There is no reason to spend months learning to job search. We'll help you develop the job search skills you need. Our material is online 24/7 therefore you can learn according to your schedule. Today we'll review material on resumes and master applications.
Tonight, we will be discussing needs.
Just what are needs?
Is what I think is a need really a need, or just a want?
What do I do when I have a need?
Why is it that the Church just does not seem to care about meeting needs anymore?
Needs Met is a Christian Non-profit 501c3 Ministry that looks for needs in our community and meets those needs through others that want to help meet those needs. Needs can be most anyting like;
services like BabySitting, Resumes, handman services etc...
God is our source for the meeting of needs, but God uses you and me to do His work.
If you have a need, please let us know and watch as God meets that need.
If you have the ability and desire to meet a need, God wants you! God can use you to meet the needs of others. But you have to let someone know that you are able and willing to meet needs. Offer up yor ability, resource, or talent that you have and watch as God uses it to help those in need.

Print the list of 300 corporations from my last show. These are 300 corporations, not companies. 300 CEOs for these 300 corporations met with the President early 2014 and agreed to do their part in getting America back to work. They are doing what they promised. As job seekers you have to do your part. Present to them the person who can get the job done. The right look, skills, work experience, education, ability to fit the climate of that company, and ability to communicate based on job desired. Go to these companies, preferrably as a walk-in and ask for work. Carry with you a resume, master application, business card, and a pleasant personality. You have been referred by the president of the United States. Make the President proud of our efforts.
