Your career: what now?
An exclusive, no-strings offer for Thomas Cook staff
Losing your job never comes at a good time. But beyond the stress, uncertainty and worries, there can be opportunities to find something better, perhaps something quite different.
Work Horizons is an online service for people who are motivated to take control of their careers and find their next position. It was created by a team of career and work specialists, who have extensive experience of helping people who have lost their job.
Membership is usually paid for by individuals or their employer but we are offering three months free to employees of Thomas Cook. We are in no way affiliated with Thomas Cook or the liquidators; we are doing this because we believe it is the right thing to do – just like all those Thomas Cook employees who helped stranded holidaymakers get home, even when they weren’t being paid.
Read on and see if Work Horizons could be right for you…
Everyone’s working life is on a spectrum, somewhere between total frustration and complete fulfilment. What about yours? With Work Horizons you can focus in on what it would take, for your next job to more fully meet your personal and career needs.
Finding a job is a job in itself. It needs thought, planning and careful action. Let’s start by considering the sort of job you want; where you will find vacancies; sorting out your CV and your interview technique.
Do you have the right attitude for running your own business? Have you got a great idea to put into action? Can you write a business plan? Let’s explore the advantages and issues of self-employment.
More people leave on the first day of a new job than at any other time. Let’s avoid this situation, by making sure you have understood what it takes to thrive and making work a rewarding, enjoyable experience.
About Work Horizons
Work Horizons is an online alternative to career coaching or outplacement support. It is a membership site which will help you to work out your aspirations and constraints, to prepare for and find the right work and then crucially, to thrive in your new position.
If you join Work Horizons, you will have unlimited access to articles, exercises, videos and other resources. You will find a mix of thought-provoking discussions, how-to guides and practical checklists. Work Horizons isn’t a structured course that spoon-feeds you step-by-step instructions; it offers you a choice of expert insights and new ways of thinking about your career and job-hunting.
About this offer
We are offering a free, no-strings-attached membership of Work Horizons for three months for employees of Thomas Cook and their family members. You do not require a credit card to sign-up and when the free membership period is over you will have no obligation to buy anything.
Your personal data will be kept secure; we will not sell or give it to anyone else, except as strictly necessary for providing this service.
What’s the catch? There isn’t one. We, the founders of Work Horizons, have all been through redundancies in our careers and are happy to be in a position to help others now. If you like Work Horizons and feel inclined to recommend it to your friends, that would be a bonus 🙂
