Every Monday evening meeting begins with a spiritual support workshop from 7 to 7:30 p.m., followed by a job search skills workshop from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

Every Tuesday morning from 7:30 to 9 a.m. a networking group meeting is held. There will be no meeting on Monday, May 29, or Tuesday, May 30, because of the Memorial Day holiday. All meetings are held in the Adult Education/OCI Room.

CareerCare supports all those who are in career transition either through unemployment, misemployment or a desire to change their present job situation.

In addition to the meetings, it provides networking opportunities with professional organizations, other networking groups, and job fairs; job leads from parishioners, other churches, other job networking groups and an online job board; and a group of volunteers who support the job seeker in their job search with industry-specific help.
