INDIVIDUAL OUTPLACEMENT SUPPORT
The Outplacement Program has been strategically developed to provide screening, needs analysis, personal development and employment placement preparation.
The Outplacement Program provides participants with the opportunity to consult with a psychologist and apply their problem solving and decision making skills to effectively manage their personal wellbeing, career, work performance, professional skill-set and quality of life.
Thinkahead’s professional counsellors have been trained to address both the practical and psychological needs during the time of transition. Vocational Guidance Counselling can assist in the following ways:
- Assist individuals in establishing their career aspirations and provide them with guidance and support as to how to achieve their goals. The consultations are aimed to assess the individual’s needs and aspirations, identify their strength and weaknesses and ascertain the skills and experiences they have gained throughout their working career. Transferable skills are identified and strategies provided that enable the individual to make an informed decision about their career prospects.
- Assist in coping with intense emotions and loss of self worth following retrenchment
- Professional advice on job hunting strategy and self marketing techniques.
