Roffel gets people moving

Roffel (since 1959) is a training and consultancy firm specialised in outplacement.
Roffel = Rob Lit.
My job is to get people moving. I do this by finding out what they are passionate about deep down inside, and where they are in their development. Thus, I guide people in their journey to discover and further develop their passion.

My objective for outplacement is to find suitable work for the candidate. However, the candidate also has a responsibility in this process. This is why I believe it is essential to have a clear profile of the candidate and an analysis of the job market.

Many people are currently losing their jobs. People who lose their jobs find themselves in a completely different world. I know this is hard to believe if you still have a job. Initially, it seems like you have a long holiday and you finally have time for all your hobbies! I often hear people say: “I won’t get bored. I have plenty of things to keep me busy!”

However, once you no longer have a job and are sitting at home, reality sets in, and everything changes: You don’t have to get up early to go to work. You don’t see your colleagues. To make matters worse, you receive a rejection notice for every job you apply for, if you receive any response at all.   
Then you have the UWV (employee insurance agency) world. You are required to apply for jobs. You have less income. You feel like you have to ask for help. You dread telling your family and friends you have lost your job. Many people have difficulty with this. And, you have to do whatever it takes to find a new job.

Welcome to your new world! Nowadays, there is a lot more involved in finding work than just writing a good job application letter.

Speaking from my own experience, the clearer you can express what you want and what your skills are, the more likely you will find a job that matches your abilities and interests.
