Another Vendor's Solution at Zero Cost
Do you find yourself in love with your current vendor's outplacement
solution, but realize you can't cover as many people as you'd
like due to cost? Is your current solution limited to certain
levels of employees, or is it focused on certain types of separations?
These are common realities.
We know what it's like and we can help fill those gaps with
our zero cost ultra-outplacement/transition services solution.
You get the best of both worlds — you keep your current vendor,
but also extend valued services to the rest of your workforce.
Almost instantly, you will have expanded your services to cover
100% of your workforce, regardless of reason for separation,
role, or any other limiting factor. Plus, you get all the added
benefits associated with universal coverage such as optimal
savings in unemployment compensation costs.
Solutions for Added Customer Benefit
Add even greater value to your portfolio of services by bundling
multiple solutions. Our zero-cost standard solutions are a great
value and will likely meet all of your needs. But for those
who want more personalization or have unique requirements, we
offer special pricing when you bundle branded or customized
versions of our outplacement/transition services with our job
interview coaching solution. Contact us for details.
We are serious about our focus on social responsibility.
Bringing outplacement to the masses and helping people get and
stay employed is in our DNA. We will go out of our way to make
our solutions so attractive that you can't resist adding them
to your service offerings.
Getting started is easy and more than likely, our zero-cost
options will be a perfect fit. See for yourself ... get a demo
and discover how easy it is to be part of the solution. We'd
love to have you as a partner in our quest.
This feature is available with our branded and customized
solutions. The role-based content feature lets you seamlessly
deliver unique content to your users based upon their login
credentials; all within a single portal. It's like having two
or more portals for slightly more than the cost of one. This
is a great feature for organizations wanting to serve targeted
content to specific user segments, e.g., management vs. non-management,
unique market or client categories, etc. It's available with
our branded and custom solutions.
For a small additional cost, you get the ability to decide
which user segments see certain types of content or have access
to specific features. Ask us to show you this feature during
a demo and you'll instantly see lots of uses for this unique
Option (or Fee-for-Service)
We're proud about being the world's first to offer subscription-based
outplacement and transition services. Like Microsoft, Apple,
Amazon, and so many others, we're strong proponents of the subscription
payment model. Of course, it doesn't hurt that it's the most
common model for other employee benefits.
Used for our branded and customized ultra-outplacement and
interview coaching solutions, the subscription model is our
lowest cost option. It allows us to spread our already low costs
among large numbers of clients. Things like billing, controlling
user utilization, and a bunch of other infrastructure requirements
shrink, which results in even lower costs. It also helps that
Job Hunter Pro has always had a hyper low-cost virtual business
model. No "bricks and mortar" for us ... those costs would have
to be passed on to customers and that would be a bad thing.
The subscription option gives you unlimited on-demand services.
It's easy, inexpensive, and puts you in charge of how, when,
and why you use services. It also makes budgeting a snap.
When you learn about the cost savings and benefits of our
subscription option, we think you'll be a proponent as well.
However, if you're a fan of fee-for-service, we can charge for
our solutions on that basis and still save you lots of money.
An important part of our business philosophy is to give back
to the communities we serve. Bringing outplacement to the masses
is a component of that philosophy. If you're a 501(c) organization,
e.g., operated for charitable, religious, education, scientific,
or similar purposes, we have a premium self-service outplacement/transition
services program that provides unlimited access at no cost.
This is a full-featured program that should be considered
a must for any nonprofit wanting to help people (internal or
