In a world of economic instability, failing businesses, job losses, home foreclosures and more; our local community has been very blessed. We have a reason to rejoice! When I have researched job postings for our area, I am encouraged!
So, with that being said, I have decided to start this blog by posting jobs that are available in our surrounding area, both telecommuting and commuting positions. This is to assist the unemployed or underemployed in finding the right job fit so they will feel they are contributing to the economy; not to mention being a blessing to others, their churches and their favorite charitable organizations.
Each week, I will post a few job openings in different categories; including tips on how to write resumes and cover letters, how to interview, how to dress, etc. I will use many different resources to help you make your job search successful and you chose what best fits your personality. So keep checking back from time to time, to see job postings, resume & cover letter tips, my blog and more!
Happy job hunting!
