Answers to commonly asked questions.

What is the Career Recovery Program and what does it contain?
The Career Recovery Program is the most comprehensive online / OnDemand career training program that exists today and is designed specifically for those individuals who have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Career Recovery Program offers 12 online modules coupled with our OnDemand classes for a complete online offering. The Career Recovery Program offers maximum flexibility by allowing the user to access the content at any time, from anywhere.
What is the COVID-19 Career Recovery Program?
The COVID-19 Career Recovery Sponsorship Program is a nation-wide initiative that provides an avenue for organizations and individuals to sponsor the thousands of individuals in N. America who have lost their jobs (as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic) with the most comprehensive online career training program that exists today.
Who will sponsor these recipients?

In partnership with Z1CareerZone, the following will provide sponsorships:

  • Small Businesses and Corporations
  • Government Agencies
  • Non-profits
  • Individual Contributors
Who will be the beneficiaries and what do they pay for the program?
Individuals who have lost their jobs as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic are the beneficiaries of the program. There is no cost to the beneficiaries.
How are recipients of the sponsorship selected?

Recipients of the sponsorship will be selected 1 of 3 ways:

  • Sponsor: can select specific individuals they know
  • Sponsor: can request Z1CareerZone to choose recipients for them
  • Sponsor can select some to sponsor and request others from Z1CareerZone
Will recipients know who is sponsoring them and will sponsors know who they will be sponsoring?
Yes, the recipients will know who is sponsoring them unless the sponsors tell us specifically that they wish to remain anonymous. Z1CareerZone will be providing the names and contact information of the individuals who the sponsors will be supporting.
How will Z1CareerZone decide who will get sponsored when a request comes in from a sponsor?
The order in which recipients will receive sponsorships will be based on the date they registered on the Z1CareerZone website to be eligible for sponsorship, these will be organized by state. For example, if a corporation, based in Nashville, TN wants Z1CareerZone to provide 10 individuals for them to sponsor, Z1CareerZone would go to their candidate pool that listed Tennessee as their home state and the 10 individuals with the earliest registration date would be selected.
If a company has had to downsize employees as a result of this virus and just doesn’t have the financial means to include this program as part of their separation package, can the company provide a list of those employees to be put in the system?

Absolutely and we encourage those organizations to do so. This can be accomplished in 1 of 2 ways:

  • Have someone from your company authorized to register these individuals on our website at www.z1careerzone.com
  • Direct those individuals who have been downsized to register themselves on our website.
How will Z1CareerZone support this sponsorship program themselves?

Z1CareerZone’s 100% Match Commitment:

  • For every sponsorship, Z1CareerZone will donate an additional sponsorship free of charge, regardless of the volume of sponsorships committed to by individuals or organizations, thus doubling the number of sponsorship recipients.

Additional support Z1CareerZone will provide for the beneficiaries of the sponsorships are:

  • Access to all Z1CareerZone sponsored “Industry Expert Webinars” offered on a regular basis
Can an individual sponsor just purchase one sponsorship without a Z1CareerZone match and if so, what is the price?
Yes, the no-match sponsorship for one sponsor is being offered for $495. We see this quite a bit when someone wants to sponsor a relative or a friend in need.
Can someone who has lost their job, as a result of the virus, purchase their own Career Recovery Program and if so, what would be the price?
Yes, we will honor the same no-match price of $495 for those individuals as well. We see this when someone wants to begin the program immediately and has the means to pay for the program.
Are there any options for a monthly payment plan to cover the cost of a sponsorship(s)?
Currently, we accept credit cards or checks for full payment up front. With that said, we are in conversations with companies that will support a monthly payment plan, so we expect to have that option soon.
How can organizations work together with Z1CareerZone to support what could be the most positive and impactful initiative that can be offered to those negatively impacted by COVID-19?

Here is how Z1CareerZone can work together with organizations to ensure success:

  • Z1CareerZone – Community outreach to identify those impacted
  • Z1CareerZone – Contacts companies and individuals in local communities requesting sponsorships
  • Organizations who have had to downsize: Provide Z1CareerZone with approved list of those impacted that would be eligible to be sponsored by organizations or the public sector
  • Sponsors: Commit to the number of sponsorships
  • Sponsors: Assist with getting this initiative out to your local media outlets
  • Z1CareerZone registers recipients into the online curriculum
  • Z1CareerZone will post all sponsors (with approval) on our website, social media outlets and news outlets as appropriate
What if someone registers for sponsorship but doesn’t get selected, is there any additional support provided?
Yes, as mentioned prior, all those that register will be able to participate in our Industry Expert Webinars that will continue to be offered on a regular basis. Z1CareerZone will also help them to reach out to family and friends for support of them taking the program.
