The individual outplacement program offers one-to-one coaching for executives, managers, and individual contributors who have been released or laid off. The termination may be due to a lack of work, corporate cultural differences, reorganization, technical obsolescence or inadequate performance.
Two individual outplacement programs are offered:
Full Service Program
The full-service program includes unlimited private counseling until employment is secured. In addition, it provides customized research, financial planning, and administrative support.
An abbreviated program consists of private counseling services for a designated period of time.
Both programs are highly personalized, intensive, and adapted to the specific and immediate needs of each individual. A rapport is developed with a consultant, whose purpose is to lend support and guidance. Career evaluation and self-assessment exercises, videotaped interviewing sessions, and research materials are provided. In addition, Internet access is available as well as a computerized database of companies. If appropriate, psychological, aptitude and interest testing is administered.

- Analyze professional accomplishments
- Write correspondence
- Define a job objective
- Source job opportunities
- Establish a job search strategy
- Develop interviewing techniques
