Dan Needs a Job!

Filed under Faith, Family, Work

This is my friend Dan Lord. No, he’s not in pain, he just needs a job to support his wife and five kids. Fast.

Dan was referred to me by my friend Randy Hain at The Integrated Catholic Life, an outstanding website. Randy is a professional recruiter, and knows that part of the job search game is numbers. It’s important to get a candidate in front of as many employers as possible.

Dan has a Master’s in Theology from the University of Dallas, and has one heck of an impressive and diverse lists of talents – including being the lead singer for a band called Pain (which better explains the photo above). He has a great web site that just won an award, and his wife Hallie is a terrific blogger herself.

So let’s do Dan a favor, and send his resume to everyone we know who might have a spot for this talented guy and Catholic brother. Dan can write, he can edit, perform database management, help out in fundraising, you name it. When I asked about his goal, he said it’s “to use my creative writing skills and my abilities to guide and direct worthy Catholic projects to a fruitful end.” Sounds pretty good to me. Dan and his family are willing to relocate if necessary, the important thing is connecting with a good organization, ideally a Catholic apostolate.

Even if you can’t help Dan directly, please join me in praying for him, and give him some encouragement by commenting on this post or directly on his web site. Thank you!

    Will keep him in prayer for sure! I have thought about doing this for myself on my own blog… I just painted myself in a corner geographically, and am having trouble finding a job. As a law school grad, the loans don’t pay themselves.

    Hopefully Dan will find something soon, he sure does have a great resume!

    Hey Dan,
    Keep the faith brother! Start a Novena to St. Joseph ASAP.

    Here’s job openings in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Mpls.

    You might want to check out diocesan websites…many have job postings. Also, many diocese have official newspapers (with websites) that will list Catholic job openings.

    God Bless,

    Got this email last week:
    Dear Friends,

    I am looking for a right hand man/woman who will work closely with me in Washington DC to help run C-FAM (Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute), one of the preeminent pro-life groups on the international scene.

    The person I am looking for will work as office manager of the Washington DC and New York (UN) offices and also as my executive assistant.

    You must be a mature self-starter, detail oriented, highly organized, and able to work for long periods without direct supervision (I travel a lot). You must be professional and able to speak to anyone from a small vendor to a UN diplomat.

    C-FAM is a small organization so there is a great deal of room for you to grow and you can contribute in many ways. Do you have web skills? We can use those. Can you write? We will publish you. Can you edit? We need that, too.

    C-FAM is a small entrepreneurial organization that fights for life and family at the international level, at the UN mostly, but all around the world. C-FAM is at the center of the international right for life, faith and family. We are 14 years old with a solid funding base of 15,000 donors.

    Go to our website and see all that we do (www.c-fam.org).

    Please send your resume to me personally at austinruse@c-fam.org

    This is an amazing opportunity for someone who has been itching to get into the fight for life.

    Yours sincerely,

    Austin Ruse

    PS Salary based on experience and skills. Full health benefits provided.

    Can’t hurt to try.
