Week 1 - Moving Forward


    “But one thing I do, forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal…” Phil 3:13-14


    Get past the loss of a job, a career or a dream. Move to that place called the future.



    It is very difficult to have a successful job search if one is dwelling on the past. Feeling hurt, anger, bitterness, and feeling like a victim is not healthy nor is it good for a job search. Employers don’t often hire hurting candidates.



    We will see how moving to a positive position can and will affect the outcome of finding your next career position. We will suggest a few methods for getting past the “why” of your situation.



    - Why will bitterness hinder the job search?

    - What does the Book say about loss?

    - What can be done to get back on track?

    - Who is in control of the circumstances?

    - Getting past “WHY ME, GOD?”
