How can I take the most advantage from the outplacement services vendor? FYI - this was offered as part of the lay-off package.

They really livened up my resume


I actually received an offer the day after the layoff with a firm I had been interviewing with, so I haven't had to use the new one yet.

I went through this a few years ago and the best advice I could say, is 1) understand how long do you have to use the services and 2) make the most out of them during that window. I was originally cut off after three months, but I thought I had six months (and dragged my feet for the first few)…the outplacement agency worked it out, but I definitely was much more focused once I knew the clock was ticking.
