Contact: Gale Tull, 610-768-2102, gtull@abhms.org

VALLEY FORGE, Penn., Nov. 1, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- On October 5, 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the nation's unemployment rate at 7.8%; more than 12 million Americans. Whether one is a recent college graduate or an experienced worker, the stress of a job search can be overwhelming. College career counselor Aaron M. Basko looks at the challenges and opportunities in a job search from a uniquely Christian perspective. To energize, equip, and encourage those who are unemployed, underemployed, or badly employed, he has written "Help Wanted: Devotions for Job Seekers."

This inspirational volume provides 60 days of encouragement and advice for job seekers and career changers. Using Scripture verses, practical suggestions, and honest anecdotes, Basko seeks to strengthen faith and renew hope during the job hunt. He also addresses this topic during workshops and presentations to churches, homeschool groups, college students, Christian conferences, and career networks. He has written related articles for several magazines and has been interviewed on radio and television. Among the topics addressed:

  • What role does faith play in today’s difficult job market?
     
  • What advice would you give new graduates about finding the right position?
     
  • What is the best way to cope with unexpected job loss?
     
  • How can I support a friend or family member going through a job transition?
     
  • What do you mean by having a sense of purpose in your career?
     
  • What is the best way for someone to discover what career is best for them?
     
  • Should being a Christian change the way you view career planning or your job search?
