Career Counseling

A Truly Wrap-Around Approach to Outplacement

Focuses on integrating the best in career development services with outstanding job search training and a unique focus on the whole person.

While most outplacement firms offer extensive computer and internet resources, the CFPS approach is based on the reality that workers who are laid off represent a viable risk and would benefit from a focus on enhancing their resilience. The CFPS edge focuses on integrating the best in career development services with outstanding job search training and a unique focus on the whole person. We strive to help our clients manage the loss of a job in a way that enhances their resilience and that ultimately helps to achieve results (such as a new job; less animosity toward the previous employer; a sense of renewal about one’s career)
