DO Pay Attention to the Man Behind the Screen

Posted by: Sam Valentin on Friday, January 27, 2017

For today’s post I thought it might be fun to introduce you to someone else who works behind the scenes here at Goodwill. If you ever listen to our weekly radio show “Tell Me Something Good” you’ve probably heard me refer to Daniel before (and if you don’t listen to our radio show, you should! Every Sunday at 11:00am on WSRQ Radio).

Who is this mysterious Daniel??

Daniel Hodous is the Communications Coordinator for Goodwill Manasota. I sat down with him to ask a few questions about what exactly a Communications Coordinator does and to get to know him a little better. Here’s what I found out…


Sam: So Daniel, we meet again. Tell me, what exactly is your job as Communications Coordinator? Is it as straightforward as it sounds?

Daniel: As Communications Coordinator, I am responsible for the development and production of all communications material from Goodwill Manasota. I am the person who manages our website and its content. I run our Facebook page, I create the ads we use in print and online, and I film and edit the majority of the videos that Goodwill produces. I also book guests for our radio show and do the promotions for our events.  

Sam: Nice! Sounds like a full plate. How long have you worked at Goodwill?

Daniel: I started this past April, so almost a year now.

Sam: What’s your favorite part of your job?

Daniel: Probably the people I work with. I love being a part of an organization that is so dedicated to helping others and being surrounded by people with the same commitment to do good that I have.

Sam: Aww you’re so sweet! I am great to work with aren’t I?

(Daniel did not think this was as funny as I did.)

Sam: OK, last question, what’s one thing you wish people knew about Goodwill?

Daniel: That we are a true non-profit with a local CEO. I have seen firsthand so much of the good that Goodwill does in the community and wish that everyone else could see it too.


And there you have it! So the next time you see a Goodwill Facebook post in your newsfeed or an ad in your morning paper, you’ll know Daniel is the one put it there. And in case you’d like a face to go with the name…


This is Daniel.
