They're hired! Going to church to get a job - Feb. 26, 2009
I think lots of churches have job workshops and networking programs, don't they? I know I once got a job through my church, and it turned out to be a really good job that helped change my career in a positive way.
It sounds like you really enjoy your church--have you checked to see if they have some sort of job assistance program? Or maybe they know of one at a neighboring church that might help out?
