Job placements combine practical experience with exploration of day-to-day issues of faith and help Fellows develop relationships within their vocational field. Each fellow will work at his or her part-time job in Chattanooga on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
Fellows meet weekly with local Chattanooga leaders in business, law, medicine, art, and other areas of influence for Vocational Lunches. Fellows will hear about this person's vocational journey and what the Lord is teaching them through their work. Over the course of the Fellows year participants will have had lunch with at least 25 leaders in the city.
Fellows also take a gambit of ability assessments that they then debrief and think through with certified facilitators. The purpose of these tests is to help each Fellow know how they are uniquely created by God and how that could manifest in the workplace. Currently the Chattanooga Fellows use the Highlands Ability Battery, MCORE, and EQi assessments.
