Inside a Severance Package?? Anybody in HR

Nov 12 11 Comments

I left recently left a Big 4 accounting firm (advisory) to launch a resume writing and career advancment service. Huge success and I nearly hit my old corp salary ($91k) in 5 months.

Looking to partner with companies in 2020 to be their outplacement service provider as I think I’d do a better job than 90% of the shops doing it. Are directors of HR who I should speak with? Is this something that is actively reviewed on a yearly/quarterly basis?

    What does that have to do anything with severance?

      Severance packages at good firms typically
      include some sort of job seeking assistance. It helps from a brand/reputation perspective

    We used to review our vendor for these services on a yearly basis. Depending your target companies, I would speak with HR program managers, employee services managers or benefits managers who typically manage these vendors and contracts. Directors of HR may be ok for smaller companies but if they are at a large place, they hardly have any influence over the decision making process. They just extend what is handed to them by the COEs.

      It was usually March/April at my last company but I don’t think thats necessarily the case everywhere. Good luck!

      Completely useless unless you're really new to the industry and have no freaking clue

    I’ve been in HR my whole career and have never heard of resume writing as something offered in a severance package. I could be wrong but that’s very surprising to hear. I think there’s a huge b2c market for this though

      Interesting, it’s definitely a b2b side of the business and growing
