logo-uscU.S. Cellular is helping employees losing jobs in the sale of some segments of its business to Sprint by setting up a transition portal.

A recruitment advertising/communications agency called Shaker helped develop the portal, aimed at 765 “associates” impacted; Kensington International, an outplacement firm, also partnered.

U.S. Cellular is also working with a group called Skills for Chicagoland’s Future. It’s a non-profit that provides placement and training services.

Back to the portal: it includes information on negotiation strategies; resume and cover-letter tips; interviewing assistance, and social networking guides. Let’s take a brief look inside.
