RiseSmart Transition Concierge Continues to Accelerate Pace for Putting Laid-off Employees Back to Meaningful Work Fast

May 29, 2013

RiseSmart, the leader in next-generation employee outplacement services, today announced new intelligence and capabilities to its award-winning Transition Concierge solution with the goal of putting people back to work faster than ever before. The improved Job Inbox for Transition Concierge builds upon the existing service providing a customizable, one-stop shop for users to find job leads, and organize and track all of their job opportunities. These new capabilities are further streamlining the job search process for users, who are already experiencing a time to landing in under 100 days, more than five months faster than the national average*.

“Discipline and structure are paramount to landing a job faster. It’s not just about finding job leads and applying to them, but also organizing and tracking those leads throughout the entire job search process that leads to success.”

“Putting people back to work in under 100 days is a direct result of our obsession with delivering a more relevant and effective approach to outplacement that keeps pace with the shifts in today’s workplace and workforce,” said Sanjay Sathe, RiseSmart Founder and CEO. “Our semantic job-matching technology gives us unrivaled insight into our users’ job preferences and readily matches them to all suitable opportunities. With today’s announcement, Transition Concierge now becomes the single destination for laid-off workers to manage and track progress on every step of their entire job search. This enhanced technology, as always, is supplemented by the most personalized transition services available in the industry. Every RiseSmart client is assigned a team of three dedicated, specialized professionals to personally escort them to the best new job faster. This powerful combination of high-tech and high-touch minimizes disruption to employees’ lives and employer brands better than any other solution.”

Transition Concierge’s next-generation job matching and career-resource portal, is now enhanced with an improved and redesigned Job Inbox. Transitioning employees can now:

  • Add jobs they’ve learned about from outside the RiseSmart System
  • Rate job opportunities (Love, Like, Not Interested)
  • Organize and track the progress of their job opportunities
  • Gain deeper insight into their job opportunities, such as company background and who they’re connected to at the company, increasing their chance of having successful interviews
  • Get even more relevant job matches, because the more they interact with the system, the more the system learns.

“Discipline and structure are paramount to landing a job faster. It’s not just about finding job leads and applying to them, but also organizing and tracking those leads throughout the entire job search process that leads to success,” said Rob Garcia, RiseSmart VP of Products. “With our new user-friendly Job Inbox features, people can find, apply organize and track the progress of each and every job lead from one central location. They can also directly connect with people in their network who can recommend them for roles in their companies. This type of efficiency really allows users to focus on researching, networking and following up on job leads, resulting not only in a faster time to landing, but in securing a job that really appeals to them.”
