Vantage Knows Career Development

The Vantage Team is experienced in facilitating career transition and job searches resulting from organizational change, including re-organization, downsizing, redeployment, relocation, retirements  and Reductions in Force (RIF). Our team has performed career transition work for several Federal agencies, most recently the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency Bureau of Public Debt and the U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency.

Vantage’s career development counselors and coaches are also highly skilled and experienced. In fact, we use many of the same coaches and counselors for executive leadership and career development programs because they are equally adept in both disciplines. Additionally, Vantage’s counselors and coaches are very skilled trainers who teach a variety of workshops to strengthen career development skills.
