Vangent Launches New Career Toolset to Help Career Counselor and Development Professionals Give Job Seekers a Competitive Edge in the Job Search Process

Chicago, IL, July 20, 2010 — Vangent, Inc., a leading provider of results-oriented human capital and talent management solutions, today announced the release of the Job Excelerate™ Career Toolset, a unique career assessment, development, and planning tool. The Job Excelerate™ Career Toolset is designed to help job seekers—and those who provide career guidance, counseling, and development services to job seekers— maximize job search success. It is predicated on the need to help job seekers more effectively compete for scarce jobs, improve their prospects of landing the right job faster, and concentrate their self-development efforts on meaningful and targeted areas for improvement.

With the Job Excelerate™ Career Toolset, Career Coaches and Guidance Professionals can help job seekers:
• Objectively identify and understand their job-related strengths
• Map their Work Style strengths to today’s top careers
• Improve their resume to reflect areas of personal difference
• Pinpoint areas for improvement / leverage strategies for self development

Now more than ever, it is important for job seekers to stand out in a crowded field of applicants. While unemployment continues to hover over 9%, many experts feel this is just the tip of the iceberg. “Factor in over 3 million graduates, nearly 2.5 million people who temporarily took themselves out of the job search, and about 8 million individuals who are currently underemployed. In reality, the hidden number of job seekers is staggering,” says J.T. O’Donnell, Founder/President, and noted career strategist and workplace consultant. “It is imperative that people seeking long-term, fulfilling employment, understand and capitalize on their career strengths while shoring up areas where they are not as strong.”

The Job Excelerate™ Career Toolset can be effectively utilized by a wide range of individuals seeking to improve their career positioning including:
• Recent graduates looking to land their first job
• Those between jobs, seeking employment
• People looking to re-enter the workforce
• Someone who is considering a career transition
• Anyone wanting to improve their job prospecting success

“With the Job Excelerate™ product end users can now gain a competitive advantage in their job search,” says John Correll, Vice President, Human Capital at Vangent, Inc. “For Career Coaches, Guidance Counselors, and Career Consultants, the Job Excelerate™ Career Toolset provides a meaningful and comprehensive way to provide career advice based on a validated assessment and well-researched Career Development Planner.” For more information, please visit
