael obtained a forklift operator’s license and certification at Goodwill and then, with help from the career advisors at Goodwill, secured employment at the Advanced Auto Parts’ distribution center in Enfield, Connecticut, as an associate.

Now working full-time and earning full benefits, he feels things have really turned around in his life. “When I came to Goodwill, I wasn’t working and really didn’t know what I wanted to do,” Michael said. “The staff here really helped me out and I was able to figure out some jobs I could do. Things worked out well for me.”
