As most are well aware, the moment an employee is told their services are no longer required; their mind immediately turns to the problem of replacing their income. For most people, having to navigate today’s fast moving job market by themselves is a lonely and frustrating prospect. 

To that end, the goal of our full-service outplacement programs at CMS is to provide meaningful, practical and personalized assistance to keep one’s time between jobs to the minimum.

Ultimately, at CMS we are in the ‘helping business’ and every member of our team feels personally responsible for the work we do for our candidates and the HR Managers who introduce them to us. We are all fully aware that our candidates’ success is also our success and reputation, and we work hard to protect both.

3 Pillars of Support

Our full-service outplacement program can be defined by three pillars, ensuring a holistic approach to career transition:

  1. Personal / life coaching; to create a sense of empowerment, confidence and optimism for the future.
  2. Practical job search assistance tools and strategies; to create the biggest pool of potential job opportunities.
  3. Professional financial counselling; to relieve the stress caused by the sudden lack of employment and subsequent loss of income.

In addition it includes:

  • Unlimited Program Coaching
  • Personalized Program Planning & Formal Career Assessment
  • Professional Résumé & Document Writing
  • In-depth Interview Preparation
  • Practical Skills Marketing (including Market Research & List Development)
  • Access to Practical Resources (CMS’ proprietary Canadian Career Management System©; our interactive website)
  • Financial Counselling (by an independent CFP Professional)
  • On-going Support (these discussions may result in planning around retirement, entrepreneurship, re-training, lateral or vertical job level changes)
