Shaker Builds Online Portal For U.S. Cellular Outplacement Initiative
By setting up a convenient-to-access online transition/outplacement platform, U.S. Cellular is helping Chicago-area employees losing jobs due to the sale of some U.S. Cellular business units to Sprint.
Shaker Recruitment Advertising & Communications helped develop the portal, designed to assist 765 U.S. Cellular associates impacted by the sale. Kensington International, an outplacement firm, also partnered with U.S. Cellular and Shaker in the implementation of the initiative. Additionally, U.S. Cellular is also working with Skills for Chicagoland’s Future; a non-profit organization that provides placement and training services throughout the Chicago area.
The outplacement portal provides users with information on career/job negotiation strategies; resume and cover-letter tips; interviewing assistance, and social networking guides.
Joe Shaker added, “We haven’t worked with a company that has put so much investment into taking care of its associates, and we are proud to partner with U.S. Cellular on this groundbreaking initiative. We commend U.S. Cellular’s commitment to assist their transitioning associates with this portal; it combines technology, creativity, and compassion as well as remarkable career opportunities.”
