Prayer and the job hunt
In the middle of a job search, one question can come back again and again—especially if the prospects seem: Am I really worth anything? But that doesn't have to be a demoralizing question if it is asked in the context of prayer. Prayer opens a new view of our worth and real resources—as this interview with employment consultant Dianne Hartshorn indicates. Dianne her husband, and a third partner own a placement agency in a large city on the East Coast of the United States. They are in their fifteenth year of business serving corporate clients searching for employees as well as individuals seeking both temporary and permanent employment.
Tell us how you see the purpose of your company.
There is a verse in Isaiah that says it for me: "The Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; ... to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound." This analogy to what we can do to help our fellowman in our profession fits. We do constantly preach good tidings to people who are transitioning from school into work, from homemaking into the work world, from institutional backgrounds into industry. They're often very meek about their ability, and we are able to share the news with them about what they really can do, what the opportunities are. Now, we're not always the ones who place these people, but no one has ever left our "deskside" without getting a sense of hope or some sort of spiritual food that can help.
