MyNewJob.me is challenging the traditional approach to outplacement support by announcing that it has had over 5,000 sign-ups to its online service since it launched in July this year.
MyNewJob.me offers businesses a cost-effective way to support all ex-employees through the difficult process of finding a new role. The service provides users with tools, information and advice which can be tailored to individual needs. As the service is delivered online, jobseekers can access what they want, when they need it and manage the large number of job applications necessary to secure employment in the current market.
Richard Alberg, Founder and CEO of MyNewJob.me, believes traditional outplacement services are not addressing the challenges a jobseeker faces in the current landscape. He says: “MyNewJob.me provides support relevant to today’s jobseeker in today’s difficult job market. Outplacement is expensive and limited in scope, and has traditionally only been there for more senior executives in large corporates. MyNewJob.me enables SMEs, plcs and the public sector to offer effective, affordable jobseeking support to all staff being made redundant.”
Devised by a team with a combined 60 years experience in the recruitment industry, MyNewJob.me provides everything from CV writing assistance and training through to workflow management and interview coaching as well as a comprehensive vacancy search facility.
Pete Harvey, a Banking Applications Specialist, is a user who has benefited from the service. He says: “Having recently been made redundant after 7 years working for a major investment bank, I never realised just how laborious the process for searching for my next job would be. No comprehensive software package existed that encompassed all key elements of the process. The software evolves along with you, the more you use the software the more features become available to assist you in the work search process. And yes – I secured a new job!”
The service costs £250 for 18 months of practical, expert help. Alberg believes it therefore allows all sizes of companies to provide real help to staff they are making redundant.
