Second Edition of "A Bend in the Road - A Guide to Career Transition"

The DMA Group has offered Outplacement, Career Transition and Retrenchment Support programmes in a variety of Group and Individual formats since 2002, designed to meet the requirements of both organisations and staff affected by downsizing, restructuring and retrenchment.

Following the four phases of Separation, Preparation, Communication and Negotiation, the second edition of our book "A Bend in The Road - A Guide to Career Transition" was updated this year, drawing on two decades of Outplacement experience.

New in this edition:

  • An “Action Steps” section at the end of each chapter, helping the reader stay focused on completing important tasks as they navigate their way through career transition

  • 10 new sample “Summary” sections of a CV, aimed at assisting the reader with developing their own, to be used in their proactive and reactive job search techniques

  • Exploring Interim and Temporary roles – helping the reader understand the benefits, to both themselves and their prospective employer

  • Starting your own business - What to consider when thinking of "going on your own"

  • Some commonly asked interview questions and how they should be answered, including the P-A-R approach

If your company is considering the retrenchment of one or more employees and would like to purchase copies of our book in electronic or paperback format, visit and select the preferred option.
