OrthodoxJobs.com – New and Improved Website for the Job Seeker and Employer
Aug 24, 2011
BOSTON – The Department of Internet Ministries of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and the Office of Vocation & Ministry of Hellenic College are pleased to announce the launch of the redesigned and updated web site www.OrthodoxJobs.com. Developed to serve Christian and service-oriented industries, especially Orthodox agencies, schools, and ministries, the improved site is now enhanced with resume and job search features. All job posting services for employers and job searching services for job seekers are free.
With this major update, employers can create instant online applications and pre-screening questionnaires, manage potential applicants and job posting statistics, and utilize other enhanced tools. Job seekers can post resumes, which are fully searchable by employers, and can be instantly updated online.
A new classifieds feature of the site provides networking capabilities with business to business directory-style advertising of products and services. For just $99 per year, independent contractors to general businesses can advertise their specific products and services on the site. OrthodoxJobs.com provides any business—photographer, iconographer, graphic designer, chanter, etc.—with a searchable and targeted advertising opportunity on a local, regional, and national level.
Also new in this major update is a comprehensive “Employment Resources” section. These resources include resume and cover letter writing, hiring and interview question tips, and real life stories from Orthodox Christians living their vocation—as their unique and ongoing response to Christ’s call to love God and neighbor—in a variety of professions. In addition there are sample job descriptions for positions such as “Parish Youth Worker” to help churches enhance their parish ministry.
OrthodoxJobs.com has been servicing the Orthodox Christian community since 2005 with a forum for posting job opportunities in lay ministry positions in churches and Orthodox organizations.
The Department of Internet Ministries is dedicated to helping Greek Orthodox parishes in the United States use technology for the proclamation of the Good News of the Gospel and for the advancement of Orthodox Christian ministry. More information about the programs and services offered by the Department is available at http://www.internet.goarch.org.
The Office of Vocation & Ministry (OVM) at Hellenic College provides opportunities for college students, high school students, and those who serve them, for growth in Orthodox Christian vocation and leadership through theological inquiry, ongoing reflection, and service.
