The present study analyzes the capability that counselors providing outplacement consulting need to equip themselves with and reflects the tendency of the increasing interests in a change of job in various fields of work. Since few studies on the aspects and organization of a change of job have been conducted, the present study aims at investigating professional capability that counselors specialized in outplacement need to have and hope to support clients in the real counseling situations. A total of three surveys were conducted based on a Delphi-analytic approach. As a result, the present study draws 3 types, 13 aspects, and 55 indexes of the capability in terms of the real conditions of outplacement consulting and various demands for job seekers. Based on the criteria mentioned above, the study discusses the present conditions of outplacement and the future prospects.
