KIROS Transitions

KIROS Transitions exists to connect, encourage and equip Christians who are in career transition. KIROS Transitions assists both job seekers and employers with employment assistance.

JOB SEEKERS: KIROS Transitions meetings are scheduled each month following the KIROS Bellevue Breakfast Meeting (normally the 2nd Friday of each month) from 8:45-9:45am. Registration for the breakfast event is not required to attend Transitions group meetings. At Transitions, attendees support one another through prayer and sharing of job-related information that can be helpful in finding new employment. Occasional workshops are offered targeting specific aspects of a job search. Click to view job postings.

EMPLOYERS: KIROS Transitions is a free resource available to assist with job structuring, sourcing options and job candidate referral. We can assist employers in creating employment opportunities that have a positive impact on business, that result in increased job satisfaction and greater employee retention. For employers that wish to submit a job opportunity to share with job seekers, click for Employer Job Opportunities Form.

During this COVID season, KIROS is meeting monthly over Zoom, with a special Job Search series. Visit our event page for updated meeting dates.
