Abstract: This study is performed to compare current Korean outplacement programs to find out effective support methods for retired middle aged workers due to restructuring. From the results, the paper suggests the following. First, conducting advance outplacement education program before retirement should be presupposed. Second, the outplacement program should be developed on the basis of national competency standards (NCS). Third, the ways of enhancing easy access of the retirees should be explored by systematical networking job change based on the job information and recruiting and job-seeking sites which are operated individually by industry sectors.

Keywords: outplacement; career transition; middle-age retiree; elderly retiree.
