Outplacement Support for Non-Dutch speakers

What is outplacement & what does an outplacement service do?

When an organization makes the tough decision to lay off employees, Outplacement is one of the most important parts of any severance package they offer.

Outplacement is a service offered to employees who have lost or will be losing their job to help them quickly find a new and satisfying job.
Outplacement is a benefit offered by responsible organizations to help former employees quickly find a new job in the job market.

An outplacement trajectory for non-Dutch speakers with Together Abroad

During your outplacement trajectory for non-Dutch speakers,  you go through different phases to come to a new, fitting job. At Together Abroad all trajectories have five phases, which you go through more or less extensively depending on your personal situation and needs. What the trajectory will look like exactly, you determine in coordination with your personal coach. Because YOU are central to us! Then, during the outplacement trajectory, planning is made. So that we can find a new and suitable job for you. Together with the coach, you will increase your self-knowledge during the outplacement trajectory and you will work on the technique of networking, finding vacancies, drawing up resumes and cover letters, and applying for positions.

During our outplacement process, you will go through the following steps:

1. Dismissal processing and applying for your WW benefit.
Most candidates recover from the fright before they (can) look to the future again. During this phase of the outplacement trajectory, the acceptance of the dismissal is central.
We assist you in applying for your WW benefit via the UWV portal and inform you about your rights and obligations.

2. Self-analysis
Who am I, what can I do and what do I want? The answers to these questions form the basis of your search for a new job. You will start working with a clear profile of yourself. That profile includes your expertise, skills, and competencies. But also from an overview of branches, organizations, and functions that suit you.

3. Labour market orientation
What does the job market look like, which vacancies are there and which ones appeal to me? For many candidates, it has been a while since they were looking for new work.

In the meantime, the labor market has changed enormously.
During this step, we are going to work with (new) resumes a distinctive motivation letter, new LinkedIn profile, application training, an elevator pitch, personal branding, interview training, and the use of social media.

4. Job hunting and personal/online meetings
Our job coach screen as well as job offers/vacancies. An important part of the outplacement process is tracing unpublished vacancies.
To find new (non-public) vacancies, our job coaches approach potential employers directly (by LinkedIn or e-mail ). The job coach can also assist you with the applications.
We continuously seek and repeat contact with potential employers.

5. Aftercare
Finally, after the outplacement trajectory, you often have found a new job or are busy with it. In the last phase, you have regular contact with your coach to tell how it goes. You can also contact your coach for questions about the contract, probationary period, and terms of employment.

I approached Linda via TogetherAbroad for outplacement services in order to transition to a new career role. Throughout a time period encompassing several months, Linda provided expert advice on personal branding including developing a top-notch, market-aware CV, highly tailored job applications, and approach strategies with potential employers in the Netherlands. Furthermore, I found Linda to be highly knowledgeable in key related fields such as recruitment strategy, immigration law, contracts, labor agreements, and (un)employment benefits. Last, but not least, Linda is a great person with a lot of empathy for her clients, and it was a pleasure to work with her. I would recommend her to anyone who needs professional help with transitioning to a new career.

Linda is a big mind. She thinks about things that the rest normally overlook. The insight she has about the dutch job market can only be achieved through years of experience and persistence.

Her business savvy is complemented by her mastery of understanding the client's needs and requirements. For my career I could say, she was the “Mary Poppins”, who guided me through thick and thin and helped me to land a career in the Netherlands
