They packed up my apartment and moved my stuff from Virginia to North Carolina. The packing was fast and smooth. The delivery date was sooner than expected. The delivery was prompted and the unloading was fast. No items were missing or broken. Wonderful service. -Tracy H.

When you think about a moving company, you probably think about the folks who actually conduct your move, like the packers, drivers, and warehouse staff. But there are so many other employees “behind the scenes.”

I recently sat down with Alison Zook, JK Moving Services’ Commercial Account Manager, to better get to know her and her role at JK. Here is a little of what she shared:

What does your company do with confidential files and data that are no longer needed?

One of the biggest opportunities for a company to fall victim to security breaches is when confidential data or files are no longer needed.  Unfortunately many times, confidential and personal information are thrown out without being shredded or destroyed properly leaving companies at great risk.

Since there are no laws against “dumpster diving,” your business has no claim to privacy once these documents are thrown out.

You can purchase a paper shredder, although these machines can only manage so much paper at a time and they cannot dispose of electronic or digitally-stored data. Instead, your organization can hire a shredding service which securely eliminates documents and hard drives alike. Whether you need weekly service or have a large, one-time destruction project, you can hire JK Moving Services to provide secure solutions.

Along with shredding documents, JK has the ability to provide a complete information management solution.  One that can store confidential files securely in a digital library which can be accessed at any time along with traditional hard copy document storage services.  This combination of services creates a cost effective solution to meet the needs of any organization.

We utilize production scanning equipment that operates at a speed that allows us to capture images at a high level while maintaining the ability to have a naked eye image quality check at each capture point.

To learn more about our shredding or imaging services, please visit our website or call 703.574.6735.

We here at JK Moving Services would like to thank you for making us champions!

Recently, we were voted the 2014 Best Mover of Loudoun County  by the readers of Leesburg Today.

“JK Moving Services has proudly served Loudoun County’s residents, corporations, and government agencies for more than 30 years,” said Charles Kuhn, Founder, President and CEO, JK Moving Services.

“Our corporate headquarters has been located in Loudoun since 1993, and we are humbled to have the community recognize us for a second year with this honor.”

JK was also recently recognized by the American Moving & Storage Association with a 2014 Fleet Safety Award. This is the second consecutive year that JK has earned this honor from its industry peers.

AMSA’s Fleet Safety Awards distinguish carriers demonstrating the best overall safety performance, safety improvement, and creativity and leadership in safety programs. Awards are given to carriers with the best weighted combination of the lowest U.S. Department of Transportation recordable accident rate per million miles of vehicle operation and the lowest vehicle and driver out-of-service rates.

So from us to you…

JK Moving Services continually seeks to recruit and train the best-of-the-best employees. Throughout the year, we hire interns in various departments across our enterprise.

In that ongoing pursuit, we’ve have the pleasure of partnering with Northern Virginia Family Service (NVFS) to entertain their graduates as interns throughout various departments at JK.

Andrea Bunch, JK’s VP of Human Resources, believes it’s important to offer feedback to interns, starting from the interview process and throughout the period of their internship.

“We want to assist them every step of the way so that they can use what they learn and benefit them during their future career path – no matter what industry they’re in,” said Bunch.

Bunch added, “We’ve received very positive feedback about our program from the interns we’ve engaged from NVFS, and in turn, our employees have communicated their very positive experience working with them.”

I recently spoke with Julie Mullen, Director of Training Futures in the Workforce Development Services department, about NVFS and the internship program. Here is a little of what she shared:

What is Northern Virginia Family Service?

NVFS is a private, non-profit community service organization dedicated to helping individuals and families find new paths to self-reliance and brighter futures. Since its establishment in 1924, NVFS has evolved into a recognized leader among regional service providers.

We want to empower individuals and families to improve their quality of life, and to promote community cooperation and support in responding to family needs. We accomplish this by offering a range of programs that fall under the Agency’s seven service areas, which include: Child Placement, Early Childhood, Health and Mental Health, Housing, Intervention and Prevention, Legal and Workforce Development Services.

Tell me about the internship program; what is the overall goal or purpose?

The internship is the capstone learning experience for Training Futures Trainees, giving them the opportunity to apply the skills they learned in 16 weeks in the classroom to a professional workplace, adding value and gaining confidence. The goal of the internship is two-fold:

  1. Provide motivated, administrative talent for a 3-week period to our business partners.
  2. Give trainees the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned to a professional environment and gain critical experience and confidence to be competitive in the job market.

Our goal is to ensure a fulfilling experience for the intern and internship host company. In order to do this, we consider the culture and scope of work of each internship provider alongside the trainees’ skills, work styles, and career goals.

The internship is generally 3 weeks, Monday – Friday, but we have experimented with different models, including a 6 week internship which was 3 days a week. After the internship is over, there is no formal relationship or obligation between the intern and the company they worked for.

We are currently recruiting for internship partners for spring internships, March 9 – March 27, Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.

We hope the company will be able to give a strong recommendation for the intern as they start their job search and it’s always great if the relationship blossoms into a long term, professional relationship, but the goal of the internship is really just a great learning experience for the intern and a little extra capacity for our business partners like JK Moving Services!

JK offers unpaid internships throughout the year and paid internships during the summer months. If you would like to learn more about career or internship opportunities with JK, please visit the careers section of our website.
