Don’t Miss the Opportunity!

The New Year is a great time to assess your current situation and plan for the future. With that usually comes reflections and resolutions, and as you all probably have seen with the Great Resignation, many people have chosen to leave their positions. Many aspects affect those decisions, and for the rest of January, we’re going to be talking about …

Happy New Year!

As we close 2021 and begin 2022 I want to start by saying thank you for your continued support and interaction with us at Crossroads Career.  We have so much to be grateful for including meeting in person once again with our Atlanta conference this year.  It was so nice to see some of you face-to-face after several years without …

The Gift of Community

The Crossroads Board Retreat and National Conference came at a strange time for me. It was sandwiched in-between other travel, in the middle of my busiest time of year both personally and professionally, and I found that as I hopped on the plane I didn’t feel ‘prepared.’ If you’re like me, you always have these really ambitious ideas before retreats, …

Who’s Your Kitchen Table Job Search Club?

Searching for a job is exhausting work whether you’re currently employed or unemployed. I’ve done both in the past couple years, but I remember being shocked at how tiring looking for a job was even when I didn’t have other work. When I quit my job a few years ago and spent three months unemployed and searching for my next opportunity, …

Underemployed: When The Work Isn’t Enough

Underemployment is defined as not having enough paid work or not making full use of your skills and abilities. Being underemployed is one of the sources of burnout, our blog focus for this month. When you say “underemployed,” the first scenario seems to be the one that comes to mind for most: not making enough money. For anyone who has experienced the …

Your Time Is Coming

It has long been one of my favorite qualities about Crossroads that we reach people in all seasons of their careers.  Previously I have shared that I found Crossroads when I was disengaged in my current job (a vocational ministry job, I’m slightly ashamed to admit) and feeling completely misemployed.  The Bible says in Colossians 3:23: Whatever you do, work …

Can I Have Your (Enneagram) Number?

The Enneagram has been a buzzword on our social media pages and beyond with increasing popularity the past few years.  Many are surprised to know that it’s actually been around much longer. In fact, it originated in 1915 and was later ‘mainstreamed’ with the nine numbers we know today in the 1960’s by Oscar Ichazo, who placed them on the diagram. While …

Are you thankful…for you?

What are you thankful for?  As I started to reflect on this inevitable question through a Crossroads Career lens, I thought I would take a little different angle on how we might answer that question. Our Crossroads Career approach is grounded on love.  First, loving God completely.  Second, loving ourselves correctly, and third, loving others compassionately. So, this week, are …
