Valerie and her son, Nathaniel, are just a couple of the hundreds of people who have attended a recent job fair put on by Church Job Fairs. They enjoy going to job fairs together in general, however, their reaction to the job fair they attended at Calvary Chapel Phelan in the High Desert was more enthusiastic and uplifting.

Valerie commented, "You're not just getting your physical, monetary needs but you're also getting your spiritual need being met as well." She expressed that the organizers were loving and kind as well. At the end of the visit, the members of Calvary Chapel prayed for them in their search for employment. She said it was good because, "During this time, there's not a lot of jobs out there and you have someone here who actually loves you, wants to show the love of God to you." Her son agreed that praying for them and showing them God's love for them was not done at other job fairs and it was especially appreciated.

Nathaniel also commented that smiles were commonplace during the fair. "Everybody is actually smiling, happy. You don't get that at other job fairs" he said. Looking for a job is a stressful and sometimes disheartening undertaking. Nathaniel noted, "You can actually greet people. You actually meet more people." Overall, their assessment of the job fair held at the church was a wonderful experience. Not many people can say that. Attending job fairs in hotel banquet rooms, where you hand employers your resume and barely get a chance to talk to them can leave you feeling abandoned and without faith.

Church Job Fairs works with churches to promote job fairs attracting local, regional, and national employers. Their focus is assisting local churches in helping their communities find employment. Job seekers often attend these job fairs with less anxiety and leave these fairs with more confidence.
