Outplacement Services

If you are downsizing, negotiating a departure, or caught up in the recent economic turmoil, my outplacement services can provide you or your outgoing employee a range of customized services to smooth any transition. I can provide support from beginning to end including transition coaching and assistance, resume and cover letter writing, job search strategy, and job offer negotiation tactics. I work with a range of nonprofit and corporate professionals including senior level executives from across the country to provide custom, in-depth, and affordable outplacement packages.

Why Outplacement?

Outplacement services can protect your organization’s reputation, minimize impact of layoffs for staff and stakeholders, and potentially avoid lawsuits and minimize unemployment-insurance payments. It’s also just the right thing to do for staff who have been loyal employees.

Unlike the larger outplacement companies, my services are never cookie-cutter approaches. Most “big box” outplacement firms simply don’t understand the culture, terminology, and hiring process differences in the nonprofit or government sectors. As a nationally recognized expert on job search in the nonprofit sector, I have unique experience working with specialized niche job searches such as international development, higher education, think tanks, and government agencies. Why pay more to get a lower quality of service?

I don’t offer some of the services others offer, like office space—because I have found such offerings are outdated in the current job search climate. Instead, I help candidates find appropriate job leads and identify target organizations, teach job seekers the latest social networking skills to land a job, and provide the latest interview and resume assistance that gets people back to work faster.

I can design group programs such as exclusive training sessions on LinkedIn, resume writing, interviewing, job search strategy customized for your organization, or offer individual coaching sessions for staff in transition, purchased at a group rate.

Flexible scheduling: your staff can use the services right away, or decide to use them at any point in the future—unlike with some traditional outplacement firms, where your staff has a “cut-off” after only a few months.

Redeployment advice: why lose a great staff person, when you might be able to re-train or re-deploy him or her to another part of your organization? I can provide organizational assessments to determine whether someone might be retained rather than let go, at a potentially tremendous cost savings over hiring from the outside.

Economical: We are significantly more competitively priced than the typical, non-customized corporate outplacement firms.
