Jet Professionals Assists Companies With Outplacement Needs Through Career Transition Services Program

Teterboro, NJ, July 22, 2009 - Jet Professionals has recently introduced its new Career Transition Services program to assist aviation companies and flight departments with improving the job search skills of their displaced workers. The program offers employers a high-quality job search assistance tool at a competitive price. Employers can choose from a menu of services that meet their needs with regard to their financial resources and number of employees involved.

“Career Transition Services is available to companies which have reduced their workforces and wish to support their former employees in securing new employment,” said George Kythreotis, managing director Jet Professionals The Americas. The program offers a one-day premium package or a two-day platinum package, both featuring the latest job search techniques and information. The premium package is a condensed program for companies who seek an economical and complete package for participants to begin a new job search, while the platinum package includes additional material for those who wish a more intensive training experience. Both seminars offer 90 days of counselor-directed follow-up support for all participants.

The program features experienced and trained counselors from Jet Professionals who deliver the seminars live. They will travel to an employer’s desired location or have the program conducted at a Jet Professionals location.

“The seminars will each cover essentially the same subject matter,” said Kythreotis, “however, the two-day course is more in-depth. What makes our program different is that we teach the course from a 21st century perspective, and thoroughly explain and review the value of the Internet, social, and professional networking websites for those who may be unfamiliar with these new tools.”

The course will also cover the impact current trends will have on careers and discuss options for additional training that may be necessary to secure re-employment. Jet Professionals will provide information regarding industry events, networks, organizations and agencies that can be of assistance in this transition.
