By Ronald L. Krannich, Ph.D.
Despite negative rap sheets, most ex-offenders should be able to go on to rewarding jobs and productive careers. But many don’t – their rap sheet becomes their resume! Once released to the free world, too many stumble from one low-paying and insecure "hard labor" job to another, unable to find satisfying work as well as keep a job for long.
Failing to adequately support themselves, many soon return to jails and prisons. Indeed, much of today’s high recidivism rate (60-70%) directly relates to the issue of ex-offender employability.
What ex-offenders most need is a good job to jump-start their new life in the free world. But they first could use some basic information on the who, what, where, and how of job opportunities appropriate for their red flag backgrounds.
Here’s the first book, newly revised, 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
- 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
In this book, Ronald Krannich examines many jobs in terms of:
- employment outlook
- nature of work
- working conditions
- education and training requirements
- expected earnings
- recommended resources
The book also 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.
Thus it serves as a handy and essential 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 message throughout this ground-breaking book is very clear: Ex-offenders ARE employable. Given useful information, an action plan, and a positive attitude with drive, they can become successful. Best of all, ex-offenders can create a new future filled with freedom, purpose, joy, and prosperity!
