Workshops for Downsizing Companies
When you announce your reduction in force, you want to immediately let it be known that your company will be providing outplacement assistance.
Equip and Empower Your Employees
Mir Garvy assists employees affected by downsizing or outsourcing—and has done so for Fortune 500 and Fortune 100 companies, as well as for mid-sized and small start-up companies positioning themselves for private equity placements, executive team changes, and mergers and acquisitions.
It takes a special kind of speaker to navigate the emotional climate of a room full of professionals who’ve recently learned they are being made redundant. As a speaker, Mir has been called “generous,” “articulate,” and “extremely knowledgeable.” She has seen, firsthand, that much of a person’s worry and frustration can be alleviated through the act of preparing for the impending job search. Questions are answered, fears are relieved, and next steps are outlined.
Resumes – This workshop for up to 20 people blends classroom-style instruction, interactive dialogue, and hands-on breakout sessions. Attendees bring a laptop and their old resume so they can work on the new resume in class.
LinkedIn Makeovers – This workshop for up to 20 people is a deep dive into LinkedIn, and covers topics like how to write your LinkedIn profile, how to find hidden jobs on LinkedIn, and how to network more effectively.
Headshots – For an extra fee, Mir will bring a professional photographer, who can take LinkedIn headshots.
One Day – One full-day workshop includes a morning session on resume writing and an afternoon session on LinkedIn optimization. This workshop does not include one-on-one consulting with Mir.
Two Days – Two back-to-back, full-day workshops: one day devoted entirely to the hands-on resume writing process and one day covering everything your affected employees need to know about LinkedIn and its importance in the upcoming job search.
Both afternoons are spent in one-on-one consultations with Mir. LinkedIn headshot photos available for an additional fee.
Through Job Market Solutions, reduced rates are available for companies who wish to subsidize in part, or pay in full, the fees associated with professional resume and LinkedIn writing services.
Rate reductions are negotiable, based on the number of resumes and/or LinkedIn profiles being purchased.
Employees – If you are interested in purchasing bulk services for employees who are being impacted by a corporate restructure, please contact us at Job Market Solutions.
