Places to find a job while attending seminary

by on November 18, 2007

Ok, here is another list that might help. Here are some sites that might help you find a job while you’re in seminary (no particular order other than this is how they came to my mind):

  • First, check with your seminary. Lots of them have job resources for you (often in local churches). Some also offer work study… which has ups and downs… but it is an options none the less.
  • Snag a Job (Good for hourly / part time gigs)
  • Craig’s List (be sure to change to view jobs in your area)
  • Monster
  • Indeed
  • Career Builder
  • Church Jobs
  • Church Staffing
  • Guru (Good site if you want to be a freelancer… I use this as a web development freelancer, but they have lots of other niche freelance categories. Oh, and you’ll need to drop cash to get an account, but I made about $2k this year through guru gigs.)
  • Hot Jobs

Any other suggestions for good job sites?

Don’t forget to look into the human resources department on your respective seminary’s campus. They usually keep a listing of various local jobs in the area. If you are wanting ministry type positions, I know Southern has a ministry referral service that helps students get plugged-in. Also, you could do pulpit supply through associational groups–that usually pays 75-100 dollars a week for preaching.
