WE TAKE A PROACTIVE, SUPPORTIVE, AND FACILITATIVE ROLE TOWARDS ENSURING
THAT SEPARATED EMPLOYEES PUT TOGETHER A VERY ACTIVE, MARKETABLE, AND

While the overriding objective is to identify and obtain career opportunities
for the separated employee, we are sensitive to the fact that different
people have different needs at this stressful time. Some need a program
that gets off to a fast start, while others need more time to assess
their situation and to identify new career alternatives. However, when
a career path is determined, CareerSoar actively assists the
employee in locating employment opportunities and arranging interviews

OUR RECORD IN RELOCATING SEPARATED EMPLOYEES FROM MANY INDUSTRIES AND

What happens when an employee is not re-employed within the program timetable?” This
has for the most part, been an infrequent occurrence. However, when this
occurs we are prepared to extend the time limit of the program at
no additional cost, provided the employee has been actively engaged in the
process of Career Continuance.
OUR LEAD CONSULTANTS ARE SENIOR PROFESSIONALS AND SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS
PEOPLE AND ARE WELL KNOWN WITHIN THE INDUSTRY.
They have had extensive career transition (outplacement) experience and
are very sensitive to the initial and longer-term needs of separated
employees. We would also stress that our senior consultants, including
our Vice President, provide hands-on counseling throughout our Program.
Many are also members of numerous professional organizations, which provide
a strong information network. Our consultants are highly trained as counselors
and many of them are successful business people with a diversity of career
experience to draw on when providing counseling assistance. These Consultants
