A personalized approach to career coaching and a guaranteed lower coach to employee ratio ensures individuals get the time and attention that results in greater alumni satisfaction and faster landing times.

Everyone Needs a Coach

A great career coach understands your employees’ personal and professional goals and can provide the professional guidance that leads individuals to take the next step in their career journeys sooner.

Benefits of RiseSmart Career Transition Coaches

Every transitioning employee is matched with a certified career coach based on industry knowledge and fit — not just on geography. Regardless of individual career goals, your transitioning employees will get the motivation, advice, and resources they need to quickly move into their next, best job.

Greater Accessibility

Greater Accessibility

We keep your employees engaged and accountable through a mobile-friendly platform that allows them to contact their coaches anywhere at any time while checking job leads and managing job search progress. A 80% lower candidate-to-coach ratio provides transitioning employees with 3X more coaching time.



The longer between notification and outplacement services, the more likely impacted employees will spend their time on less positive pursuits – like posting comments on employer review sites. We’ve shortened the time to engagement to 24 hours to get impacted employees market ready faster.

Customized Coaching Sessions
