Employees Maintain All Key Performance Indicators (KPI) as Site Closes Down

Last year Fokker Airinc hired us to provide outplacement consulting for three-dozen people in Fairhope, Alabama when their plant was consolidated with another nearby plant. I was down there three straight weeks; some clients landed jobs before I left.

Here’s a report from a client who has just landed a better job. I’d kept in touch with this delightful lady since the project ended. She’s been doing a lot of consulting and part-time work while she continued to look for a full-time opportunity. She also continued to do volunteer work. As you will see, it paid big dividends. Congratulations Julie; I am very proud of you!

Hi Dave!

Sure hope you are doing well. Just dropping you a line to let you know I start a new job in July in Daphne. I will be a project specialist for a medical billing company.

I met the owner while working on a multi-year high school reunion committee. It pays to volunteer! Patti could see by my dedication to the event that I am a hard worker. I designed, created and had printed 450 name tags with photos using scanned portraits from 10 years worth of yearbooks.

Anyway, I am going to learn a new industry! I will help with IT troubleshooting, marketing, website and more. I even told her about the WIA OJT program that I qualified for and she will get a government grant of 50% of my wages for a few months while I am in training. This is a new position that she created for her fast growing business so I am excited to see how I can contribute.

Thank you again for the guidance you provided at Fokker Airinc. I learned a lot and especially appreciated the assistance with LinkedIn. It is a very helpful resource and I use it every day.

Take care and keep in touch.

Have a great 4th!
