For all outplacement services, we meet individually or in
groups by phone or by web conference weekly.
Candidates may also call or write as desired. Programs
can be tailored to the individual or group. For example, if the
candidate already has a great resume, we would not spend
much time on that but would focus the time on how to find
opportunities, network, etc. -- whatever would be most
helpful to the candidate. When the formal program
ends, we are still available to answer questions and provide
support as needed.
All outplacement package programs include a DiSC® behavioral assessment, comprehensive report,
and feedback. A sample DiSC® report is available by clicking
This assessment helps the individual learn about environments in which
he/she will do best, needs, strategies for effectiveness, and potential
strengths and weaknesses.
For a 1-month outplacement career transition program, we generally focus on:
1) Figuring out what is the best next step for the individual
2) Writing a resume that best reflects the individual's strengths and
3) Learning to write a cover letter targeted specifically for a particular
4) Learning where and how to find opportunities, especially through the
"hidden" job market
5) Learning how to research companies in preparation for interviews
6) Encouraging progress and moving forward in the job search at all times
For a 2-month outplacement career transition program, we continue the weekly calls and
focus the time on interviewing techniques, questions and answers, and
practice. We include a 45-minute videotaped mock interview session
with the candidate.
For a 3-month outplacement career
transition program, in addition to all of the above, weekly
calls, and more time for interviewing practice and feedback,
we also spend time on negotiating techniques, improving job
skills, and learning how to adapt to a new environment.
