Focus Your Search

By: Lisa Fife

Searching for a job online can be overwhelming, with such a broad range of available resources to help you in your search. We recently talked about the importance of focusing your search on your specific areas of interest and only applying for positions you actually want.

Although some online job boards have thousands of jobs posted, from almost every field imaginable, this can make it difficult to narrow down your search to find the positions you are looking for. To maximize your time searching for your next ministry position, use job search sites that are specific to your area of interest, like ChurchStaffing.com. ChurchStaffing connects pastors and other leadership, and lay job-seekers with churches looking to hire their next all-star employee. Using ChurchStaffing gets you a step ahead, by narrowing down the jobs to the types of positions that you are really looking for.

Remember, spend your time and energy focusing your search on positions with employers that you are interested in.
