Outplacement Services

Shimmering Careers outplacement services help your off-boarding employees find new jobs faster and reduce downsizing costs for your company.

Personalized Outplacement Plans

Unlike many big outplacement firms that just assemble employees in a room, tell them how to do a job search and send them out on their own, Shimmering Careers works with each employee one-on-one. We get to know their work histories, and their wants, needs and goals. Then we create a tailored job search plan for each employee that can include any or all of the following services, based on your needs and budget.

Resume, Cover Letter and Thank You Letter

Writing a resume and cover letter is one of the most daunting tasks a transitioning employee can face. We relieve the pressure, and help them find employment faster, by providing a personalized job search packet that includes:

  • A customized cover letter that spotlights key strengths and makes a great first impression
  • A unique, professionally written resume that highlights the employee’s accomplishments and qualifications
  • A strategic follow-up letter that thanks potential employers and reminds them of the applicant’s strengths

The Shimmering Careers Difference

Our Guarantee

“We work with every employee until they are completely satisfied with their resumes.”
– Paul Freiberger

Many outplacement services use students or offshore help to write resumes, cover letters and other job search materials, so you never really know who’s doing the work or how skilled they are.

When you choose Shimmering Careers, you’re partnering with career authority Paul Freiberger and his team of outplacement experts who have over 35 years of experience. We’ve worked with some of the top companies worldwide and have helped everyone from janitors to CEOs find employment. We’re seasoned professionals, and we get results.

Why You Should Choose Shimmering Careers

Offering your transitioning employees our outplacement services is the smart choice for your business because:

It lowers your costs.

Shimmering Careers can help reduce unemployment insurance taxes, severance, COBRA payments and other costs by helping your off-boarding employees find new jobs faster than they would on their own.

It reduces the risk of litigation.

When transitioning employees are provided outplacement support, they are 72% less likely to bring lawsuits against their employer, according to a study by the Center for Organizational Research.

It protects your brand.

Your off-boarding employees may end up working for your customers, partners or competition. You may even want to rehire them in the future. By helping you maintain positive relationships with former employees, professional outplacement services protect your company’s good image.

It improves morale and productivity.

Offering outplacement services shows remaining employees that if worse comes to worst, you’ll be looking out for them. This lessens their anxiety and helps improve morale during uncertain times. And when morale improves, so does productivity.

It lessens the impact on managers.

The stress of implementing layoffs can impact the effectiveness of managers in their day-to-day roles and adversely affect staff relationships in the future. Providing outplacement services helps lessen the burden on managers.

It’s the right thing to do.

Departing employees have contributed time and energy to your company. Offering outplacement services is one way to acknowledge their contributions. It can also make you feel a little better about having to make a tough, but unavoidable, decision. Shimmering Careers’ outplacement plans let you do the right thing, without sinking your budget.
