DLG Career Counselling helps managers and professionals make themselves even more suitable for the position they hold. Our career specialists will coach them in making the correct and deliberate choices for the future.
When you need assistance in an outplacement process, you have come to the right agency. We guide managers and specialists who, for example, due to a reorganization, are forced to choose another career.
Only the best results can be reached for both career counselling and outplacement if the following are considered:
- true personality of candidate
- their talents
- their competences
To determine these, DLG makes use of the unique personality and talent analysis as developed by Essentive. This method is based upon choices people make consciously and subconsciously It is not based upon behaviour and therefore no behaviour tests such as role plays, exercises and assessments are required. This is beneficial as sometimes they could be manipulated.
In the outplacement process, the candidate – together with one of our professionals – will take the next five steps which will enable them to find the right new job.
1. Preparing the departure
Including first wishes regarding future job, bidding farewell, privacy rules with regard to leaving, writing a good CV and personal branding.
2. Market analysis
In this phase the application strategy is drawn up and possibilities in the market are thoroughly discussed.
3. The choice for the search agency
DLG has its own network which will be made accessible to the candidate. We have good contacts with a number of other executive search agencies within our network who could too offer suitable vacancies. Experience proves that a good match between the candidate and the vacancy can be made within a short timeframe.
4. Networking and applying
In the first two sessions, the following items will be on the agenda:
- Role of social networks in finding other employment
- Adjusting LinkedIn profile and how to be found
- Exercising the elevator pitch on video
- Drawing up of application letter
- Anticipating issues recruiters will concentrate on
- Exercising interviews using the video
- Preparation of possible assessment
From a distance we will support the candidate for three months in the application process.
A job cannot be guaranteed however in the past years all of our outplacement candidates found a new position within six months.
