Published 12:00 am Saturday, June 18, 2016
“Charting Your Career Course” on Saturday, June 25, will be a four hour orientation of the Jobs for Life approach as well as a sample of the types of classes, all built around a travel theme. Participants choose three workshops from a list that includes: “Rules of the Road” (Interviewing Skills), “Destinations, Detours and Dead Ends” (Vocational Planning), “The Road BEST Travelled” (Customer Service), “Journey with Joseph” (The Ideal Employee), “Bridges and Barriers” (Communication and Conflict Resolution), “Travelogues and Trip Ticket” (Resume Writing), and “Knowing Your Vehicle” (Personality, Values, Skills and Interests) A lunch will follow for church leaders who are interested in being Covenant Partners.
In additional to potential students, church ministers and lay leaders have been invited to learn more about the program and partner with Salisbury Jobs for Life to help their own members through job transitions. Up to 20 churches will be identified as Covenant Partners whose benefits will include pre-registration, regular network workshops, and access to the private Salisbury Jobs for Life Facebook group that lists hundreds of jobs, career articles and other helpful materials.
Salisbury Jobs for Life is looking for congregations from all faiths and denominations who are interested in helping their members as they go through any kind of job transition – be they entry level or professional jobs. The partnership is open to those churches who are committed to restoring people’s dignity and purpose, empowering persons to dream, equipping others to provide for themselves and their families, and integrating a faith background in life and work.
“Charting Your Career Course” is scheduled June 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the First Ministry Center of First Baptist Church, 220 N. Fulton Street in Salisbury. A continental breakfast will be served and a lunch will be provided for church leaders from 12:15-1:00 p.m. To make reservations, contact Rod Kerr or Lisa Kluttz at 704-633-0431 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
