With our current market trends, the demand for outplacement and career transition assistance from qualified resume writers and career coaches has been on the rise. If you have been wondering if this is something that you, a solopreneur, can take on, the answer is yes!
You may have heard me, CDI President Laura DeCarlo, talk about offering transition assistance programs in the past. They were fun and profitable for me when I ran my private practice, with opportunities to:
- Travel the country providing workshops for the Department of Treasury’s now dissolved Office of Thrift Supervision.
- Teach group workshops and provide individual career services to staff transitioning from companies, both small and large, ranging from grocery stores to software firms.
- Accept individual executive transition assistance contracts from large outplacement firms who wanted their client to have services from a local expert.
Resume Writers and Career Coaches ARE UNIQUELY QUALIFIED to Add Exceptional ROI to Companies Seeking Outplacement and Career Transition Programs.
When outplacement questions started showing up on CDI’s member forum and Fly Higher Tribe group, I immediately thought of one expert who was uniquely positioned to join me in a Q&A Zoom meeting to discussion the questions members are asking about offering these programs to corporate clients. That woman is Lotte Struwing of Lasting Solutions HR Consulting & Coaching.
Several years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Lotte Struwing at a CDI conference, and came to learn of her talents in the career transition and human resources space. When I saw her Lasting Solutions Career Transition Program, which had been developed as turnkey resource to guide career practitioners through landing corporate clients and offering these services, I encouraged her to enter the Career Innovator Awards. The panel of judges (former winners and other industry leaders) selected her program as a winner.
Lotte Struwing is an experienced business leader with significant expertise in senior level Human Resources, business ownership, and career strategy and brings a contagious passion for each one. Lotte is the President of Lasting Solutions HR Consulting & Coaching has been proudly serving clients since 2008. Lasting Solutions works with clients that have an “Employer of Choice” mindset, whether it is for HR, career transition, or leadership development.
Lotte has a lifelong learning mindset and holds her CHRL, 3 designations through WorldatWork CCP, CBP, and GRP, and is a Certified Career and Resume Strategist. In 2018, Lotte humbly won the Career Innovator Award through Career Directors International for her transition assistance program she has created for career practitioners.
Volunteering is also an integral part of who Lotte is. Currently, Lotte proudly serves her community as a Board Member for the Barrie Foodbank.
In her personal time, Lotte’s passion is her garden in the summer and the new winter hobby is snowshoeing. All year long, her passion is her family and friends who are family!
Lotte’s mission is to make a difference in someone’s day, every day!
