Beginning with its Wednesday morning meeting on July 12, 9:00 AM - noon, the St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry will offer a new career marketing workshop titled Discovery: Marketing My Career. Discovery follows a traditional marketing process because everyone who is looking for a job is in a marketing role whether they realize it or not. Discovery is designed to help make participants competent and comfortable in the role of marketing themselves and their careers.
Jonathan Miller recently landed a new position through his association with the St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry and Jack Bick, Certified Career Coach practicing in Collin County, TX, and the Discovery creator. "The time I spent with Jack while I was job hunting was invaluable," Mr. Miller stated. "Jack encouraged me to trust that God was at work in my circumstances; he challenged me to remember all the knowledge, skills and experience I had to offer an employer, and he sharpened my ability to effectively communicate what I had to offer. I am deeply grateful for what Jack taught me and how he gave me the shot in the arm I needed."
The Discovery curriculum is designed to help participants develop skills that will enable them to continuously move their careers forward. The Discovery workshop strives to guide participants out of their "comfort zones" to enable them to personalize each job search step to win their desired job.
The St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry will present the Discovery: Marketing My Career workshop 9:00 AM to noon each Wednesday for six consecutive weeks beginning on July 12 in the Lecture Hall at St. Jude Parish in Allen, TX. The specific topics to be addressed each week are:
