Providence, R.I., diocese helps unemployed

The WSJ had a good article yesterday on HR Help for Small Businesses, and lists web sites to connect employers and job seekers. The Providence, R.I., diocese is taking a proactive stance in helping unemployed Rhode Islanders find work by launching "Employment Connections," which includes free employment ads, among other things. There are a number of such efforts by Catholic parishes and dioceses across the country.
