Outplacement Services

Inspire Careers provides corporate-sponsored outplacement and career transition services to executives and career-minded professionals. We offer customized individual programs that provide one-on-one consultation on development of a branded resume, cover letter and/or biography, social media communication strategies, job search strategy planning, and interview preparation, along with weekly career & job search coaching sessions. Each candidate prioritizes the professional services to be provided based upon his/her needs.  

Sponsoring firms may present the program to an individual employee, offering a pre-determined number of units (hours) of service. The individual may then select the program services he or she desires at the initial consultation meeting with us.

Individual clients may select from the program services shown below to construct a career transition program that best meets his or her needs. Please note that one unit equals one hour of service.
