Finding Employment

One of the most practical pieces of equipment you need when seeking employment is a clear sense of being already employed. And you can have such a sense without mere wishful or positive thinking. God gives us the sense of working for Him. Scientifically speaking, His employment of man is the only employment anyone really has. Even when we are feeling secure in a satisfying job, God is our real employer. And you can gain a sense of your real employment whether or not you appear outwardly to have a job.

When you go for an interview, take your sense of being employed by God along with you. Then instead of a test to see whether or not you will be hired, your interview becomes part of your real job. The one interviewing you is seeking someone who will best fill a position in his organization. He needs help in finding that someone—and you are in a position to help him.

As God's idea, which is what man is, you express the qualities of the divine Mind. God is Principle; so you express originality, resourcefulness, integrity. God is Spirit; so you reflect spiritual discernment, spiritual understanding. God is Love; so you manifest the gracious love that identifies Love's idea. These are qualities with which you can be of service to your interviewer.
