We assist individuals who have become unemployed or are re-entering the job market as well as those seeking employment for the first time.  Assistance is  provided without regard to gender, race, creed or national origin and is in no way restricted to members of our sponsoring parishes.  There is no charge for our support.

Career Renewal was established in 1986 by a small group of individuals who were, for the most part, employed in the health care industry. Concerned about widespread "downsizings" taking place at that time, they banded together to support and assist one another.

Although we typically feature a speaker with timely and informative job search-related topics, the key value provided by Career Renewal is that we assign each job seeker Participant with an experienced Advisor.  The Advisor will "walk with" the Participant throughout his/her job search and offer coaching tips and advice on the search process.  Your advisor will be a friendly “voice on the phone” who can help you through the twists and turns of your job search process.

If you are interested in participating in Career Renewal, we encourage you to explore this site and to attend one of our meetings, which are typically held at 10:15 AM on the third Sunday of every other month.
