One of the first steps you should take is to consider what job you would be best at based on your interests, present skill set, previous experience or training, and long-term goal.

  • Do you enjoy building things? A construction job may be a great fit for you.
  • Enjoy cooking for friends or family? Why not transfer those skills into a position as a line cook, cafeteria worker, or a restaurant team member?
  • Were you once the go-to lawn mower in your neighborhood? Consider landscaping or groundskeeping!
  • Did you take part in a work program or assignment while incarcerated? That position could have imparted valuable skills that you can use to find your next paying job.

You’d be surprised how the skills you already have can easily translate into a fulfilling job.

After you have a good grasp of your strengths and interests, it’s time to start looking for open positions in your immediate or local area. CLICK HERE TO SEE WHERE YOU CAN GET SUPPORT IN FINDING A JOB.

I wrote this 3 years ago. Someone just resurfaced it for me and I thought I'd do same for everyone - becuase theres a lot to learn from those that are overcoming some of the biggest mistakes.

"Having a record reduces the likelihood of a job callback or offer by as much as 50 percent, according to the NAACP. In the land of the free, this is unacceptable. Those who paid their debt to society should not be subject to a vocational sentence of life-without-equal-opportunity."

I am so proud to share this article written by Jobcase CEO, @Fred Goff. In the article, Fred notes that one in three adults have a criminal record. This makes it extremely difficult, and at times, even impossible to find work. However, this can change if employers and job seekers work to overcome the stigma and recognize the benefits of giving individuals an opportunity for a #secondchance.

Check out this amazing read and let me know your thoughts below!

A few days ago I posted a issue I witnessed regarding felons. How do you feel about companies hiring ex-felons? I know people who committed crimes and have changed there life's and others who choose to continue breaking the law. This is a subject I feels needs to truly be looked at from a national stand point, what's your thoughts? More on this later.
