Below is a series of opinions from candidates who have been through an outplacement program with us in recent months.
HowToWin is about winning - in other words, reaching the goal through
a holistic view on strategy, outplacement, recruitment, headhunting,
career counseling and not least, the board of director development and training.
You have also pressed on many right buttons with regards to me
I have also uncovered /invalidated some questions about my strengths and weaknesses, and how I can use/identify them in the best possible way – have also given me ideas, what educational direction I should consider in the future – I don’t reckon that I am done with CBS yet.
You also have 'pressed' many right buttons in getting me to think more strategically and prospectively when I applied for jobs. That is, I have become better at answering relevant questions - also not seeking jobs where I do not really have any future.
I also think the program has given me great ideas when I, in turn, have to start looking for employees. I would think that I will be better to uncover my/the company’s needs after having gone through this process.
It has been an eye-opener
Kim is not only professionally competent - he is also empathetic
I immediately contacted Kim, and after a first meeting where I could judge whether our ``chemistry`` was compatible, we started. Kim is remarkably talented, knowledgeable, energetic and persistent. I was forced to look at myself and my career from new angles, which was an eye opener. But Kim did it in an elegant and supportive way, which was a huge help. I have uncovered and worked with my strengths and weaknesses, my CV has been refined, I have learned to write applications, which ends at the top of the pile. I've learned how to activate my network and I have analyzed my own performance through an imaginary job interview.
Kim is not only professionally competent - he is empathetic and understands that as a redundant one struggles with feelings, and that one’s self-esteem has received a dressing-down. In Kim, I have all along had the best sparring partner one could ever wish for.
... and it's not easy ``to leave you.`` You have been a great support for me and have taken up much of my life the last 3 months. I will with pleasure, advertise about you everywhere.
I am now razor-sharp as to where my skills lie
My best recommendation for an outplacement program
