Are you currently employed but would like to advance to the next level within your company or land the job of your dreams, but are just not sure how to make this happen?  The St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry in Allen, TX will offer its Be Mission Critical: Own Your Dream Career in the evening beginning on Wednesday, April 3, 7:00-9:00 PM, and continuing through Wednesday, April 24.  This four-week program, which is designed to help participants crack the hidden job market via a pro-active, start-to-finish job search methodology, will be offered one time only. However, if this first evening career workshop is well attended, it will be repeated in the future.


“As the economy has improved, more people who are already employed are looking for advancement to the next level.  As a result, the job search environment is becoming more competitive and confusing with each passing month,” said Jack Bick, Certified Career Coach practicing in Collin County, TX, and the Be Mission Critical creator.  “A small mistake can cost someone a job.  This course will inform them what to do and how to do it.”


At the first session, each participant will receive an outline of this new program.  However, the complete curriculum materials can be purchased for $20.00.  These online book materials include:

  • 12 Be Mission Critical Objectives
  • 28 Helpful Work Sheets and Scripts
  • 91 Insightful Check Lists


The new curriculum helps participants develop skills that will enable them to continuously move their careers forward.  The Be Mission Critical workshop strives to guide participants to personalize each job search step to win not only their desired job, but also the career of their dreams.  Participants will build their confidence, communications, control, and consistency.  


The Be Mission Critical evening workshop targets three specific audiences:

  • Those Who Are Underemployed and Seeking Suitable Employment
  • Those Who Are Striving to Advance Their Careers; and
  • Those Who Are Endeavoring to Make a Career Change


Attendance at this career marketing workshop is free of charge.  It is also open to all people of any faith, ethnicity, age, etc.  Everyone is welcome.
