The Career Actions Ministry (CAM) desires to bring the love of Jesus Christ, during these difficult times, to Menlo Church members, their families and friends and all others who are facing the challenges of job transition. CAM is for both job seekers and employed “Good Samaritans” who want to help.
For job seekers, we offer a multi-faceted program of large group meetings, small Success Teams, and the opportunity to join a web-based service called the Career Actions Network. Start by attending a large group meeting. The aim of the large group meeting is to provide practical training on job search skills and networking.
