Our mission is to assist people who find themselves at crossroads in their career. Whether at a career crossroads due to a job loss or a desire to move in a new career direction, Crossroads Career Network provides tools to help you on your journey.

This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16
