Churches helping in the job search
In the current economy many people are turning to churches, temples, mosques and other religious communities to ask for help in finding a job. And religious leaders are responding with networking events and job-search advice. At Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church in Allen, Texas, most meetings for job seekers start with a short prayer. Nothing fancy, just a reminder that you are in a house of worship. As many as 25 people of all faiths meet every other week at the Baptist church that began its program in 2008. They come to talk about current job searches, pray for guidance in upcoming job interviews and share family struggles brought on by prolonged unemployment.
