This initiative complements an ever growing database of businesses who are sharing opportunities with our professionals seeking new careers as well as parishioners who are networking and praying for ALL those in transition.
By the Grace of God and your support the CCR enters its nineth year helping all those in transition.
Our meeting today included a friend from RideKC Freedom, looking for para transit drivers. Several job seekers along with two newcomers were in attendance. In addition we had eight (8) CCR Alumni sharing their personal success stories. Four of these Alumni had found gainful employment in the past three months. Networking was the common thread shared in all their stories, along with prayer.
The CCR believes the process in today’s job search is a two prong approach. Apply for the position you are qualified for, next find someone within that company that can move your application from the stack of many to the group of the few.
Today we were honored by eight CCR Alumni who returned after attending the CCR as long as five years ago to as recently as just this past month to pay it forward by being that voice with their current employer (City Wide, Line-X Protective Coatings, Health Care Foundation of Greater KC, KeyBank Real Estate Capital, MTC Holding Corporation, Shadow Glenn Gold Course, Smith & Lovelace, & UnitedLex).
This is priceless… and for that CCR continues it’s mission assisting all those in transition.
Productive meeting today with two CCR Alumni in attendance and representing Bushell and Cerner, also CCR was happy to welcome a new guest representing DST.
Alumni & Friends of CCR Day is a great way for job seekers to meet those who have been in their shoes and are now not only back to full time employment, they are willing to do what they can if one of your target companies happens to be their employer. In today’s world, 80% of jobs are found through networking. Come network with the CCR!

Today we were happy to have NINE former job seekers come back as CCR Alumni and share each of their personal stories.
