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.
