Finding that Next Job

Career Ministries

images-3Joe Jones of Career Ministries is the guest on Episode 12 of Job Search Radio on the Small Plate Radio Network.

Joe talks about the four stages of stress that a person goes through when they lose their job.  The first phase is a combination of shock, denial and isolation.  Stage 2 is anger and guilt.  The third stage is frustration which can lead to depression.  The fourth stage is acceptance, hope and the desire to move on.  Joe talks about the need to move through these stages so that you are in stage 4 when you begin interviewing for a new job.  If not, these stages of stress may show through during the interview.

A good use of time while going through these stages of stress is to think about where you are in your career and think about where you want to go.

Many churches around the country are now offering Job Search Workshops and weekly Job Search Support Groups.  Career Ministries helps churches set up Quick Start Workshops which may last 7 hours and weekly support groups which may go 2 hours.  Churches interested in setting up this service for their members should contact Career Ministries.
