About the ABF Career Alliance
Finding the right job or career path can be challenging in today’s world of impersonal online applications. Yet the top career search experts agree: the best opportunities come from one-to-one connections. That's why the ABF Career Alliance was created. The ABF Career Alliance connects Christian Science job seekers (and those "friendly" to Christian Science) with seasoned professionals in their fields of interest, who are also Christian Scientists. These professionals, or "career allies," are eager to share their knowledge, and at times their contacts, with their extended family-faith community.
This ABF Career Alliance event is sponsored by individual Christian Scientists who value our work to build an active, dynamic career community whose members share the common bond of Christian Science. Learn more about the benefits of being an ABF Career Alliance sponsor.

What better extension of our purpose than to help Christian Scientists who have completed their education and now need help in the world of work? The ABF Career Alliance was created to meet this need!”
