Simply put, an outplacement provider helps you move smoothly to a new job and re-orient yourself in the job market while your former employer picks up the tab for the practical advice and psychological support you’re receiving.
Consultancy firms typically offer individual one-on-one and group session outplacement services covering topics such as career guidance and evaluation, resume writing, interview preparation, network development, and basic job search skills and job market targeting.
In short, a good outplacement provider provides you with the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to go after the new job you deserve now that your current employer has decided to part ways with you.
That’s why you should put your disappointment with your former employer firmly behind you and focus on the positive: as one door closes, another will open. And armed with the right skills, it will be easier than you think to position yourself attractively to a new organisation.
