8-Day Job Search Workshop

WorkFaith’s 8-Day Job Search Workshop (Boot Camp) is a Christ-centered program designed to equip students with the skills needed to conduct a successful job search and become productive employees.

Who Should Participate in our Workshop?

Many of our participants have struggled with barriers to employment such as:

•    Laid off after a long employment
•    Re-entering the job market after a move or raising children
•    Transitioning from prison or recovering from addiction
•    Or just been on the job search for too long and need some hope

Through our Workshop, participants are taught how to talk about their past to help an employer understand that their future is bright and that they are so much more than their past. Participants are also taught how to be great employees, how to thrive in the workplace, and how to grow in their faith throughout the journey.

Common Questions:

What services do you provide?

The WorkFaith Connection provides an intensive 8-day classroom experience, followed by an intensive 90 day follow-up support and coaching during your job search. Once employed, we will stay in touch with you for at least two years to offer advice and encouragement. 

Will you guarantee me a job?

The WorkFaith Connection is not a job placement agency. We are committed to working with you to find employment for as long as you work with us.

Do you have job leads or referrals with employers?

We have contacts with a group of employers representing a wide range of businesses and types of jobs.

Do I have to pass a drug screen? If so, then why? What if I do not pass a drug screen?

Yes. Most employers require a clean drug screen in order to gain employment. For that reason, you must pass a drug screen on the first day of the workshop. 

Can you help me find a job if I have a felony or misdemeanor?

Yes. Based on your overall conviction record we are able to determine which employers would be the best fit for you. Our goal is to help all of our members gain full-time employment. If you have an extensive conviction record or convictions that involve violence, theft or sex, it may take longer to gain employment, but it is still possible.

What if I still have questions about The WorkFaith Connection?

You are welcome and encouraged to call our office at 713-984-9611 (Dacoma) or 281-833-3435 (Travis) or 281-674-7383 (Reed).
