Martini Lunches And Outplacement What Do They Have In Common? My Job Search Pilot Brings Outplacement Into The 21st Century

My Job Search Pilot launches an online job search management tool accessible 24/7, along with experienced job search coaches and customized research and administrative support to meet the needs of each individual client.

Gone are the days of three martini lunches, typewriters, and dictation machines, yet most companies are still providing outplacement services as though it were 1969, not 2009! Let's face facts -- traditional outplacement services are costly for the employer and inefficient for the job seeker. My Job Search Pilot (, a newly launched service, saves employers more than 50% on outplacement costs and, as importantly, enables real world support for their valued, downsized employees. This new next generation outplacement service combines individualized coaching with tools and resources that empower the job seeker by improving their ability to find and apply for jobs, and ultimately get hired.

So, why aren't people getting jobs? “Yes, there are fewer jobs out there and competition for work is fierce. But that’s not the whole story," explains Kathy Carpenter, Managing Director and Co-Founder of My Job Search Pilot. “The reality is employers of all sizes have adopted new technology over the past 10 years that can present employment barriers. This technology has created a virtual 'black hole.' And now, with leadership focused on the bottom line and Wall Street focused on value, HR is being charged with doing more and more with fewer resources, while applicant flow has increased tenfold. These factors make for a very complicated and discouraging job search experience.”

My Job Search Pilot, a 21st century outplacement model created by Linda Projansky and Kathy Carpenter, is a People-First Service that uses technology as an enabler and puts emphasis on people helping people, making this service a win/win for employers and job seekers alike. My Job Search Pilot has an online job search management tool accessible 24/7, along with experienced job search coaches and customized research and administrative support to meet the needs of each individual client.

"We created My Job Search Pilot because we understand the new way companies recruit today,” adds Linda Projansky, My Job Search Pilot Principal. “We give job seekers the inside view they need to effectively navigate the process and ensure that they are able to connect with the right people to find the right job."
