Career Partners International, one of the world’s most successful providers of outplacement, executive coaching and other talent management solutions, recently recognized two Madison area career consultants for their professional achievement and knowledge in the field of career transition.

Former owner of Career Momentum/Career Partners International – Madison, Clara Hurd Nydam earned her certification as a Master Career Transition Consultant. Providing career consulting, resume writing, and LinkedIn networking advice to more than 3,000 area job seekers over the past 20 years, Nydam continues to provide career transition services and leadership to the consulting team in the Career Partners International’s Madison and Milwaukee offices.

Mo Afshar earned his certification as a Career Partners International Senior Career Transition Consultant. Afshar joined the Madison office of Career Partners International in 2013 and continually receives top ratings from every career transition participant he serves. Prior to joining the Career Partners International team, Afshar worked as a talent management and organizational development consultant for major firms in Chicago, Dallas and internationally.

In addition to achieving the highest ratings on participant feedback, both consultants demonstrated mastery of the career transition knowledge necessary to successfully assist clients and program participants.

“Our goal is to bring value to the companies that hire us to provide outplacement services and that means helping their displaced employees achieve their career objectives,” said Cory Erickson, President and CEO of Career Momentum, the Madison office of Career Partners International. “Surveys of outplacement participants indicate that coaching is the most valued aspect of outplacement programs. Clara and Mo provide the kind of the personal guidance that’s needed to help individuals achieve success in their transition.”
