“With the downturn in Michigan’s auto industry and the noticeable job trend from manufacturing to service-oriented position openings, it is imperative to not only be ready, but well prepared for a career change,” said James Thompson of JMJ Phillip.
Detroit, MI (PRWEB) February 3, 2010
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are currently over 700,000 unemployed Michigan residents. Since the state's key industry - the auto market - is shedding jobs at all levels, the executive search firm JMJ Phillip will now offer complimentary career-shift coaching on a first come, first serve basis to help put some of Michigan's jobless back to work.
JMJ Phillip's Manufacturing Transition Initiative (MTI) will provide valuable assistance to those professionals looking to transition out of the manufacturing industry and into another job sector. The MTI staff will offer personal coaching sessions for up to 25 unemployed Michigan residents on a monthly basis. During these informative meetings, they'll discuss the new rules for job searching during the recession as well as offer advice for a successful career change, including job interview tips and resume writing help.
"With the downturn in Michigan's auto industry and the noticeable job trend from manufacturing to service-oriented position openings, it is imperative to not only be ready, but well prepared for a career change," said James Thompson, Vice President of Business Development for JMJ Phillip. "To maintain a competitive edge in today's job market, it is important to participate in continuing education courses, utilize social media networks to leverage relationships as well as have an effective resume presentation to grab a prospective employer's attention. "
JMJ Phillip will be offering employment coaching services throughout 2010 for Michigan residents to help prepare them for the state's shift toward local energy efficiency projects and other service-sector jobs.
