Looking for work during COVID 19?

Here’s why you need an Outplacement Service

It’s no secret that we are facing some of the toughest economic conditions seen in recent years. The COVID 19 pandemic continues its deadly sweep across the globe, causing massive economic upheaval.  

The Australian Bureau of Statistics website indicates that the unemployment rate increased from 7.1% in May 2020 to 7.4% in June 2020. Australian Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has predicted this figure to hit 9.25% by December 2020. Naturally, without the help of the Government’s JobKeeper scheme keeping thousands of people in work, this rate would have been significantly higher.

Competitive job market

Let’s face it, the Australian employment market is way more competitive now than it was twelve months ago. The market is awash with newly retrenched and laid off candidates, all desperate to find work again. Many are unable to return to their former industries.

If you have been job seeking during this time, you might be having far greater difficulty in scoring interviews than you have had in more prosperous times. The reality is that your skills and experience alone, are no longer enough to get your foot in the door. In a candidate rich market, you need to present yourself comprehensively as the ultimate solution to the hiring company. Going through a major career transition, without the help of a Career Coach at an Outplacement Service, can be a challenging journey to take. 

What are Outplacement Services?

Outplacement Services provide career mentoring and support to retrenched or laid-off employees, as they transition into new avenues of employment. Employees are usually referred to these services by the organisation they are leaving, as a parting act of social goodwill. It tells staff that despite the economic conditions, we care deeply about your well being and future success.
