You sit in your car, running through your checklist one more time.

Resumes - check.

Business attire - check.

Rehearsed introduction - check.

Mentally and physically prepared to sell yourself to top employers so they’ll remember you among hundreds of other hopefuls - maybe not.

 

Job fairs are one of the best ways to share your resume and make connections, but they can also be hectic, stressful, and uncomfortable.

 

No matter how much time you put into your preparation, a bad day or missed connection can ruin your hard work — even if you are the most qualified person for the position.

 

Sometimes, even the smallest bit of mental preparation can help, which is why we offer to voluntarily pray with job seekers who visit our church job fairs. We have found that this short time of focus and encouragement can steady your nervous mind and boost your confidence.

 

Adrian Barrocas, a job seeker at the Calvary Faith Center church job fair in Rancho Cucamonga, had attended career fairs before, but the offer for prayer was something that surprised him.

“I’ve been to a couple job fairs, (though) no Christian job fairs, so it was kinda nice to have prayer before to prepare you mentally,” he said.

With this extra bit of mental preparation and positive thinking, Adrian said he was able to have a better experience at the event. As he said, “Having a good outlook on it (made it) better than most.”

Our goal is to make our church job fairs a positive, helpful experience for all of our attendees. To do that, we pray with you, help you rehearse your introduction, and give you the tools to succeed.
