Outplacement – An Option to Get Back to Work SOONER
Unless you are a George Clooney fan – Up in the Air (2009) – or your job was impacted by the 2008-2009 financial crisis, outplacement is probably not a job search term you are familiar with. We recently went from one of the best economies in recent memory to mass unemployment, and now we’re all searching for a “new normal”. For over 1.3 million Georgians, the search for a new normal includes finding a new job, and possibly a new career. Partnering with an outplacement service can be a great way to evaluate your options and get back to work sooner.
Outplacement services can be a great resource in times like these.
Outplacement services are usually offered (and paid for) by large employers to displaced workers. Usually, this is a “benefit” offered to senior managers and above. Outplacement services can include classroom training, job fit assessments, resume writing workshops, interview training and job search strategies.
Some of the major outplacement firms serving Atlanta employers and job seekers include:
What if you don’t have access to an outplacement service through your former employer?
Gig economy workers, restaurant workers, hospitality and travel industry workers are in desperate need of career assistance also. Several area churches have well established job search programs, such as RUMC Job Networking at Roswell United Church or C3G Job Networking at Northpoint Community Church.
