At its weekly Wednesday morning meeting on June 3, the St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry will begin offering its "fast track" curriculum for the seven-step series based on the Crossroads Career(R) Network Program, a nationwide Christian-based job-search process.  The "fast track" curriculum consolidates the seven-step series into four three-hour sessions to speed up job search success.  A fifth session - a three-hour comprehensive review - has been added to enable participants to fill in and complete any topic areas they might have missed during one of the earlier sessions.

"To date, our seven-step Crossroads Career series has helped more than 225 unemployed participants to land new jobs," said Jack Bick, Volunteer Coordinator for the St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry. "Since we introduced our 'fast track' curriculum series in July 2014, we have discovered that it can be equally enriching for college students and those already involved in the career advancement process."

The St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry Crossroads Career "fast track" curriculum series will be open to all.  Participants will be required to purchase a Crossroads Career workbook for $15.00.

The five-week Crossroads Career "fast track" curriculum will be presented at St. Jude Parish in Allen, TX on five successive Wednesdays at 9 a.m., beginning on June 3 and concluding on July 1.  The seven steps and their corresponding topics to be discussed during each of the five three-hour sessions will be:
