For private individuals

Today’s fast-changing working world makes great demands on the job-seeker. Flexibility and self-reliance, but also a high degree of individual responsibility, are indispensable preconditions for success. Moreover, a highly professional approach to the whole application process is absolutely essential today – both in interviews and in job application documentation. With our many years of experience, our proximity to the jobs market and our absolutely individual approach to advice and guidance, we can offer you a programme that is specifically tailored to your needs. Career transition is always a challenge! However, it also presents the opportunity to explore and make use of your own resources. We support you in this process.

The key to successful professional reorientation is knowledge of your own competencies, goals and limits, not to mention targeted placement of your talents. Using structured, tried-and-true methods in a clearly defined time-framework, Mäder & Partner ‘s new placement programme guides candidates to the new professional positions ideally suited to their talents and needs.

Every advice programme starts with the skills appraisal, consisting of a personal interview and psychological testing. This is followed by target-setting to answer the question, “Where do I want to go?” Successful achievement of the career goal is based upon the targeted placing of one’s own talent. Our service therefore does not just comprise advice, but also includes professional positioning and networking for the applicant.



If you know where you want to go, you can make a start: a fundamental principle when you are looking for a job. Professional positioning of your talents and networking are equally important. Not just offering advice in the context of career transition, we provide active job-search support, integrating you in our network, and placing your application with potential employers.

Our New Placement Programme comprises five modules, in a graduated structure which provides excellent preparation for stepping up to the next professional challenge.

In our career coaching, we always work on a needs-oriented basis: Costs are determined in advance, but the schedule and number of meetings are determined according to individual situation and requirements. All programmes are individually designed, with no limits on the number or the length of the meetings. The Mäder & Partner New Placement Programme is tailored to all seniority levels.

Personal reorientation


Everyone wants to ascertain the extent and nature of his or her resources. Awareness of one’s own abilities and personal preferences is a requirement for success in any field. People who know who they are, what they can do and what they stand for are more likely to achieve success in their professional and private lives. Especially prior to a transition into a new professional challenge, the key to success lies in knowing one’s own strengths and possibilities. This knowledge can be used to write a professional success story.

Our team of advisers uses tried and true skills appraisal coaching methods, working however in a very individual and resource-oriented manner by using a range of psychological test processes.

Successful performance is complex and multi-facetted. We deliver core advice on effectiveness in your current role and future roles.
