What an amazing experience: Leah is an expert in her field and a gifted individual. The services all encompass from coaching, career guidance, profiling, and resume writing deliver instant results. If you are wanting a change or personal career development this is a rewarding endeavour at any level. It was a pleasure working with Leah and her team, I highly recommend the services of Relaunch me.

Thena Johnston, Manager – Aged Care, Melbourne

I found the time I spent with Leah to be invaluable, and the coaching advice was practical and useful. The coaching gave me an insight into my own life, the people around me and my employment, and helped me understand what has and hasn’t work for me in my past work environments so I can make better decisions going forward. I highly recommend Leah and her skills to anyone who is looking for career (and life) coaching. I am considering a session with Leah and my teenage son in the near future to help with his career planning as well.

Reuben Farrelly, IT Manager, Sydney

Hi Clare, Well…..a lot has happened. Firstly thank you! Coming to see you was one of the best things I’ve ever done! I will be enrolling to study from next February having completed four informational interviews with people working in this sector. I’ve started volunteering in the sector and will also get the chance to spend some time as a stay-at-home day which I never thought would be possible. Overall, being made redundant was exactly what I needed to take this next step. Again, thank you thank you……I’m so glad I came to see you. The follow up resources were excellent and our meeting really confirmed who I am as a person. Thanks again, Pete

Pete, Project Manager, Melbourne

Leah is fantastic at what she does and her coaching methods are very rewarding. Her sessions provided me with the confidence and preparation required when going into job interviews and without a doubt was a major reason why I now have the job I wanted.

Matt, IT Service Desk Administrator Melbourne

Leah is an exceptional career counsellor and very warm and professional mentor.
I enjoyed my career transition counselling with Leah because it provided me with great tips on revising my CV to showcase my key skills and achievements, as well as tips on writing a powerful Cover Letter and compelling LinkedIn profile. She is especially skilled in behavioural interview questions and has provided me with many practical tips on interviewing effectively. Leah coached me on answering common questions I could expect to receive, as well as less prevalent but challenging (e.g. sensitive/ethical) questions.
We had three sessions together and I felt that Leah covered a lot of ground. I lined up a role within 3 weeks of being made redundant from my last job and I feel confident that Leah’s coaching and interview preparation went a long way to helping me land a great role in a peak health organisation. I would highly recommend Leah.

Nada, Senior Policy Advisor Melbourne

I was sceptical that I would gain anything by seeing a career counsellor after I was made redundant, especially in just three sessions.
But Leah gently drew out of me what was holding me back and quickly tapped into what I needed. We got straight into some challenging work that shook me out of my preconceived ideas.
Leah’s professional background meant she knew what recruiters are looking for, not just in their candidates but also in the changes I needed to make to my CV but also my interview skills, which really needed some work!
Leah switched me onto the value and uses of LinkedIn too. She made some suggestions about how I could manage my professional social media better, and although I was initially sceptical, I was surprised by the attention my profile attracted, and the opportunities that came from it. I soon saw that LinkedIn became one of the ways recruiters found me, but also one of the ways employers checked me out even before deciding to interview.
Thanks to Leah’s input and my hard work I landed a great job, and a real step up in my career that I don’t think would have been possible without Leah.

Richard, Senior Policy Advisor, Melbourne

Learn More About Our Post Redundancy Outplacement Program

Retrenchment and layoffs are traumatic. The experience includes loss of employment and income and the companionship of the workplace community. Redundancy is also often accompanied by a debilitating loss of self-esteem and purpose. Moreover, for those who have been made redundant, the process of looking for a new job can be daunting, with a suitable placement challenging to find, especially when the job market is contracted in some industries due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, there is something employers can do to help ease the transition – outplacement. Outplacement support can greatly assist a terminated employee in finding their next position and give them the confidence that they require to face the job market.  Our outplacement support is customized to the individual and their needs and may include career coaching (including a personality and interest’s career assessment), job search support, resume/CV writing, cover letter writing, LinkedIn writing and coaching and/or behavioural interview coaching support.

The benefits for employers are numerous, including safeguarding their external reputation and maintaining internal staff morale, with the reassurance that the company will look after their staff if a redundancy is required.

 

What is Outplacement Support?


Also known as career transition support, outplacement is for people or groups who’ve been made redundant and are seeking a new job or career. Part of this support is coaching for successful interviewing and resume and cover letter creation, job searching support, LinkedIn profile writing support and career counselling.

In more detail, our outplacement redundancy support services include coaching on and assistance with:

  • Career Coaching: Our coaching includes career and executive career coaching and two programs – Career Launchpad and Relaunch Your Career.
    • The career transition assistance courses help you identify your strengths and aptitude and explore career options for the right fit, even if you’ve been off the market for a while.
    • This coaching option is ideal for high school, school leavers and university students, those seeking a new career or returning to work after a break and unsure how to go about it, retrenched individuals for clarifying and crystallising existing career goals.
  • Writing a professional resume and cover letter: Your resume is an essential document for career progress and success. We assist you by creating a professional document and cover letter to help you gain interviews and impress interviewers. You will have a consultation with one of our highly experienced writers before they draft a new, tailored and keyword optimised resume and cover letter on your behalf. Consider the following:
  • We are confident in the quality of our resume writing based on the feedback and experience of our clients using their new documents to apply for positions of our users getting their desired interview.
  • Our knowledgeable and experienced resume writers know what to write, which industry-specific buzz words to include, and how to create a winning resume that sells you skills, strengths, achievements, key experience, know-how and passion.
  • In addition, our cover letters and resumes are ATS compliant for your peace of mind. In other words, we create documents that are simple to scan, contain job ad aligned keywords, and allow the applicant tracking system to parse the application easily.
  • Job searching: Our 90-minute job search session is available in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and virtually via Zoom. Expect the following by the end of the training:
