How it works

Our Career Transition Coaches partner alongside the outgoing associates to walk the road with them, so they know they’re not in it alone. Because our priority is their success, we build our process around each associate, helping them to reach their highest potential.

Your outgoing associate will also be supported by our experienced, in-house recruiters and our team of sales professionals, who directly market your associate to our network of HR professionals across all industries. This allows us to be an advocate for your associate, getting their resume moved to the top of the pile and helping them transition to their next role faster than they would on their own.

Joe Abdo

Plant Manager

When we heard about the Career Transition Program, I knew it would be very beneficial for me. It was a great relief to know there would be someone to show me what needed to be done for me to be successful.

Deborah Yeargin


The Career Transition Team truly cared about me and my personal well-being. They gave me reassurance that everything was going to work out and that I would secure a job that fit my talents.

Chuck Stephens

Logistics Manager

I remember a particular day that I asked my Career Coach if I should start applying for operator jobs. She INSISTED that I continue my technician pursuit, and that I not sell myself short on my abilities. The Career Transition Team did a lot on a daily basis to provide the encouragement and vision of the long-term goal, to complete the transition process.
