It’s no secret: lots of people are searching for jobs right now. Some folks have lost their jobs. Others have jobs, but want better ones. Career coaches, self-help books, websites, and other “guaranteed” methods all promise that if we only listen to their messages we can land the job of our dreams. Job search tips are helpful (we have a few below), but by themselves, they are not enough.

In this newsletter we’ll find some job search wisdom in the book of Ruth (with a bonus podcast on how to launch a successful job search). We’ll hear some helpful ways to frame the hunt that may produce surprising results. And we’ll learn about how one woman’s search taught her to love the process as much as the product.

God’s promise of fruitfulness is what gives us confidence that our job search is worthwhile. And Jesus is with us even when we’re filling out job applications. Read on.
