Outplacement Technology: What’s Trending

COVID-19 has forever changed the way the vast majority of people will work in the future. Outplacement technology trends have changed a lot, too, in order to meet the needs of the modern client and participant. 

This largely means a switch to virtual operations. At Careerminds, we’ve been providing virtual outplacement services for over a decade, adapting and changing our approach every time technologies and the job market change. 

So what outplacement technology trends are happening in 2021? Here are a few:

  • Virtual, Yet Personal, Coaching
    • Dedicated, one-on-one coaches work with individuals to understand their unique goals. Technologies like Zoom, Skype, Slack, and others make these personalized meetings easier than ever before.
  • Social Networking
    • Networking, like many other aspects of the job hunt, is now conducted solely online or from a remote setting. This is where Careerminds’ built-in social network comes into play. Participants can now meet up with fellow job seekers in a safe, remote environment then keep those connections on other platforms such as LinkedIn.
  • PerfectMatch
    • As the job search becomes more complicated thanks to increasingly sophisticated Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), PerfectMatch is here to help. With PerfectMatch, participants can gain insights into how keywords used by these systems can be implemented into resumes and cover letters to help defeat these systems, increasing the chances that a resume will get into the hands of a real human being. 
  • eLearning Platform
    • All great, tech-driven outplacement providers need to have self-guided eLearning tools for participants to help aid their job search. These platforms provide training, networking, webinar access, and much more for participants to use while also getting dedicated coaching at the same time. 
  • Until Placement Is Still a Must
    • All of these technologies fall flat if they are not backed up by undaunting support. Careerminds works with participants until they land their next role, which means that they will never go without support during their job hunt no matter how long it takes. Until placement support is vital to ensure all participants, regardless of tenure, skill level, or job position, have the time and resources they need to make a great transition. 

Outplacement technology in 2021 will be dominated by systems and platforms that bring people together. Technology, especially in the outplacement space, should serve to erode barriers instead of creating new ones.
