Success Story, JSC & Local Businesses

on Monday, 18 May 2015 14:33.

Today's Success Story is slightly different than the previous ones we have featured. Our recent stories have focused on the job seeker and their experiences at the CareerLink, but this one is about the recent success a local employer experienced in collaborating with the Job Search Center.

This story is written by Karen Lindquist of the Job Search Center: 

On February 11, 2015, Ken Medved, a participant in the Job Search Center, started a new position as a Driver for Central Aluminum Supply in Landisville.

On February 27th, I received an email from Dave McClain, the General Manager for Central Aluminum Supply, explaining that he was searching for 2 more employees and to give him a call.

I contacted him shortly thereafter and we had a detailed conversation about his needs and how he would like to proceed. He decided that he wanted me to forward resumes to him and then he would let me know who he would like to interview.

In three days, I contacted 9 customers whose background closely mirrored the job description to ascertain their interest.

I emailed 4 resumes to Dave for his review. He decided to interview 3 of them at the plant between the hours of 8:00 and 3:00.

He gave me permission to set up the interviews and I scheduled them and informed our customers of their interview time and date.

Dave McClain hired Thomas Morrison, a dually-enrolled Re-Entry/Job Search Center customer on March 16, 2015. 

This is an example of how PA CareerLink staff can meet and facilitate employer needs. It was a win-win for everyone involved.
