Welcome to the new InlandNet website. While we maintained many of the old sections, we added some new features that we hope will help you in your transition activities. Also, we updated the look of the website and improved its functionality.
For example, you will find a new Career Links section. The details on how to use the links are explained in that section. We will continue to send individual job notifications through our Yahoo Group.
There is also a new Training section. This section provides an outline of the 6 Core Modules that make up the meeting presentation program and identifies when each of the modules will be presented. It also will explain how to schedule individual resume reviews and interview practices, once the 2nd presentation cycle begins in June 2013.
Finally, there is a new Sponsors & Services section. This section contains logos or links to our sponsors and other services that may help you during your career transition. Because our sponsors are supporting us, we ask that you support them when appropriate. We welcome your comments and suggestions for future improvements.
The mission of the InlandNet interfaith ministry is to assist those in transition, regardless of whether they are unemployed, under employed, or in career transition. In addition to providing resume writing, interviewing, and other typical job search services, InlandNet provides resources that are not normally available at networking events. These include, but are not limited to, spiritual guidance and personal counseling for participants and their families. And, there is never a charge for the service.
If you are not in transition, we encourage you to come by and share insights into the people and companies you know and who can add value to the networking process.
We do not allow the promotion of personal businesses in our networking meetings. However, if you or your company offers services of benefit to job seekers, we welcome you to attend our meetings and make yourself available to members after the meeting.
About the Prayer
Having a hard time looking for a job? Try asking intercession to God from St. Cayetano (Cajetan) because he is known as the patron saint of job seekers and the unemployed.
St. Cayetano was of noble lineage and was born on October, 1480 at Vicenza, Italy. His parents were Gaspar, Count of Thiene, and Maria Porto. Maria Porto was known to be very pious and was responsible for his studios upbringing. St. Cayetano eventually became a diplomat at Rome in 1506 and was largely attributed to the reconciliation of the Republic of Venice with Rome. By 1516 he had advanced already to the priesthood.
After leaving his work in 1523, due to the death of the Pope, he established the Oratory of Divine Love, which is an association of pious priests and prelates.
The following year he returned to Vicenza due to the death of his mother. There he established a hospital for incurables. Deeply concerned with the spiritual diseases that had infected the clergy of all ranks during his time he strove to reform them by instituting a body of regular clergy, who should combine the spirit of monasticism with the exercises of the active ministry.
He died at Naples in 1547 due to extreme depression and grief over the discords of the city of Naples. During his last moments he was said to have suffered a form of mystical crucifixion. He was beatified on 8 October 1629 by Pope Urban VIII and eventually canonized on 12 April 1671 by Pope Clement X.
Saint Cajetan’s feast day is celebrated on August 7. He is known as the patron saint of the unemployed and job seekers. His remains are in the church of San Paolo Maggiore in Naples.
