Even before the economy began to suffer from the effects of the COVID-19 virus and the ensuing lockdowns and quarantines, many people face layoffs or unemployment each year. But in the first half of 2020, the number of unemployed people has skyrocketed. News reports like the following are increasingly common: 

U.S. job growth slows sharply;
long-term unemployment rises.”
December 4, 2020

If you’re reading this, it’s likely that either you or someone you know has been impacted by sudden layoffs, reduced hours, or joblessness in recent months. If that is you, we want you to know that you are not alone, that God still has a plan for your life, and that Crossroads Career has tools and resources available to help you through this crossroads moment in your career. 

First Things First 

If you are eligible, don’t wait, Apply for Unemployment Benefits now. Finding your next job may take longer than you think. It also generally takes one to three weeks to get your first benefit check, so the sooner you apply, the better.  

Crossroads Career has created a 7-step curriculum called “You Are Created for Good Works,” and it’s designed specifically to help you through the whole job search process. We want to help you hear God calling, maximize your potential, and get the right job. This 130-page workbook combines powerful biblical teaching with industry-standard human resources practices to prepare you to navigate your career crossroads. 

We also have curated over 100 resources for you. They are organized according to the 7 steps, but could be used separately from the curriculum and at any point along your journey.
