Many ex-offenders have difficulty finding stable jobs that lead to promising futures. Most lack information about opportunities appropriate for their red flag backgrounds. Once released, they often stumble from one low-paying and insecure "hard labor" job to another. Many have difficulty finding satisfying work and keeping a job for long. Unable to adequately support themselves as well as fulfill court-ordered financial obligations, many soon get into trouble that leads them back into prisons and jails. Not surprisingly, much of today s high recidivism rate (60-70%) directly relates to the issue of ex-offender employability and the ease of violating terms of release (fail to meet parole officer and/or pay child support). What they most need is a GOOD JOB to jump-start their new life! Here s the first book to examine jobs suitable for ex-offenders. Profiling 101 opportunities that are relatively open to people with not-so-hot backgrounds, this upbeat book gives renewed hope and direction to ex-offenders who are uncertain what they want to do, can do, and will do in the free world. It profiles 13 categories of jobs and occupations: - Construction trades and related jobs - Installation, maintenance, and repair occupations - Science, moth, engineering, and technology jobs - Production occupations - Transportation and material moving occupations - Travel and hospitality jobs - Computer and Internet jobs - Health and medical care jobs - Sales and related jobs - Sports, entertainment, and media jobs - Office and administrative support jobs - Military, government, and nonprofit jobs - Starting a business Examining most jobs in terms of employment outlook, nature of work, working conditions, education and training requirements, expected earnings, and recommended resources, the book serves as a handy directory for exploring numerous job options appropriate for ex-offenders. Includes summary charts of today s best jobs and separate chapters on transitional employment experiences, job restrictions on ex-offenders, and internal and external barriers to employment. The message throughout is very clear: Ex-offenders ARE employable. Given the right informational tools and an action plan, they CAN become successful. The perfect book for creating a new future filled with freedom, purpose, joy, and prosperity!"

I find getting this bundle for our centre has been very helpful as it helps both the counsellors as well as students in understanding the particular situations and using those details to their advantage. As a counsellor, I surely would recommend other career centres
