By Caryl and Ron Krannich, Ph.Ds

Finding and keeping a job is the key to re-entry success for the more than 600,000 ex-offenders who transition from prison to the free world each year. While ex-offenders face numerous barriers to employment, landing a job depends on how well they manage the critical job interview.

What, for example, should an ex-offender say when asked "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?" or when employers notice other red flags in their background, such as little work experience, no diploma or degree, history of job hopping, and poor references?

What about this knee-bender interview opener frequently asked by interviewers: "Tell me about yourself"? Should the ex-offender respond by telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the ugly truth, and then get knocked out of consideration for the job?

Is it okay for them to parse the truth to get the job offer and then demonstrate they have changed their life once on the job? Just how much "truthiness" should they engage in during the job interview?

Or are there other things ex-offenders can do and say to convince employers that hiring them is not risky business nor an act of charity? Is there another way to tell the truth that communicates why the ex-offender would be an important asset to the employer?

Addressing the many employability issues facing ex-offenders, this book helps people with not-so-hot backgrounds deal with the realities of today's job market, especially face-to-face encounters with reluctant employers who prefer not hiring ex-offenders who may lack good workplace skills and pose risks to follow employees and customers.

It offers seasoned advice on how ex-offenders can tell the whole truth and still go on to ace the critical job interview.

Focusing on how to identify and respond to red flag behaviors in one's background, individual chapters demonstrate how ex-offenders can turn obvious red flags into green lights by developing excellent communication skills that focus on the positives.

These positives include everything from the choice of language to compelling examples and stories of self-transformation and rehabilitation. Examining the whole interview process from beginning to end, 13 hard-hitting chapters address:
  • job search mistakes ex-offenders make
  • job knockouts
  • telling the truth
  • 40 key interview mistakes job seekers make
  • anticipated interview questions and appropriate responses
  • nonverbal interview behaviors
  • interview preparation issues
  • handling the interview situation
  • dealing with red flag questions
  • closing and following up the interview
  • responding to job offers
  • negotiating salary and benefits
The book also includes a handy list of 101 frequently asked job interview questions as well as salaries for 795 different occupations and a career resource section.

Presented in an interactive workbook format, this essential re-entry resource is jam-packed with how-to advice, examples, tests, and exercises for generating the necessary interview preparation information all ex-offenders need in order to prepare for the critical job interview. 128 pages. October 2008.
