How individual outplacement can benefit your career and improve your mindset
CV Pilots offers highly personalised outplacement services for individuals, known as our career transitions service.
Whether you were recently made redundant or are simply looking to pivot into a new sector, you know that career transitions can be stressful.
We're here to take some of the pressure off your shoulders.
Together, we'll come up with a strategy to help you tackle your job search.
Then, we'll prepare a top-quality CV and cover letter to help you stand out from similar applicants.
We'll also update your LinkedIn profile and coach you on how to best leverage it for your job search.
In this article, we’ll explain:

Who our career transitions service is for
Clients who we have helped with our outplacement services fall into a variety of life situations and career scenarios.
Some of the most common reasons clients approach us include:
“I was unexpectedly made redundant, I’m overwhelmed and I don’t know where to start.”
“I feel like I’m doing all the right things, but I just can’t seem to secure any interviews.”
“I reach the interview stage but can never seem to make it past the first round.”
“I’m making good money and doing well in my career, but I just feel empty. There has to be more.”
“I know I’m not in the right type of role and need a change, but I don’t know what to do. I’m not sure what other roles are out there and what will make me happy.”
If any of the scenarios above resonate with you, know that we’ve worked with similar clients before.
We don't offer a cookie-cutter program that simply provides you with templates or a do-it-yourself online portal.
Instead, your benefit from individual support that is tailored to your needs and equips you start making progress.
What our individual outplacement services include
Our service includes everything you need to apply for new roles as well as one-on-one career coaching.
You’ll work directly with our founder Matt Glodz, a Certified Professional Career Coach, to clarify your direction and prepare an action plan.
By taking the time to discuss your needs before we get started, we ensure that you capture as much value as possible from our time together.
If you're were just made redundant or lost your job, we'll help you reframe your situation so that you can approach your job search from a better frame of mind.
By approaching your job search with a more positive mindset, you'll accelerate your progress, make decisions that better with your values and come across more confident in interviews.
Personal Marketing Materials
You’ll work with one of our CV writers, who will prepare high-impact personal marketing materials including a CV, cover letter and LinkedIn profile.
Throughout our writing process, we ask you targeted questions that help us highlight your achievements and the value you bring to an organisation.
As a result, we're able to tell your story in a compelling manner that differentiates you from other similar applicants.
Because we are arguably in one of the most competitive recruiting environments we have experienced, it is critically important that your CV is professional, well-written and tailored to best position you for your target roles.
We want you to get the most out of your coaching sessions.
While we provide a general structure for each session, you'll remain in complete control with regard to the topics we discuss.
Topics we commonly support clients with include:
- How to strategically apply for jobs
- How to help recruiters find you on LinkedIn
- How to make the most of LinkedIn
- How to effectively communicate with recruiters
- How to follow up and send thank you notes after interviews
- How to decide on an offer
- How to approach salary negotiations
Our coaching process will not only provide you with practical advice but will also provide encouragement and motivation that keep you going when the job search gets tough.
What makes us different
We know that career transitions can be overwhelming.
As such, we believe that in order for outplacement to be truly effective, it needs to be a high-touch process.
Unfortunately, we hear many horror stories from clients who were rushed through the outplacement process or were provided with generic resources that added little value.
At CV Pilots, our primary goal is to help decrease the burden on your shoulders and help you find a job faster - not to give you yet another thing to navigate.
