October 24, 2011 was Developed for You as Leaders

Filed under: Using — Larry @ 2:21 pm

The following are personal thoughts, opinions & ideas of LDSJobs from Richard Pedersen. They may provide a different "lens” to view LDSJobs.

“My journey with LDSJobs began on July 27th, 2009 as I prepared our missionary staff to launch the “beta testing” of this new worldwide tool. Since then, we have spent countless hours using the website & conducting hundreds of large, medium & small training presentations about LDSJobs. So what have we learned?

1) One-to-One discussions are more effective than large presentations for sharing the "vision" of LDSJobs.

2) LDSJobs was developed for leaders.

A key activity for LDS Employment is to help more members move from the left hand side of a bell curve to the right hand side of a bell curve & support ward/stake leaders in this process. The "bell curve" I refer to can be found in many of the new correlated training “Welfare Lessons for Church Leaders” on

Building greater self-reliance can take a significant time investment from the member. This process can take several months or years for the member to reach greater levels of self-reliance. During that time the member may move to another area and individuals in leadership callings will change. is the common global tool that the members, ERS Staff & Stake/Ward leaders can use coordinate efforts to support & assist members in reaching their goals for greater self-reliance. Members on the right hand side of the curve may not need as much support & assistance from leaders. If they choose, they can access all information, job postings, & other resources on in a self-service manner. is a global tool that allows one correlated message to leaders, members and resources.

It is about job leads but more importantly, it is about the depth & breadth of relationships behind the job leads! is a tool for SES/WES & other leaders to become involved.
"Stake presidents, bishops, elders quorum presidents, and high priests group leaders—we now call upon you to mobilize our priesthood quorums in response to the employment and financial challenges facing our members. Consider this your personal phone call.” This Is Your Phone Call, Bishop Richard C. Edgley, April 2009”

“Dear Employment Specialist,

When you registered on you indicated you would like to receive reports about those who live within your ward who are seeking help with employment, education or self-employment. The technical issues that have kept these reports from being sent have been resolved and it is expected that you will begin receiving the reports at the frequency you indicated. Thank you for your patience while we worked through the challenges. It is anticipated that over the next few months the report will be refined to provide additional meaningful information.

To see or edit your request for these reports log-in to, select the My Account tab, under My Role: Ward, you will see your current settings for receiving these reports. You can edit your selections by clicking on the Edit Contact Information button.
