Outplacement

As an outplacement coach, I was responsible for working with people who had recently lost their job. I helped them to stay motivated in finding a new direction on the labour market, helped them to draw up a suitable cv and cover letter and explore new training options.

In this context, I also took care of the workbook and information documents and I drew up and regularly adapted a package of information for those who wished to start up their own business.

Integration & newcomers

Newcomers who wish to settle in Flanders and Brussels need to follow an integration procedure. I participated in this through my job as a ‘trajectbegeleider’ (counsellor). As such, I helped asylum seekers and people that were part of a procedure for family reunion find their way in Belgian (and Brussels) society and register for suitable Dutch language courses and professional training courses.
