What Now? Your Complete Jobhunting Toolkit

The situation:

Following the reduction in scope of the UK public sector, we recognised a need for a practical, interactive jobhunting tool which would help individuals who have lost their jobs to find a new job as quickly and simply as possible.

The project:

In conjunction with redundancy specialists, we designed an effective low-cost online outplacement support package, designed specifically to support the redundancy process in the public sector. The package gives advice to both the management team and the staff being made redundant, with the latter being given tools to help them over the first six months.

The package covers all aspects of job hunting after redundancy, including:

• handling your finances after redundancy

• managing stress and dealing with emotional issues

• preparing a successful job strategy

• write a winning CV and covering letter

• improving your interview technique

• negotiating salary

Also included are useful interactive tools for budgeting, skills definition and organising job applications, as well as CV and covering letter templates.

The result:

A low-cost, step-by-step job hunting package which can be customized and rebranded for public sector organisations. This is a suitable bolt-on support which takes a more realistic view of redundancy beyond the initial one month period of jobhunting.
