#9316 While ex-offenders are excluded from some occupations, especially ones dealing with sensitive security, finance, and health care issues, many other occupations are relatively open to ex-offenders. Indeed, occupations in the building, transportation, moving, and mechanical/repair trades often welcome rehabilitated, skilled, enthusiastic, and promising ex-offenders to their ranks.
Crime in America is largely a young persons activity. And most young ex-offenders lack legitimate work experience and knowledge of today’s job market. Once released from prison or jail, they often flounder in the job market, unable to find a good job. They need basic knowledge about various occupations relevant to their interests, skills, and abilities as well as a better understanding of the nature of work and various occupations that make up today’s challenging work world.
