Career Transition Services and Executive Outplacement

When faced with a layoff or reduction-in-force, departing employees must quickly determine “What’s next?” – often under difficult circumstances.

With a coaching-based approach, we assist exiting employees with revising resumes, practicing interview skills, and conducting a strategic job search to land a new position. Our highly personalized process is designed to motivate employees to take charge of their job search and leave your organization with a positive impression of your employer brand. Our career transition services are available one-on-one or in a group workshop setting.

“Working with Traverse gave me the ability to evaluate who I was, assess different career options, and learn how to strategically manage my career in a way I never had before. I received highly personalized coaching and the confidence to move forward in discovering what was next for me.” – Senior Marketing Executive
