- Faith that Works
: Applying God’s Word to the Job Search is a compact how-to guide that pairs scripture with proven job search strategies. “Although employment indicators are more promising this year than last, job seekers are still likely to need a little faith to help them tap into the hidden job market to find or create opportunities that don’t already exist,” states Clay-Rooks. In addition to words of encouragement, the book is complete with advice on where to look for opportunities beyond online job boards, how to establish a personal brand, resume and cover letter samples, questions to ask in networking situations and interviewing tips.
Whereas other Christian books focus on helping readers to identify God’s professional call on their lives, Faith that Works
focuses on what comes afterward---how to pursue and make their divinely-inspired vision a reality. In their work, the authors often encounter clients who are disheartened by the job search. Clay-Rooks says, “the most effective job search strategy involves tailoring application documents, building relationships, persevering in the face of obstacles and being open to the move of God.” There is no doubt that Christians looking for a job or to make a career change could benefit from the Biblical inspiration combined with practical action steps in Faith that Works.
