Does it really make sense which company you choose to provide recruiting services? I would say yes. When you select a Recruiter, you want one that understands the needs of the Hiring Manager. One of my core responsibilities in human resources was to oversee the recruiting efforts of the organization. To be an effective recruiter, you must fully understand the job description for which you’re recruiting. Secondly, you must understand the companies’ culture. Thirdly, you must understand the team dynamics to ensure the person hired is a fit for the organization. Equally important is the candidate feeling like they made the right career move.

When America experienced the severe economic downturn in 2008 many companies were forced to eliminate positions. Companies did not enter into these decisions lightly. Fortunately, more and more companies are providing outplacement services to assist employees during this dramatic career transition. We’ve often heard the difference between a minor and major surgery is it's minor surgery if it happens to someone else and major surgery if it happens to me. I think you would agree; if you’ve been told your job is being eliminated you’ve just experienced major surgery first hand.
Since August 2008 Clark's Consulting Connection, LLC have assisted more than 700 individuals in areas such as dealing with the emotional impact of loosing a job, resume preparation, interviewing skills as well as the latest networking techniques. During the past 30 years the Founder has had the opportunity to work in manufacturing, banking, non-profit, robotics, real estate, renewable energy as well as high performance work teams. Because of his Human Resource role he was responsible for coordinating and communicating that a person’s position was being eliminated. This was not easy. Van would say "I relate very well to the displaced employees" because he also has been told his position was being eliminated. Outplacement is not easy for the person delivering the message or receiving the message.

One of the most important things an impacted individual can understand during this time is you have a job and that is to find a job.
