Corporate Career Services
One of the most difficult things any organization faces is letting someone go, regardless of whether or not their release is merited. Activ:8 Careers partners with organizations to assist them with the entire “separation process.”
Our approach comes from a place of understanding, acknowledging the emotions of all parties experiencing this dramatic change within the workplace and assisting in the navigation of this often difficult journey. After all, we are impacting the life of the employee and their family as well as their coworkers who remain employed.
Because of our approach, we are not like most outplacement services. We don’t teach or use passive approaches for our clients to land career opportunities. Nor do we boast about “special connections” we can offer job seekers. Instead, we teach concrete methods for how to create their own networking niche. In other words, we teach them how to “fish”, empowering independence through skills that teach how to direct one’s own career now and in the future.
Old school teachings around some tactics keep the job seeker busy, but not necessarily productive. We focus on developing strategies first so that each follow-up tactic makes sense. Our unique, proprietary Activ8 Career System has proven results, directing 8 core competencies and skills that have led to over 15 years of success stories. Our system allows the client to take ownership of their career journey, leading them through a discovery process. They learn how to transition to new opportunities, bridge into a different career altogether, or even become a business owner them self.Contact our career counseling Experts today
Our proprietary Activ:8 Career System is a step-by-step holistic approach. Throughout the transition journey, clients discover what will set them apart – their personal brand – and other steps to success, all the way through the negotiating process so that both parties are happy and satisfied. Each client has a tailored plan, action steps and accountability so that they reach their career destination.
We have experienced a lot of success in partnering those in transition with our professional career strategist. Together, they develop a personalized approach that has the greatest results for our clients.
We believe in a “hands-on approach” to group learning. We don’t lecture, but rather provide interactive sessions to reach breakthrough outcomes for the job seeker.
We use the Birkman assessment tool (and others as needed) to help clients understand themselves better, what company cultures best fit them, and what career options to target.
Additional Books and Materials
We have developed books and materials to accelerate the transition process. Our sought-after interview flash card set has simplified this process and given clients the upper hand, helping them master the art of interviewing and leading to a faster job offer.
