Job Search Webinars – a form of Outplacement Support

Right after the pandemic hit Europe, we asked ourselves: how can we support the many, many candidates who saw their jobs affected? The majority of companies don’t offer any kind of job search support to those who they had to let go – for those who are new to this topics – that support is called: Outplacement.

CV-19: an opportunity for – some – candidates

The job market – when measured by the number of active job ads on LinkedIn – is finally looking up in Europe. Some countries have actually surpassed the initial number of job ads pre-COVID. That’s good news! Having said that – the people who have lost their jobs are not necessarily the candidates that the job market is hiring. There is a certain mismatch between supply and demand. But it doesn’t have to be that way – especially if you do have the competencies that companies are looking for – but are not exposing them in the right way.

So: which competencies are sought after? Which candidates are attractive? How can you be one of them?
