Bounce Back Stronger Even After Layoffs
You can find the rug pulled suddenly from under your feet
After a long, illustrious career in a leading multinational, and growing to a Senior Finance Manager, Moses was suddenly laid off as the company sought to radically cut costs by outsourcing some services. Finding himself suddenly looking for a new job, he didn’t know where to get started. He knew the requirements for the job search process had become more stringent and that the market’s expectations and competition was high. He also realized there was no value in spending weeks or months trying to figure out how to go about it by himself and so he reached out to us.
It's good to get an independent, objective view of where you are at
In our consultation, we unearthed that he was ready to cross over to a higher level but his CV did not speak to this. His LinkedIn profile ranked low and was written in a way that did not position him for CFO roles which is where he desired to be. We also realized that he would need help preparing for technical assessments.
We go through a thorough process to deliver exceptional results
Moses selected our full service where we covered all aspects of the job search – CV, LinkedIn, Interviewing and technical assessment preparation. We started off with a 5-hour long career coaching and exploration session. During the session, we gathered a lot of information on his career before selecting the most potent and using it to first build his CV & then LinkedIn profile. We then held mock interviews and guided him through a technical assessment for his role, navigating screening and panel interviews etc.
Here's the Result of Working Together
We introduced him to our network of recruiters, who were elated to meet a prepared candidate like him. In fact, one of the roles he interviewed for was a regional CFO position through Kenyans Come Home, quickly sailing through the screening process and assessments.
A few months later, he landed a new role.
Not only did he pay us the kindest compliment by saying this was the best service he ever bought, but he referred not one but two of his direct reports who had also been retrenched. One of them is now a Group Finance Director at a Global Educational Service and the other an Accounting Director at a Global Consultancy firm.
If you’ve been retrenched, don’t despair. Let us help you.
