Reentering the Workplace

The job world is constantly fluctuating, and new technology is being invented every day. This can be intimidating for a person who has been out of the workforce for more than a year.

Cindy was in her fifties when she divorced and had not worked outside the home in twenty years. She advises: "Look into different classes to learn things that will help you in the workplace. Women's centers have computer and finance seminars. Do what you can do to help yourself add to a resume.

Not only is it possible to survive, but it's possible to thrive in a career.
A good place to start in determining which job is best for you is to get help from a career counseling ministry. These organizations will help you determine what your aptitude is, what career you are best suited for, and how to get the training in that field.

If you already have a job, but it seems like it is not going anywhere, do not give up hope. Your current job could lead to another job as a result of your hard work, as a result of networking, or just because you are in the right place at the right time. Be encouraged, God's timing and circumstances are always best and are often surprising to us:

"He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us" (Acts 17:26-27).
