Let's talk for a moment about transferable skills. If we understand that Father has a plan for us which requires us to grow and learn and become more capable, then it is easy to understand that specific skills we acquire in a given job could very well become transferable skills which prepare you for different jobs with greater responsibilities, either in your current industry ... or in a different industry.
Confused on what is a transferable skill? Here is a definition:
Transferable skills are the skills you acquire and transfer to future employment settings. Common examples include interpersonal, communication, leadership and organizational skills.
So now we are in the search for our next assignment, it is time to do some mental exercises. We need to do some real work of examining the skills we have gained and determining if they can be transferable skills.

Several times last week, Father reminded me that He knows the people with whom I need to be connected. Not only does He know, but He has a plan to connect me in an effective way. I just have to keep my eyes open for His leading and that I trust Him to accomplish what He intends.
Our search for our next assignment needs to be conducted in this manner as well.
No, we cannot sit at home on the couch, watching TV and say that God will get us connected. We have to be going to those places where we are likely to meet people. This would be connection locations like Panera Bread, Connection Cafe, or Meetup Groups. This could be taking "side gigs" like Lyfting which puts us in a special relationship to serve others ... with a corresponding opportunity to be able to talk with them and ask strategic questions about our job search.
Plan, today, where you will be this week for Father to connect you with a new resource for your search.
