Divine Job Search Help

Churches are helping the victims of post-recession.

A large number of churches across the U.S. are rolling up their sleeves and setting up different job-centered help for the unemployed. Meetings usually have networking opportunities, workshops to help with everything from resume writing to your elevator pitch, and others even provide a meal.

One “mega church” in Sacramento, headed by pastor Mark Godshall, holds four day workshops and programs in an area that has a staggering unemployment rate of over 12%. Pastor Godshall believes “It’s in these moments when you don’t have work when you can grow and make changes that need to be made in your life.” Besides a job-related focus, there is also spiritual support and encouragement–for those who want it.

In a time when hopelessness and worthlessness are feelings many people out of work have, church run job search workshops and programs may give the unemployed a more uplifting outlook. Have you attended a church run job search workshop in your neighborhood?
