C-Suite Executive Outplacement
9 Out of 10 Senior Executives say Outplacement was a “Waste of Time & Money”.
Outplacement is a benefit given by employers who are genuinely concerned about their outgoing executives, but according to surveys, most often, the outplaced executives report dissatisfaction, attending a few meetings, then moving on, wasting their employer’s money and their time.
Typical outplacement proffers networking as a primary tool to achieve placement. However, the senior executive is already at the top of their network, so networking for them just doesn’t work. It was never designed to focus on the senior executive; the techniques embraced are just too junior. The network they need are the hundreds of practice leaders serving the top executive search firms, who routinely place senior executives.
Executive-level searches are rarely if ever advertised and most often filled by recruiters in the top 500 search firms but most executives say they are only on file with a handful of search firms.
Our system is “placement-focused” strategies that succeed by introducing executives to firms and people that routinely recruit at the senior level (about 1% of all searches). This shortens severance periods, reduces employer costs, prevents costly and time-consuming litigation, and generates goodwill between outgoing executives and their former employers.
Just take a look at a few of the hundreds of testimonials on our principal’s LinkedIn profile and feel free to contact any of these executives if you wish.

Seth Bardu, Chief Financial Officer, United Negro College Fund
I was provided outplacement from my employer. I was aware outplacement left much to be desired. JSR was carefully vetted. They provided a detailed comprehensive process that included my introduction to the top search firms. Within a few months, this resulted in interviews with multiple organizations. I was busy every week with interviews. I ultimately accepted my role at UNCF. JSR was clearly the right choice.
Brent Furse, President & Chief Executive Officer, GeNo
Working with Jackson Stevens was worth every bit of the investment in time and financial resources.
David Neuman, Chief Executive Officer, GAEA Products
My company was sold. I was CEO, over 50 and highly-compensated, making Job change very stressful but JSR made my transition fast and painless.

Candidate Testimonials from LinkedIn
Dennis Gilman, Chief Financial Officer, Brownie Brittle
We sold our company and I was on the market. Traditional services just didn’t get the job done. We hired JSR. I was able to obtain a position that was near my home and did not have to move. It was fast and efficient to work with JSR.
Shaun Jacob, President, CHC Wellbeing
We conducted exhaustive research and found that most firms focused on the same elements, resume, interview, and networking, not marketing. We chose JSR and couldn’t have been more pleased with the final result. They have the same services as others but also connect the candidate to top executive search firms, which shortened transitions.
Kevin Hornish, Vice President, Talent Acquisition, QBE North America (12,500 employees)
“Most accomplished executives don’t build their careers by honing their resume writing, interview, and job seeking skills, they do it by delivering results. Engage JSR. They are absolute experts at crystallizing achievements with incredible detail from the 7 dimensions.”
Paul Rector, Vice President & General Manager, Lenovo
“In 4 months of working with JSR I have exactly what I was looking for. It’s an exciting, transformative job.”
Bill Yaeger, President, Elekta
I worked closely with JSR for a couple of months and they got my resume in front of hundreds of executive recruiters in various disciplines. The results have been very positive. I would recommend JSR’s services for any senior level executive outplacement.
