The St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry announces that - beginning with its Wednesday morning meeting on February 21, 9:00 AM to noon, and continuing through Wednesday, March 21 - it will offer a new career marketing workshop titled Mission Critical Job: Get the Career of Your Dreams. At the first session, each participant will receive an outline of this new program.  However, the complete curriculum materials are available in an online book titled Mission Critical Job that participants can purchase for $15.00.  These online book materials include:

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

The new curriculum is designed to help participants develop skills that will enable them to continuously move their careers forward.  The Mission Critical Job workshop strives to guide participants out of their "comfort zones" to enable them to personalize each job search step to win not only their desired job, but also the career of their dreams.

"In 2017, the St. Jude Career Alliance Ministry helped to enable 54 job landings.  This is a 35% increase over the 40 job landings realized in 2016," said Jack Bick, Certified Career Coach practicing in Collin County, TX and the Mission Critical Job creator.  "We believe that this new career marketing program will challenge the participants to incorporate all the knowledge, skills and experience they have to offer an employer and sharpen their ability to effectively communicate these personalized assets."

The Mission Critical Job workshop targets three specific audiences:

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