NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- With the recent recession, houses of worship in Middle Tennessee are offering more career counseling.
The Nashville Ledger reports some of those offering services include West End United Methodist Church, Brentwood United Methodist Church, Mt. Zion Baptist Church and Jewish Family Services.
Each one takes a different approach to helping job seekers.
The program at Brentwood offers classes in using the Internet and social media to look for work. The West End United Methodist Church offers tips on resume writing and networking. Mt. Zion Baptist Church hosts a job fair every year. Jewish Family Services helps job seekers get their resumes to potential employers.
Mark Witzl, who found a job through the Brentwood program, said the programs provide comfort and support in addition to new skills.
