Workshops

Helping you find that better fitting job faster (and more!)

At Job Seekers Network, we firmly believe that people who are pursuing work in alignment with their gifting, life goals and life calling will be more fulfilled and better able to adapt to changes in the work environment and world. Clear direction is also vital to a focused and effective job search.

Job—Career—Calling

At JSN, we do make a distinction between the concepts of Job, Career, and Calling.

A Job is the work or tasks you do on a daily basis to earn a living. As you change positions and employers, your job changes.

A Career is rooted in the concept of running along a specified path or course; therefore, we commonly use it as the term for the series of jobs we have along a certain professional path, typically on an upward projection.

The concept of Calling is larger than your career. When we look at the definition and its Latin and Greek roots, we see the concept of divine influence and our purpose or destiny in the world as spouses, parents, community citizens, in addition to our vocation or profession. It more clearly encompasses your “Life Work.”

Career/Life Planning Pyramid

The Career / Life Planning Pyramid shows the progression of how important understanding your Career Direction (through Self-Assessment, Career Exploration, & Decision-Making) and your Life Calling (Purpose/Mission, Fulfilment/Success, & Life Mission & Balance) is as you proactively manage your career and life. You can’t easily start your Job Search without first building a solid foundation in the earlier steps.
