Helping Employees Navigate Career Transitions

Jurupa’s outplacement services have been designed to assist employees who have been laid off or let go from their jobs in finding new employment opportunities. These services provide guidance and support to employees as they navigate the job market and search for new career opportunities.

Assessing Skills and Interests

The first step in the outplacement process is assessing the employee’s skills and interests. This involves evaluating their work history, identifying their strengths and weaknesses and exploring potential career paths that align with their interests and goals.

Identifying Career Options

Once an employee’s skills and interests have been accurately assessed, the next step is to identify potential career options. This can sometimes involve exploring new industries or sectors, considering alternative roles or positions and researching job market trends to determine where there may be demand for certain skills or qualifications.

Developing a Plan

With a clear understanding of the employee’s skills, interests, and career options, the next step is to develop a plan to achieve their career goals. This may involve acquiring new skills or qualifications, networking with industry professionals, or creating a targeted job search strategy.
