Life is Too Short
for a Job You Don't Love
At Faithful Career Moves, we know that you want a fulfilling career. In order to have that, you need to use your God-given strengths. The problem is, you don’t know what your strengths are and how they match up with job descriptions and business ideas, leaving you feeling like you'll never find a career you love.
But it doesn't have to be that way.
With faith-based career coaching, we identify your strengths and create a custom plan to help you find the career you were born to do.
What is the COST of NOT Using Your STRENGTHS?
Your strengths are your natural, God-given abilities. This isn't a list of things you need to develop. You already have these talents. In times of stress and in times of peace, you rely on these gifts. Knowing your strengths can help you lean in and access them to be more successful in life and in your career.
If misapplied, however, your strengths can be a hinderance.
More importantly, not using your strengths will leave you feeling depleted.
How We Work Together
We Identify Your Strengths
Through interviews and an optional formal assessment, we help you identify things you excel at, are naturally good at, and are driven to do.
We Turn Your Insights Into Action
Based on your strengths, interests, and aspirations, we create a custom career plan with the steps needed to find your next job or start a business.
We Keep You Moving Toward Your Goal
With a plan in place, we keep you moving toward the career you were born to do--because that's what we were born to do.
It All Starts With Your Strengths
Whether you are a stay-at-home mom who needs to go back to work or you're a seasoned professional ready to pivot, discovering your strengths is the first step to finding the career you were born to do.
Return to the Workforce
We Help Stay-At-Home Moms Go Back to Work with Confidence
Many stay-at-home moms don’t know how their talents and abilities match up with job descriptions and business opportunities, leaving them feeling like they have no skills.
But that's not true.
Time spent at home is often the exact training needed for a triumphant return to the workforce.
Make a Career Change
We Help Working Professionals Make Big Changes
Staying in the wrong job for too long can negatively affect your health and wellness, destroy your self-confidence and leave you feeling hopeless.
But there is hope.
Identifying your strengths will restore hope and help you find the career you were born to do.
Lean into Your Strengths
We Help People Connect Their Strengths to Career Opportunities
Most people have no idea that God expects them to develop and use their natural talents and abilities in the workplace, so they pursue careers without divine direction.
But there is a better way.
Claiming your strengths can help you see the Lord's hand in your life and in your career.
I'VE BEEN WHERE YOU ARE
Nearly 25 years ago, during the heyday of the dot-com era, I wanted to make a big career move, so I did what we had to do back then--I went to the library to get a book on resume writing. Amid the many sample resumes with the typical job history format, I found one called an "Accomplishments-Based Resume." It spoke to me. I used it to land what I thought would be an ideal job in Silicon Valley.
NOT AN IDEAL JOB
I quickly discovered, however, that this new job did not fit me personally or professionally. I felt trapped. Having only worked there a short time, I thought I needed to stay with the company for at least two years to avoid looking irresponsible. When I shared this concern with a friend (who also happened to be a recruiter), he gave me this career-changing advice.
He said, "Don't wait. Just be prepared to answer the question you are most afraid will be asked in an interview. In your case, simply say, 'Life is too short for a job you don't love. I know this job is not a fit for me and I don't want to waste time simply to demonstrate that I'm reliable.'"
His words freed me. I updated my resume and started applying for jobs with a better understanding of my strengths and the types of work I enjoy doing.. I got multiple job offers and only one person asked me why I wanted to leave my current job so soon. (She applauded my answer, by the way.)
PAYING IT FORWARD
From then on, whenever I heard that a friend or family member needed help making a career move, I reached out to share these two secrets--create an accomplishments-based resume and be prepared to answer the question you're most afraid will be asked. It worked every time.
SEEING THE HAND OF GOD
I'm embarrassed to say this, but only after years of helping people blossom in the career pivot process, did I start to see the Lord guiding my efforts as well as the people I coached. It should have been so obvious. But in my youth and ignorance, I thought the process worked because it made logical sense. As I got older and humbled by hardships, however, I finally saw the hand of God in all things and particularly in my career. This website offers a combination of career and spiritual guidance because I can no longer separate the two.