external) get and stay employed. It includes features that help
contain unemployment compensation costs, mitigate risk, and
contribute to an organization's commitment to social responsibility.
The self-service plan can be bundled with one-on-one job
search counseling at very low rates. If you prefer, these services
can be provided internally or via a third-party of your choice.
You get the ultimate in flexibility.
Veterans Transitioning to the Civilian Workforce
Veterans are recognized for many positive traits, including
leadership, teamwork, technical savvy, discipline, and ability
to perform under pressure. Most of the skills developed in the
military can readily carry over to duties and responsibilities
in the civilian sector. Understanding cultural and administrative
differences can make the transition much easier.
Job Hunter Pro has developed tools and resources to help
veterans translate their military education and training to
civilian equivalents so they can capitalize on their military
accomplishments. At zero cost, organizations supporting veterans
can use a special premium edition of Job Hunter Pro's transition
services tools in order to help prepare veterans for the job
search challenges ahead. For those wanting to personalize our
solution, low cost branding and customization are also available.
Job Hunter Pro is headquartered in San Diego, CA, which has
a large military presence. This is just one of the ways we give
back to the communities we serve.
Employees — Cost Containment and More
Gain a competitive hiring advantage, reduce unemployment costs,
and enhance your brand. You get these benefits because Job Hunter
Pro's ultra-outplacement/transition services program covers 100%
of your separating employees, regardless of position or reason for
leaving ... all at little or no cost. You can't lose.
Outplacement for seasonal and other short-term employees can
help you create customer loyalty and achieve significant bottom-line
savings. Organizations in the retail sector can gain the most, but
the strategy applies to any organization hiring significant numbers
of short-term employees
As a retailer, you value your seasonal employees as service providers,
ambassadors, and future customers. When their employment ends, you
want them to have positive feelings about your organization and
your brand. Indeed, having a reputation as a caring employer is
a key ingredient of a successful human capital and business strategy.
The retail industry annually adds between 600,000 and 900,000
seasonal employees during the holiday shopping season. This adds
up to a lot of potential future customers and employees. It can
also add up to a lot of unemployment compensation costs for those
whose employment is terminated.
An Outplacement Program Designed for the Retail Sector
Having had HR experience in the retail sector, we know what it's
like to work through the seasonal hiring cycle. We recognize some
seasonal employees are students or people simply looking to supplement
their income during the holidays. But we also know many are like
any other person who becomes unemployed or under-employed. They
want help finding a good job.
This unique demographic requires a totally new approach to outplacement.
One that looks at all these variables and is structured accordingly
... a program that benefits employer and employee alike. Job Hunter
Pro will help in attracting seasonal employees, and in reducing
unemployment compensation costs when they leave.
Helping people get and stay employed is good for business and
it's good for the economy. It's fits well with any organization's
goals that support social responsibility.
for the Digital Generations
Self-service models fit very well with most service, business
development, and cost management strategies. Solutions that are
100% self-service offer the ultimate in easy and cost-effective
HCM services. The content, tools, and options are similar to full-service
solutions, but whether you include or offer one-on-one support services
is up to you.
Employee self-service has become a popular and increasingly expected
feature among employees. A recent survey by Paychex, Inc. (approximately
650,000 clients) reported that seventy-one percent of employees
agree that they expect employers to provide them with a high level
of employee self-service that allows them to accomplish various
HR tasks on their own.
Advantages of Our Self-Service Solutions

