GOT JOBS???

Nine percent of Georgians—and of our congregation—are unemployed. If you are a hiring manager with available positions, or if you know of openings of any kind, please consider sharing them with other Dunwoody UMC members and our Career Ministry participants.

The best way to do this is to post them on our Dunwoody UMC Network group on LinkedIn (see above for information on how to join this group). You will find a "Jobs" tab which is where position openings should be posted. If you are not on LinkedIn, then please contact the Dunwoody UMC Career Ministry at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . We will ensure the information gets to our Career Ministry job seekers.

“DunwoodyUMC Network” Group on LinkedIn

Online Professional Networking

In a church as large as ours, we interact with many others, but most of us still know only a fraction of our membership. Fellow church members offer a tremendous resource for business and professional networking, which benefits those seeking employment, and can be the foundation for new friendships as well. According to labor experts, more than 70% of all jobs are found though personal networking. One study found that an individual who is personally referred to an employer has 40 times greater probability of being hired than a candidate not referred to the employer!

social-networkIn order to allow Dunwoody UMC members to network online, a new LinkedIn group called "DunwoodyUMC Network" has been established and is open to all Dunwoody UMC members. Membership requires approval by a group manager, but any Dunwoody UMC member will be welcome. Dunwoody UMC non-members will be approved only if they demonstrate an established relationship to DUMC.

If you are interested in professional networking with fellow DUMC church members, please join the DunwoodyUMC Network group at LinkedIn. If you are already a LinkedIn member, search the group directory for "DunwoodyUMC" and join the group. If you are not a LinkedIn member, go to www.LinkedIn.com and join.

Welcome to the Dunwoody UMC Career Ministry Page.

This page is intended to serve as a resource for those that are:

  • Out of a job and looking for employment
  • Currently in a job but want to change jobs/careers
  • Simply looking for ways to build their career
  • Those with job opportunities for DUMC members or the Christian community at-large
  • We provide you with resources, but actually landing a job is still your own responsibility

For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.
