Connecting to Employment
Once a team has helped to identify the strengths and skills of the jobseeker that have informed their list of job possibilities, the next step is to begin networking. For some people, networking comes naturally, but for others it is an intimidating prospect. Networking with potential employers is a great role for team members who enjoy being involved in the life of the community and who thrive on making connections and forging relationships. Networking within PFTW is focused on identifying where the jobseekers’ needs meet the potential employers’ needs. There are a number of ways to engage employers in the effort.
This section of the manual outlines the process for navigating and networking within congregations.
The next step in the Putting Faith to Work process is to support the jobseekers.
