It is possible to shorten this time period by as much as a third. An outplacement program is a process that assists professionals who have to leave their company. It takes just 4.2 months for someone to find a job. This is a record-breaking time in recent years. According to ManpowerGroup data for 2021, 31% of candidates have spent less than three months. They work an average of 25-35 hours per week and get six noes prior to the yes.

Instead, we accompany him and do a direct search on the market, talk with companies, know what they need, and then we capture employment opportunities," he said.
Each participant is assigned a consultant who guides and assists them in managing their transition and accelerating their market connection. To help them get hired, they are taught how to build a digital and personal brand. They also learn how to manage their contacts to ensure that they are prepared for interviews.

A typical worker who uses the outplacement programs is around 46 years old, with a minimum of 10 years service in his previous position and around 22 years professional experience in middle management. They haven't experienced any changes in their professional careers in the past seven years, and this is the first time they've taken advantage of an outsideplacement program (87%).
