Patron Saints

As a Catholic, patron saints have been an important part of my life. Lose something? Ask St. Anthony to find it. Selling a house? Bury a St. Joseph statue in the yard.

So when I came across an old article (November 2004) in Writer's Digest magazine about patron saints and the inspiration they can have on you as a resume writer -- and your clients -- I had to share it!

  • Saint Jude is the patron saint of lost causes (the client without a four-year degree who wants a great job in pharmaceutical sales).
  • Saint Joseph is also the patron saint of workers.
  • Looking for that perfect word? Pray to Saint Bernadine of Siena, patron saint of advertisers, advertising, and public relations.
  • Saint Cajetan is the patron saint of the unemployed (also known as the "starving artist" saint).
  • Saint Agricola of Avignon is the patron saint to pray to when you wish to prevent misfortune.
  • Work from home? Pray to Saint Rita of Cascia, the patron saint against loneliness.
