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 revealing book gives renewed hope and direction to ex-offenders who are uncertain what they want to do, can do, and will do in the future. It profiles 13 categories of jobs and occupations:
Construction trades and related jobs
Installation, maintenance, and repair occupations
Science, math, engineering, and technology jobs
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 many 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 reference for exploring job options appropriate for ex-offenders who want to jump-start their lives with a good job that leads to a rewarding career. The book 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 this ground-breaking book is very clear: Ex-offenders are employable. Given useful information, an action plan, and a positive attitude coupled with drive, they can become successful. © 2015. 144 pp. 7" x 10" Softcover.
