Do you realize that you are God’s Poiema?

We believe that God gives strengths, talents, or gifts to all humans in creation. We also believe that God calls people in two ways: primarily to a relationship with God, and secondly to tasks and careers in response to that relationship.

To know and understand that you are a person of strengths and abilities brings a whole new perspective to your life and career. Our goal is to assist individuals in understanding that every person is God’s Poiema – God’s “work of art,” uniquely designed and created to fulfill a specific purpose.

Position: Nurse Extern in Women's Services at Erlanger

Early this semester I was informed of a summer externship opportunity for students entering their senior year of nursing school. The position I wanted in Women’s services, however, was highly competitive, and only 4 students would be chosen. I considered my strengths and previous work history and knew I was qualified for the position, but I wanted my application to stand out. I reached out to the Center for Calling & Career (CCC) and I am so glad I did. I met one-on-one to review (and perfect) my résumé. I learned how to utilize information in the job description to my advantage and use key terms that flag my résumé as a match for the job description. When I was given an interview for the position, I made a second appointment in the CCC to practice. Mrs. Thompson looked through the job description and formulated specific (challenging) questions that I could expect in the interview. She then gave me feedback on what was excellent and what could be improved. Weeks later I was offered the position and now have my dream summer job! Seeking help from the CCC was the best decision I made because it not only helped my résumé stand out and prepared me for my interview, but I also learned skills that I can take with me into interviews and applications in the future.
