Lessons in Obedience, Faith, and Trust

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Sometimes it’s easy when in the midst of a challenging situation to doubt the Lord, but He loves you so much, and regardless of where He has you today, he always has your back. He’ll never leave you or forsake you (Hebrews 13:5-6).

If your career isn’t going well right now, find comfort in the words of Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Instead of being angry or frustrated about your career predicament, remember that the Lord has big plans for you, and part of those plans might very well include using your current situation to grow your obedience, faith, and trust. Ask Him, “Lord, what do you want me to do?” (Acts 9:6) Then, sit back and listen. He will answer you. 

Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7)

    I will be trying for an interview with a current transformer manufacturer this Thursday. Any suggestions?

  3. Robyn Feldberg Says:

    Jerome, Yes, I do have suggestions.

    First, do your research on the position, the industry, the company (what it does, its competitors, what people who work there wear, and the culture of the organization).

    Second, prepare for the interview thoroughly. Identify what skills and personality attributes will be most relevant to this employer. Write out 10 to 12 success stories using the CAR formula (challenge-action-result). Try to keep each snippet brief — just a few sentences for each. Identify questions you don’t want to be asked in an interview and figure out good answers to those questions. Identify what questions you’re most likely going to be asked for this type of position. Not sure? Try Googling the name of the position plus interview questions, i.e. “Factory Manager interview questions.”

    Third, practice, practice, practice.

    Fourth, dress appropriately, get to the interview 10 minutes early, and be nice to everyone.

    If you would like more assistance, I am available for interview coaching.
