Item description for Devotions for Job Seekers: Daily Encouragement Along the Way by Richard Malone...
With rising unemployment and plummeting retirement accounts, more and more people are looking for work. While there are dozens of books about polishing your résumé and sharpening your interview skills, little attention has been paid to coping with the spiritual distress and feelings of hopelessness that can overwhelm you when you're searching for a job. Devotions for Job Seekers can help. This book features one hundred daily meditations, each one offering a pertinent passage from the Bible, a few paragraphs that focus on a particular challenge of being unemployed, and a short prayer. Ranging from very practical concerns to more profound spiritual matters, the meditations address such topics as letting yourself grieve, handling anger, reassessing priorities, overcoming the sense of being superfluous, and learning to acknowledge and embrace your dependence on God during periods of distress. Throughout the book, examples of Biblical characters who survived various job and personal crises bring to light the power of faith and prayer.

A Gold Mine of Wisdom and Encouragement. Apr 22, 2004
This book is easy to read yet profoundly insightful. The author very succinctly captures the truth of our emotional reactions to unexpected job change. Even though my career change was voluntary, this book has still been extremely helpful and encouraging. I highly recommend it to anyone going through career change, or even to those hoping to better understand a loved one who is going through such change. I find myself frequently returning to it for guidance and support. At a time when it is easy to be overwhelmed by task-oriented details associated with reconstructing vocational life, this book is refreshingly direct and practical. The wisdom contained in this book is well worth your time and money.