optimal self-service experience

For those wanting one-on-one job search coaching as part of their

This gives you great flexibility.
- Job Hunter Pro can arrange job search consulting services
- You may select a third-party provider of consulting services

Every organization has a unique employee population and not all
have the same level of need for job search support. Job Hunter Pro
has been designed with flexible learning paths in order to accommodate
users at all levels of job search experience and from entry level
to senior management.
Development Strategies for any HR Service Provider
Whether you're a HRO, PEO, payroll company, RPO, career site,
ASO, MSP, Staffing Firm, Association, Benefit Broker, COBRA Administrator,
or HR Consultant, ultra-outplacement and transition services can
work for you.
As an HR service provider, you are well-positioned to offer outplacement,
transition, and staffing support services. It's a natural win/win
fit for you and your customers. You gain an additional service offering
and your customers enjoy the benefits, cost-savings, and ROI associated
with valued HCM solutions.
Close as Possible to the Origin of Customer Need
Few things give you a greater competitive advantage than being
first to know about a need. Employee turnover (voluntary or otherwise)
and changes in employee status (promotions, transfers, etc.) are
the catalyst for recruiting efforts, benefit changes, and a host
of other HR activities. Because it covers 100% of the workforce,
ultra-outplacement and transition services get HR service providers
as close as possible to the origin of such needs.
Your Value Proposition
Whether you have employees, customers, members, clients, partners,
or other constituents, you can enhance your value proposition by
adding outplacement and transition services to your service portfolio.
Move beyond any preconceived notions you may have about the cost
or complexity of outplacement services. We make implementation and
strong ROIs easy.
Up Client Money for Other Services
HR service providers can substantially improve their clients'
unemployment compensation experience ratings, thereby reducing SUTA/SUI
taxes and saving them substantial amounts of money. Reducing a client's
cost frees up cash for other valued products and services.
Your Role as a Trusted HR Advisor
Most organizations already have an established relationship with
an HR service provider. It's a natural fit and easy for established
HR partners to extend new HR solutions to their clients. They also
can take advantage of their economies-of-scale to bring unprecedented
buying power and savings to their clients.
Click the link below for a copy of an article published on LinkedIn
that provides more information about benefit brokers, HROs, PEOs,
and staffing firms as outplacement providers. Most of the concepts
equally apply to other types of HR service providers.
Compensation Costs and UC Tax Rates
Unemployment compensation is a significant
cost of doing business. Whether you're a taxed or reimbursement
employer for unemployment compensation (UC) payments, your long-term
costs are based upon your organization's experience rating.
Your experience rating is determined by the number and duration
of unemployment compensation claims charged against your account.
Over time, your claims history impacts your experience rating,
which ultimately determines whether your UC costs (SUTA/SUI)
rise or fall. See our
UC cost saving estimator for more.
UC laws are a bit confusing and vary from state-to-state,
but essentially employees who worked for your organization during
the first four of the last five calendar quarters (the base
period), can create future charges against your account. For
example, if they subsequently become unemployed and eligible
for UC benefits, your account can be charged for a prorated
portion of those benefits. This is so regardless of whether
you were their last employer of record. Further, it means even
employees who voluntary separated from your organization can
create UC liabilities for you.
That's why it is important to make outplacement available
to 100% of your separating employees. With a Job Hunter Pro
ultra-outplacement/transition services portal, it's an easy
process. You simply give all separating employees information
about their eligibility, how to login, and who to contact if
they forget what you told them.
Since Job Hunter Pro's ultra-outplacement and transition
services cover all separating employees, regardless of reason
for leaving, it provides optimal support in reducing both the
number and duration of UC claims. As a result, small organizations
can potentially save thousands of dollars annually. Large organizations,
payroll companies, HR service providers, and PEOs could save
millions. While this is a significant benefit, there are lots
of other benefits associated with outplacement services. We
cover many of them elsewhere in this website.

When employees feel they are being treated fairly and with
respect, they are far less likely to initiate job-related claims
against their employer. Although hard to quantify, this is an
important consideration. A single workers' compensation, wrongful
discharge, wage and hour, or discrimination claim, for example,
can cost many thousands of dollars. If the claim involves a
class of employees, it can easily cost millions. Preventing
even a single claim can become quite meaningful.
The overall risk management concept is simple. Just as wellness
programs, exercise, and diet can help people stay well, job
search, resume, interviewing, and related skills help people
get and stay employed. People with secure employment present
far less risk to their employers. And because Job Hunter Pro
covers 100% of your workforce, it has risk management ROI potential
that is miles ahead of what traditional solutions provide.
For staffing companies, there are similar considerations.
If your staffing company has a reputation for sending job candidates
that come across in interviews as more poised and prepared than
candidates sent from other staffing companies, what would that
be worth in terms of future business development? The long-term
risk associated with bad interview experiences is not trivial.
Our job interview coaching tools can reduce that risk and improve
There are many factors that go into the calculation of return-on-investment
for risk management strategies. While most people focus on the
financial considerations, the ROI increasingly includes social
and employer brand considerations.
for Your Organization
All of our solutions make it fast and easy to add users, but
Job Hunter Pro's custom solutions can include additional administrative
tools. For example, you may elect the option of having administrative
privileges which give you real-time management of content and user
features. Capabilities available with this option include:
- Login with administrative rights to access otherwise restricted
sections or functions
- Gain real-time capability to edit certain features and content
- Add, edit, and delete user accounts in real time
- Determine eligibility and length of coverage for user accounts
- Manage what types of content users in various roles can
This unique feature gives organizations the ability to exercise
significant control over their Job Hunter Pro solutions.
