Cape Town - There is such a thing as empowered retrenchment, according to Vicki Marais of Manpower SA.
She told Fin24 that there are practical skills one can apply in order to get another job. These include the correct CV format, how to do an interview and even how to discuss the reason why you left your previous job.
"Nowadays even great employees get retrenched. Many companies outsource off shore, for instance, or to other core service providers. This means even great employees are impacted," explains Marais.
