One thing for sure. There are a lot of quality laid off professionals out there. This could be for any number of reasons…layoffs, mergers, acquisitions, reorganizations, and other reasons as well. Many of these are quality, placeable people whose backgrounds span all industries, functional levels, backgrounds and geographic locations. Why not take a look and see if any can fill your open assignments.
Many of us know something about the outplacement industry. What many don’t know is that they often offer recruiters the ability to post jobs and search their resume databases. They all also have some type of job listing service. This service is typically free to the recruiter community.
Here are a few to investigate:
Lee Hecht Harrison – www.lhh.com
Challenger, Gray & Christmas - www.challengergray.com
DBM CareerServices - www.dbmcareerservices.com
Right Management Consultants - www.right.com
Although the short list above are the larger firms in this industry, I assure you there are many more. You can use the search term “outplacement” in Google to locate more resources as the need arises.
