While working with employers we often use a technique called job carving, where we identify tasks that are currently being performed by a current employee but could be done by an entry-level person. Those tasks become the core duties of a new entry-level job (full-time or part-time). When this happens, the original employee is freed up to spend more energy on core tasks essential to the business.
The above video illustrates how job carving works in a typical scenario.
It is a great opportunity not only for our employees referred by Chinook, but for all of us as well.

With Chinook’s help, we hired Chad, who is an incredible inspiration. Warm-hearted, happy-go-lucky, and eager to please are just a few of his many qualities. I appreciate Chinook’s continued willingness to work with Chad to keep him here with us at Skyline.
Nick does an exceptional job keeping our showroom floor and office spaces clean and appealing for our customers. He is doing work that fits the need of our business. We appreciate his hard work and Chinook for their support in his training.
We absolutely love having Mindy on our team here. She has been an incredible asset, allowing the stylists and estheticians to focus on serving their clients. Mindy helps us transition between our customers seamlessly. Without chinook and the wonderful job they do, we never would have met Mindy or carved this job for her. Chinook’s continued coaching has been an incredible avenue for Mindy to be successful on our team.
