POTENTIAL JOB OPENINGS

To increase the pool of applicants for a job, many company often offer a link or webpage (with link or webpage names such as Careers With Us, Human Resources, Job Opportunities, etc.) on their website which identify current job openings available.  A job opportunity does not guarantee employment.  Some examples using common external links to find such job opportunities include but are not limited to the information following.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11

 LET YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY KNOW WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A JOB

Here’s an idea!  Send an email to your friends and family stating that you are currently looking for a new job.  Here is an example of what your message might say:

Hello Friends and Family,

Now that I have completed a training session at Christian Women’s Job Corps, I wanted to share with you that I am now looking for a new job.  If you or anyone you know has a lead on a job opportunity, I would appreciate your input and your prayers.  Please continue to keep me informed of any new opportunities that you might be aware of or can recommend.   I appreciate your help!

Sincerely,

Jane Doe
