Job Search Ministry Reboot

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” — Ephesians 2:10

 

Ready to reboot your job search? Come see where God fits into your search, network with professionals actively seeking work in NYC and learn the spiritual disciplines and skills to land your next role at Redeemer's Job Search Ministry. We are hosting two new programs on Thursdays: Job Search Round Table from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m and Job Search Skills Training (times below). 

The Job Search Ministry is sponsored by the Diaconate. Our main goal is to help our congregants achieve success in their job search, by instilling the values of confidence, productivity and a sense of wholeness. We believe that God intended to use our work to advance his kingdom. We desire to see our congregants engaged in meaningful work according to God’s purpose and will. This ministry is gospel driven and extends the Diaconate’s vision of mercy and justice.

For Diaconate clients only: One-on-one Job Search Career Coaching

 

Clients will consult with the Job Search Ministry for an initial assessment. Based on this assessment, we can provide career coaching including resources in the area of resume writing, interview skills, networking, vocational training, workplace issues, and more. Clients can also participate in mock interviews and specific workshops designed to improve skills. Those who are unsure about their career path can access career assessment tools (Strong Interest Inventory and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator). We realize that everyone has specific needs and we will work with you to gather resources in your specific area of interest. At this time, this ministry is open to Diaconate clients only.
