“The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how the airline industry operates, and we’ve seen crewmembers make the tough decision to part ways with our company and take one of our opt-out programs, a selfless decision that has saved many other jobs,” said Mike Elliott, chief people officer, JetBlue. “RiseSmart will play a crucial role in our commitment to supporting our crewmembers in the next step of their careers. With RiseSmart’s outplacement program, we will continue to deliver the Blue Carpet experience to our crewmembers who are moving on from JetBlue.”

Each JetBlue crewmember who participates in RiseSmart’s outplacement program will be partnered with a team of three professionals – a certified career coach, a professional branding expert and a career concierge. These advisors will provide new, custom resumes, refresh social profiles and deliver highly targeted job leads that are not easily found through online job posting sites. RiseSmart participants will also be offered unlimited career coaching to guarantee they receive the guidance needed until they secure their next role in today’s competitive job market.
