Career guidance can be a valuable resource for job seekers as they navigate the often-complex process of finding a job. With the right guidance and support, job seekers can identify their strengths and interests, discover new career opportunities, and develop the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in their chosen field. At Crossroads we have a few ways to do this but one of them is with the online Chat. We have a team of volunteers that help navigate job seekers and provide resources and guidance in a live format. We have had a chat on our website for several months but are now going to upgrade it.
In 2023 Crossroads Career is going to be building out a new chat system both on the desktop and on the app. By building out the robustness of the chat system, and engaging volunteers to man it live, we can better meet job seekers wherever they are in their transition.
Opportunity for Connection
I remember chatting with a college age women who wasn’t sure about her future. She was confused about her major and didn’t really have an outlet to talk to about her career. We connected on the chat and she received guidance and prayer. At the end of the chat she expressed how thankful she was and how a simple conversation changed her outlook.
As a Christian, it can be helpful to remember that your career path is ultimately in God’s hands. Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds us to trust in the Lord with all our hearts and to submit to him in all our ways. When we do this, he will make our paths straight. This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t seek out career guidance or put in the work to achieve our goals, but it does mean that we can trust that God has a plan for our lives and that he will provide us with the guidance and direction we need.
Our chat system is another way for you to engage with Crossroads Career in helping you on your career path.

If you would like to help volunteer on the chat, please contact our Support team for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
