Outplacement & Career Transition

White Paper on The Risky Business of Layoffs


The focus of our transition program is to coach your employees who are in transition to initiate and maintain an intensive job search effort as well as develop life long career resilience capabilities.

The foundation of the program is an assigned professional career consultant who works with the individual client throughout their transition process.  Rather than support from the “consultant of the day”, each participant has a personal consultant/coach who is dedicated to their career goals.  Our Career Transition Program is tailored to the needs of each individual client and represents the finest outplacement services available for all levels of employees.  Its superior process is based on best practice techniques and resources developed by experienced and certified career coaches. In addition to traditional employment options, comprehensive support is provided for individuals who desire to go into business or consulting.


Our Career Transition Program provides comprehensive career assessment job-search training, preparation, and application that effectively positions individuals to maximize opportunities throughout their job search campaign. Participants learn the most up-to-date strategies, techniques, and practices to build and implement a sound campaign that will sustain them throughout their search for that next career opportunity.

Participants also benefit from outstanding job search and career management learning and technology resources.
