Outplacement Participant's Testimonial
"The programme updated me on the skills I would need to find another job" "
It is my great honour to be able to give Rose Easter a testimonial. We have crossed paths when attending credit industry business functions as she was recruiting in that industry. So I have known her around 7 years and always found Rose to be professional and of a friendly, bubbly nature.
Last year, after 15 years with a company and working my way up to Credit Manager, my role was made redundant. Rose was brought in by the company to do the Outplacement Programme. The first thing I told her was that I felt privileged that I had worked so long for this company and they had been kind enough to get this service, to make this time a little easier for me.
The programme updated me on the skills I would need to find another job as the big wide world had changed a lot since the last time I was job hunting. It included how to present yourself, to a prospective employer, verbally as well as dress code. What questions employers would probably ask, prompting me to think ahead of situations in my working life that would show my best qualities and skilled work experience. I also got a current CV designed for me to send away when applying for jobs. I can also use part of this programme (S.T. A. R) in everyday personal life as well.
Rose is a very compassionate person with a good sense of humour, an excellent example of someone who enjoys what she does best.
I would recommend the outplacement programme to companies having to restructure and making staff roles redundant.
