Job Hunting…How to Make It Your Unique Search
“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.”
II Cor. 6:17
Do you sometimes feel like you are different from everyone you know? Do you sometimes think you are completely out of step with those around you? Does it seem like you are viewing the world from a totally different perspective?
Maybe you are. And maybe that’s not a bad thing. Maybe it’s because you are marching to the beat of a different drummer. Maybe it’s because your inner GPS (God’s Positioning System) is calibrated differently, and for this reason your job search journey will take a different route than others.
We are not robots. Neither have we been cut out using the same cosmic cookie cutter. You are unique. There is no one quite like you. Don’t be afraid to fly that flag.
Because of that, your job search will be as unique as you are.
- Sure, you will need a résumé, but your story will truly be your story.
- Sure, you will use some of the same search components to look for opportunities, but God will open unique ones just for you.
- Sure, you will be involved in interviewing activities, but your responses to questions can only be crafted by you.
Yes, your search is the same but different…
So don’t let anyone squeeze you into a one-size-fits-all job search mold. You need to explore how to express your uniqueness in all facets of your search. The Christian Job Search Manual can help you do just that.
- Have you used various assessments to identify the unique you?
- Does your résumé tell your unique adventure story?
- Do your search efforts capture your uniqueness?
- Does your interviewing embody an accurate portrayal of the unique package you have to offer employers?
Yes, you are unique! March to your own drummer! Express your uniqueness!
