Did you make some bad choices?

I am pretty sure that NO one in their entire lives has ever said, "WOW I never made a bad decision."

We all have because we make mistakes.

The important thing is to grow from them and not to let that define who we are and especially NOT to dwell on them. #beenthere

If you're struggling from the results of the bad choices you made yesterday, last week, or even years ago talk to someone. Whether it's a professional counselor, friend, family member or even a pet (the best therapy) it's important to take care of your mental well-being.

So go get yourself back out there, you have got this!!

What are some GOOD choices you've made this year?

Hi! I am a returning citizen. I made some mistakes in the past and have a felony record. I haven’t had anything negative on my record for almost 20 years and I’m having a hard time finding a job because of failing the background check. People have said that employers don’t go farther back than 7-10 years when doing a background check but that is not true. I have paid my debt to society and have even got my voting rights back. When will I stop being judged for past mistakes? Enough is enough. #convictedfelons #advice #secondchances #backgroundcheck

TODAY begins Ban the Box in Lakeland, FL!!

City Manager Shawn Sherrouse has implemented a "Ban the Box" process that will remove the questions about prior criminal convictions for job applicants!!

The new process goes into effect today, February 1st.

Ban the Box legislation started in 1998 with Hawaii being the first state to pass a law restricting employers from inquiring about a candidate’s criminal background prior to an offer being extended.

Since then, legislation has been enacted in 33 states and more than 150 municipalities. The state of Florida has not implemented similar legislation but several cities and counties within the state have Ban the Box initiatives including Tampa, Orlando, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Sarasota, just to name a few.

The questions about criminal history will be removed from the City’s initial hiring process and potential job candidates that may have a criminal offense in their background will not be judged at the time of submitting their application.

Instead, criminal background checks that are part of the hiring process when a potential candidate is being considered for a position.

Do you think more states and towns would Ban the Box?

Background

OK, so, I've been looking for permanent employment for some time now. I fill out applications get called for interviews, and then they say they are going to do a background check, and I never hear another thing from them, it's very discouraging. OK, yeah, I've made some bad decisions in my life, I took a negative situation and did something positive with it, I got my GED, learned from this experience and now I've been labeled for life. BUT, I still have a work ethic, I have not forgot my knowledge and wisdom of how to be a great employee, but can't seem to find that right job, that will give me a second chance, I am dependable, reliable, still have all my experience of my past jobs. I kno I'm not the only one out there in this position
