The Jobs Ministry at St. Thomas is a faith-based ministry designed to assist Job Seekers in finding meaningful employment. The Jobs Ministry does not guarantee Job Seekers a job, but provides the tools for finding employment.
There are three paths to support those in job transition: Community, Learning, and Networking.
- Community: Those in job transition gather to help one another by sharing job leads and contacts, conducting resume reviews, practicing elevator speeches, providing job resources and reviewing weekly progress.
- Learning: Various courses are presented during the year including: Job Placement, Six Sigma Green Belt Training, and Resume Reviews.
- Networking: Job Leads are shared through a Yahoo Group. Job Seekers who sign up receive daily and weekly e-mails with job postings that have been contributed by others in transition.
