CV Advisory was created to help this demographic through its Engagement Readiness program. Tailored for those who historically have earned higher incomes, it provides the foundation for achieving income security, not job security.
“There are simply not enough permanent positions being created in this economy to meet the demand,” according to Charles Welnack, founder of the company. “This appears to be an irreversible trend. Smart people who can solve complex problems and give expert advice are needed only as long as they’re needed for a given engagement, but they’ll be well paid.” This paradigm is referred to by the company as ‘the new world of work’, with the underpinning that companies will engage the highly qualified on a project basis and hire those who produce and deliver the product or service at lower pay scales.
“Consulting has always been perceived as something done between jobs, but it has become the new normal,” adds Chris Cayer, who leads the CV Advisory curriculum and development practice and is the founder of the Reyactive Chamber. “Professionals are most comfortable doing what they do, especially if they came out of the corporate environment. They’re not necessarily entrepreneurs and find other income-earning vehicles like network marketing unappealing,”
The company offers comprehensive training, coaching and business formation advice, as well as the latest in new media techniques to give clients maximum market visibility. The program is tailored for credentialed professionals who earned a high salary in the prime of their careers. “There is still a demand for their services but they can’t approach it in the same way they looked for a job,” Welnack said. “The traditional career counseling and outplacement programs prepare people to find another job. Finding engagements requires an entirely different approach.”
The company supports clients nationwide.
