Brea, CA – May 15, 2020: The Hire Talent and its partner Wimbush and Associates, Orange County-based talent search firms, announced today that they would donate 100% of profits from the book “Get America Back to Work: in a COVID-19 era” to Working Wardrobes, an Orange County non-profit organization.
“30 million people lost their jobs in the first 6 weeks of the COVID-19 crisis in the United States,” said Fletcher Wimbush, CEO, The Hire Talent and Wimbush and Associates. “I have spent a lifetime in the hiring game, and we spent our time in lockdown trying to use our expertise to give back.”
Wimbush and his team wrote a comprehensive guide on how to get back on your feet, how to prepare for a job search, and how to strategically get a dream career in these coronavirus times.
“We are the fortunate ones. We operate two businesses in the HR and Hiring spaces, and Amazon requires us to charge at least $0.99 for this book,” said Wimbush. “We have chosen to donate 100% of the revenue generated by the sales of this book, and we will match dollar for dollar all proceeds as well.”
Wimbush & Associates and The Hire Talent will guarantee a minimum donation of $10,000 will be made to charities focused on Workforce Development.
The first charity partner is Working Wardrobes. Their Career Center tragically burned to the ground in February of this year. The 30-year non-profit works with the unemployed, helping them get on their feet and find work while looking great in donated professional clothing from the Orange County business community.
CEO/Founder Jerri Rosen reacted so positively to this effort. “What Fletcher and his team are doing is what we’d love the entire business community to do – find ways to connect with nonprofits so we can be more effective in offering our services to more people in need. I’m honored by this creative venture and hope Fletcher sells a million copies!”
Working Wardrobes has a complete job coaching team that works heavily with military veterans and other vulnerable populations, providing extra assistance connecting them with work opportunities.
“There will be a lot of competition for jobs, and we expect ten to twenty times the number of job applicants per open position,” said Wimbush. “This may seem daunting, but we have the tools and strategies in this book to get your resume to the top of the pile and in front of the hiring manager fast,” Wimbush added.
“Get America Back to Work: in a COVID19 era” helps walks people through the steps for securing housing, food, clothing, health care, and other critical services the unemployed will need to breathe easier and mentally prepare for the journey ahead.
“My life’s mission has been helping great people connect with amazing opportunities, and I am proud to share everything I know to help people get their lives back on track,” said Wimbush. “I hope everyone who reads this can share in the American dream to prosper.”
