“You’re hired!” is what every job seeker wants to hear, including some of the brethren in the Local Congregation of Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Ecclesiastical District of Ottawa in Canada. To help them achieve their goal, a job interview seminar was held on July 3, 2021, spearheaded by Christian Family Organizations (CFO) officers.
With Covid-19 restrictions gradually loosening in the Greater Montreal area, some of the brethren were able to attend the activity at their house of worship while others at the confines of their homes through videoconferencing.
Sister Genevieve Montecillo, Children’s Worship Service (CWS) teacher, and assistant CWS choir leader who has managerial experience in the field of human resources, led the seminar. She discussed applicant etiquette, impactful responses to possible questions, as well as job applicants’ rights during an interview.
Brother Melvin Ibañez, resident minister, supervised the seminar. After which, he highlighted that whatever livelihood endeavors the brethren may venture into, they must put their full trust in God Who is the most capable of providing their needs.
Among the attendees were the youth who have been anticipating their very first summer job. “Having activities like this is truly essential,” said Isaac Paluga, organist, “to support yourself and not only depend on your parents, especially that it’s summer … it’s really important to have even just a part-time job during the summer, to be able to save money for the future.” — With reports from INC News Section
