Blog Byte: December 20, 2010 Outplacement Requests (Downsizings) All Industries

Many of you in the Group were interested in the post last month on the Monthly All Industry Wide Request for Outplacement Services. As most of you know, that means a company has announced a downsizing and they are providing Outplacement for their employees who will be cut. Yes, these are the same Outplacement firms that our Medical Sales Industry Uses too and also explains why resumes from Outplacement Services are not geared to our industry! You can read my earlier article off that link provided.


Outplacement Request for the following companies (as of December, 20th 2010)


BAE Systems plc

Defense contractor BAE Systems will eliminate 1,300 jobs across seven UK locations in response to the British government terminating aircraft programs to cut defense spending. There have been numerous rounds of staff reductions at BAE Systems this year.
