Social Networking – Are Outplacement Specialists Missing a Trick?

As someone with an expertise in career coaching, I often visit the websites of outplacement companies. (In case you aren’t familiar with the term, according to Wikipedia, ‘outplacement is a term used to describe the efforts made by a downsizing company to help its redundant employees through the redundancy transition and help them re-orientate to the job market. To put it simply, they help people who are being laid off or made redundant to find a new job, or even a new career.)

In general the sort of advice that most outplacement companies give at the moment centres around good solid real world things like getting your cv up to date, seizing any opportunities for training or retraining, looking at your own strengths and weaknesses, researching the market, targeting who you apply to, using your existing contacts and so on.
