Planning Your Public-to-Private Sector Career Move: Founded in April 2012, Eclat Transitions Provides Consulting Services and Subject Matter Expertise on Public-to-Private Sector Career Transitioning


The word "eclat" means the success of your prior achievement, and the organization's mission is to help individuals, groups, government agencies, and the military manage a successful career move through purposeful planning, training and development, and professional support.

Alan Malinchak, Eclat Transitions's cofounder and CEO, explains that his vision for the organization grew from discussions with public sector and military employees who were eligible for retirement but had no definitive post-retirement career plans. "They knew they still wanted to work, but didn't know what to do or how to do it--other than throw their resumes on Monster.com," he says.

Working with Eclat Transitions's cofounder and president, Maria Chaloux, Malinchak began to build services around this vision. These services include career transition labs, executive-level programs, seminars, career workshops and counseling, and resume writing and interview assistance.

The half- or full-day career labs give participants a step-by-step road map to plan and execute a successful public-to-private sector career change. Topics of instruction include financial considerations, emotional factors, certifications and other professional education options, interviewing, networking, and negotiation.
