Outplacement

consulting for job seekersIt’s true. No one really likes going through a reduction in force or rightsizing the company. Hard decisions are made. Employees are thrown into flux, uncertain of their own future. Fortunately, outplacement services can get them on the fast track to a new job as soon as possible.

Google defines outplacement as “the provision of assistance to laid-off employees in finding new employment, either as a benefit provided by the employer directly, or through a specialist service.” What it really means is giving your loyal employees a fighting chance in the competitive job market.

Recruitment methods change. Social media sites like LinkedIn have become paramount in the modern job search. Even the face of networking has changed as we rely more on digital devices as traditional outlets like monthly professional association meetings wane.

Many outplacement firms concentrate on the executive suite. While we certainly have experience in this sector, we have provided services to every experience level – from a call center whose relocation caused the layoff of 40 employees to dedicated mid-level account managers for a major healthcare provider’s corporate office.

  • Group classes on resume writing, interviewing, job searching, and LinkedIn
