Resume Pilots has launched its outplacement service for small and medium-sized businesses.
Through a combination of one-on-one support and coaching, the firm's four-stage outplacement programs address the emotional and practical realities of being laid off.
"We know that one-size-fits-all outplacement solutions are simply not the answer. Our clients choose Resume Pilots because we deliver bespoke outplacement support tailored to the individual," Matt Glodz, Managing Partner, explains.
"For our team, outplacement is more than just providing access to a do-it-yourself online portal or generic resume writing advice that requires clients to do most of the legwork. It's the high-touch combination of expert writing and empathetic coaching that enables us to truly position our clients for success."
Resume Pilots' services have achieved positive results for a spectrum of clients from the world’s leading companies, ranging from CEOs and senior executives to middle management and junior members of staff.
Its outplacement assistance programs help departing employees define their goals, create a plan of action, prepare personal marketing materials, and apply for roles.
Resume Pilots is uniquely positioned to help employees who have lost their jobs quickly reenter the job market by preparing professionally written resumes, cover letters, LinkedIn profiles, and professional biographies.
"When employees lose their jobs due to layoffs, their number one priority is securing a new role, and we know that substandard application materials are one of the primary reasons applicants struggle to secure interviews," Glodz said.
“Our team of writers prepares recruiter-approved documents that differentiate our clients from applicants with similar backgrounds and are optimized for applicant tracking systems.”
In addition, Resume Pilots provides outplacement clients with career coaching that helps them reframe their situation in a positive light and serves as a source of encouragement throughout the job search.
Coaches also provide one-on-one assistance based on each client's needs, which can include hosting mock interviews, developing an application strategy, reviewing applications, or helping to decide on an offer.
"In a market where many associate outplacement with a cold, impersonal service that adds little value to employees who are going through difficult career transitions, we listen to our clients and provide practical solutions that help them quickly secure a new role,” Glodz said.
