Career Visions - Outplacement and Career Counseling

In response to the current economic climate, the Cultural Alliance has partnered with Career Visions, a highly respected local firm with strong ties to the nonprofit community, to offer a subsidized outplacement and career counseling package.  The Cultural Alliance has entered into this partnership to help member organizations provide practical, compassionate assistance to employees who face job loss due to downsizing.

Career Visions' Outplacement Services package consists of five one-hour, in-person sessions with additional telephone/email support during the transition and job search. The goal of these sessions is to reduce the stress - and hopefully the length - of the job search by helping the employee to design and implement an effective plan.

The employee will receive a comprehensive career assessment and assistance with resume development, interview skills and job search strategy. Please click here for more information including program details and rates, or you can visit www.careervisions.cc.
