Individual Executive Outplacement
For executives wishing to invest in a highly personalized, and customized job search campaign, the Power Connections service is a very exciting alternative to the traditional outplacement program. Our service offers unique support whereby we act as an “Agent” on behalf of our clients.

Our program is not developed around mass email or mail campaigns or directionless and time consuming networking. It is based on creating a strategic job search campaign that is focused on making relevant contacts/connections, researching and studying companies and industries that are likely matches for the talent of our clients, and executive coaching and career transition mentoring to enable the executive to land in short order while at the same time, find a position that has the likelihood of a positive fit.

We can assist you by providing the finest career transition support program available at a fee structure that is incredibly competitive. For a confidential discussion about how we can support you please call Susan at 949- 285-9541 or email her at Susan@Powerconnectionsinc.com.
