According to Ella Holsinger, a site administrator for CareerLink, an organization that provides career services to job seekers and employers, the process takes time for the employees to adjust and begin the retraining and finding of new jobs.
"It's a really similar process to any kind of a loss in your life," Holsinger
said."It does take a little while for the shock to wear off and them to take advantage of the services."
Still, some have begun the process.Allegheny West CareerLink
has seen 461 former US Airways employees as customers in its office since January.
Former US Airways employees have a number of skills local employers are looking for, Holsinger
said, ranging from customer service to manufacturing.
