Time to clean out your closet! Donating your unwanted household items is now easier and more convenient with Goodwill Industries of New Mexico’s new home donation pick-up program. If you don’t have a truck or can’t transport heavy furniture, it’s no problem. Goodwill will come to you.
Pickups occur between 8 AM and 3 PM Monday through Friday, and you do not need to be home for Goodwill to collect your donations. There is a minimum of three boxes, bags, or furniture items to qualify for pick-up services, but feel free to donate more than that. Just label your items for “Goodwill pick-up” and make sure they are left outside on the ground level – unfortunately Goodwill is unable to go into your home to gather any donations. Also, make sure your donations are properly covered or packaged to avoid any damage – especially if it rains. A receipt for your tax deductible donation will be left at your front door. At this time, Goodwill is unable to pick up donations in all areas of Albuquerque and New Mexico, but the nonprofit organization hopes to expand the donation pickups in the future.
You can schedule your pick-up online using the new online donation pick-up appointment scheduling system. Just type in your zip code and specify your type of pick-up (residential, business, or vehicle) to get started.
If you can’t seem to find the time to load up and drive to one of our donation centers, your solution is here! Keep Goodwill Industries of New Mexico in mind as you purge your home of all your unwanted clothes, furniture, housewares, and more.

Your resume could be costing you that job and with up to 91 million Americans ‘on the sidelines’ there are plenty of people to fill it. But, there are a few things you can do to make your resume stand out in order to avoid missing the mark on your next job application.
First, choose a format for your resume. By using a format, your experience and skills appear more organized and structured. But what format should you use? The three best formats for a resume are chronological, functional, and combination.
Next, start your research. Research, research, research. Read the job description for the position you are applying for and learn as much as you can about the company. What does the organization do? What is their mission, vision, and goals? What would your responsibilities be in the position for which you are applying? Make a list of words that stand out to you in the requirements, preferred skills, and overview sections of the job description and match those words to your own experience, education, and work history.
Lastly, sell yourself. Now is not the time to be modest about your achievements. If you have accomplishments that you are proud of, list them on your resume. Add things that they may ask you to elaborate on in your interview. Interviewers pull questions directly from what you list on your resume so make it interesting. Make sure you are incorporating the words you wrote down from the job description. Employers often look for those key words in your resume before reading it through. What better way to stand out than to show them exactly what they asked for in the job description, right?
