Our Philosophy

At Quest, our outplacement services philosophy is based on the belief that we can best serve a displaced employee by truly understanding their unique situation.  To accomplish this, we provide each displaced employee with the personalized one-on-one attention and support they need.  With each of our outplacement packages, a displaced employee receives one-on-one time with a Career Transition Consultant.

"I'm very impressed with your work. Your questions all along were very thoughtful, so I had a feeling you were really going to pull some depth and direction to my experiences. Thanks a lot. I really appreciate this change and look forward to the responses I get from this."
 - -
 Y.E., Senior V.P. of Marketing

Rather than providing group seminars where the displaced employee is expected to learn how to create their own job search tools, we take the pressure off the displaced employee by taking responsibility for creating the job search tools they need to conduct an effective job search.

Outplacement Needs Have Changed

Structure Your Separation Agreements to Meet these Needs

Today's displaced professional is likely to have a home computer with Internet access. They no longer need an outplacement firm to provide them with office space and access to office equipment. 

Rather than providing office space and equipment, we focus on providing your downsized employee with what they really need – personalized one-on-one consultation time, a minimum of 3 months of support, an effective resume written by a professional resume writer, LinkedIn Profile support, a cover letter to highlight their strengths, resume posting to the top online job sites, electronic distribution of their resume to a database of recruiters, an online career assessment tool to provide career direction, a personalized salary report to aid them in salary negotiations, and access to a 24/7 online career portal.

Our Approach to Outplacement

Providing Affordable Outplacement Services 

We recognize that someone who has been downsized isn't in the best frame of mind to attend group seminars to learn new skills like resume writing and Internet job search techniques.  

We take the pressure off the displaced employee by taking responsibility for creating the job search tools they need.  

We use our knowledge of Internet job search techniques to ensure the displaced employee's materials are formatted properly for the Internet and accessible to employers searching for candidates online.    

Finally, we provide ongoing one-on-one consultations with a Career Transition Consultant to help them with any aspect of their job search. We utilize e-mail and telephone consultations to allow us to effectively work with displaced workers located throughout the country.

"Hello, I just wanted to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the great job you did on my resume.  The number of responses I received during my job search increased 3 times since I started sending out my new resume and now I have received an offer for employment.  Thanks again."  
-- S.M., Quality Engineer

Affordable One-On-One Support - In Any Location

We work with downsized employees via telephone consultant and e-mail, which reduces our overhead costs and our outplacement fees. We are able to provide outplacement services featuring one-on-one time with a Career Transition Consultant at a price below many group seminar outplacement packages using this approach. Communicating with jobseekers one-on-one via telephone consultations and e-mail also allows us to work with displaced employees located throughout the country.

We work with all types of displaced employees, including executive-level employees, Directors of Operations, Sales Managers, Sales Representatives, Marketing Directors, Marketing Managers, Plant Managers, Project Managers, IT Directors, Software Engineers, Network Administrators, Consultants, Construction Project Managers, Auditors, Accounting Specialists, production personnel and administrative support staff.

"I have been very happy with both the review and the rewrite of my resume. Factually, I posted the new targeted version on several Internet sites as soon as I received it and my 'hits' went up dramatically that day on all the sites and have stayed up. I received one call the first evening and have received several other calls since."  (Accepted a position with a 30% pay increase.)
-- Greg M., Distribution Manager
