I have been praying with a number of people in the last 180 days who are looking for work.
I have recommended a few resources to these job seekers that have been extremely helpful and practical.
Micheal Hyatt has a free Life Plan that I highly recommend. It will help the job seeker clarify what it is they want to do with their life. Here is the link to it: Creating Your Personal Life Plan. He is worth following on a regular basis for his expertise in social media and setting goals.
A wonderful book to walk someone through a job search is 48 Days to the Work You Love: Preparing for the New Normal: Dan Miller, Dave Ramsey: 9781433669330: Amazon.com: Books. Dan Miller, the author, has an awesome networked community. Many libraries have his book for free.
Being out of work is discouraging. It is easy to lose hope. My favorite book of 2014 is: The Hope Quotient: Measure It. Raise It. You’ll Never Be the Same.: Ray Johnston, Dave Hoffman: 9781491522783: Amazon.com: Books.
