"API’s support, knowledge and skills were invaluable to our entire team"
There was comfort knowing that the API team was well versed in the outplacement process. They were counselors, psychiatrists, mentors, and friends. Their support, knowledge and skills were invaluable to our entire team. As a participant, the structural and emotional support was outstanding—from writing resumes to guiding our self-discovery and soul searching.
"API's outplacement assistance was invaluable."
As our organization faced impending closure, we looked to API to act as the guiding hand for our members during their transition. API was ready immediately to provide the advice needed as our team faced the challenge of redirecting their careers. It's hard to put a price tag on that, but I can tell you that API's assistance—both in the early days and over the course of several months—was invaluable.
"API thoroughly knows the aviation industry"
I'm a big supporter of outplacement services for people impacted by downsizing. API thoroughly knows the aviation industry, the marketplace and the intricacies of the outplacement arena. A perfect combination!
By partnering with API's Outplacement Specialists you...
See what our Outplacement Participants are saying
"API helped me find a great job after my company closed its doors. I am very grateful for their help."
"This was the best investment my company could have made on my behalf. I feel like I have direction and support.
"I appreciate the forward-looking perspective you brought to us corporately and to me individually!"
"You were awesome and really made me feel better about this whole situation!"
What to expect with outplacement
The API team engages with its participants in a caring and collaborative way, via in-person meetings and video technology.
What’s more, all workshop training materials are accessible via a secured website, to help ensure your privacy.
Many downsized employees fall into a fragile state of mind, which further impedes their ability to move quickly and assuredly in the direction of finding a new job.
Because our motto is ‘It’s About People™,’ we’ve really trained our focus on the all-important emotional component, investing the time to understand what makes each situation unique.
Work with API
We encourage participants to become API Registered Professionals™. This helps us determine if they’re eligible for our client project positions. Registering with us can also help bring job search goals and experience into focus.
Resume and cover
API offers resume templates designed to make it past an electronic scanner, and ultimately into the hands the aviation hiring manager.
In addition, our API team will also help participants write a tailored letter that highlights their experience and adds important context and color to their resume.
Often, outplacement participants haven’t had the need to stay updated on current recruiting best-practices.
Thus, an API coach helps them review and update their social media footprint, and ensures that they’re familiar with popular job application sites.
Mock interviews and support
In today’s environment, jobseekers are more likely to have a series of video interviews prior to an in-person interview.
Hence, one of our API coaches will help them to understand and gain comfort using new interviewing protocols and tools to their greatest benefit.
In business aviation, it's not about planes ... It's about People™
One last thing to keep in mind...
It’s very much a best practice that an employee’s severance package include an aviation outplacement service. We are here to help make that happen, and will use absolute discretion in doing so.
