What People Are Saying About Us

"At Hancock Lumber, we are always looking for innovative ways to reach out to our workforce. We believe in attracting motivated people to come work for us. When I learned about Destination Occupation and it’s new, creative way to educate people about jobs in Maine, I knew we should be involved. The video and our company page on the website exceeded our expectations. Any company interested in reaching out to their workforce in a new, creative way should check out Destination Occupation."

—Kevin Hancock, President Hancock Lumber

"Maine Medical Center’s Department of Vocational Services has been providing a summer employment program for teens with disabilities for more than 30 years. Rachel Knight, Principal of Destination Occupation assisted our department in a video which highlighted students and job coaches in our Summer Teen Employment Program. This video has made all the difference in our ability to easily market and explain our program to others. Rachel is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is creative, professional and put our video together in a day and a half. We are thrilled to have the video on our website and have sent it to parents, teachers, rehabilitation providers, potential funders and employers. Hiring Rachel Knight and her team was one of the BEST decisions we made! Thank you, Rachel!"

—Christine A. McKenzie, Director of Department of Vocational Services

"I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed checking out Destination Occupation. I have been using your lessons with my 7th and 8th grade JMG students and I love the format of your website/videos. I love how you show the varying levels of education, skills, and resources ­ all well represented and easily accessible. The career resources are a great tool for providing additional information and direction. For my middle school kids these resources are an effective way to reinforce information presented in the video. For older students and job seekers I can see how the information and resources would be that much more valuable by providing concrete direction. And I love that you note learning styles in the employee profiles!"

—Carolyn Collins, Pittsfield, Maine

"First of all, the videos gave me all the information I needed to know about Modula. How is it working there, the atmosphere, what does the company do etc. Thanks to the video I believe I will make a good fit. I just graduated and I am looking to start a career. I would like to work for a small company with the opportunity to grow within it and make my way up. As one person said on the video, "you learn something new every day" and I think Modula will be a great place to challenge myself and keep learning."

—Jean Pierre, Job Seeker

"It helps to see someone doing something they like and enjoy. I have different interests but I do like working hands on. Learning this story shows me I can do what I want."
