GARDENA VALLEY BAPTIST CHURCH HOSTS
“WINNING THE JOB SEARCH DURING A RECESSION”
On Saturday, April 27th, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., Gardena Valley Baptist Church invites the community to attend a free seminar, “Winning the Job Search during a Recession.” This is a great opportunity for individuals facing layoffs or those pursuing employment. There are many opinions as well as myths regarding the job search. During a recessionary period, emotions are additionally stressed due to feelings of insecurity, the unknown and depression. As with most overwhelming situations, seeking professional guidance is crucial. This seminar will provide guidance that is not only factual, but biblically-based and designed to address attendees’ specific needs and concerns.
Topics to be covered will include:
- Overview of the current job market
- Designing a plan of action
- Effective research
- Resumes/Cover letters
- Interview skills
- Mental issues (fear, anxiety and depression)
There will also be time for questions and answers to address personal situations.
