One of the most difficult problems facing ex-offenders is finding and keeping a job that can lead to a promising future. Indeed, without a decent job, many ex-offenders soon return to their old habits and re-offend in order to survive on the outside. Flunking the re-entry process, newly two-thirds of all ex-offenders go back to prisons, jails, or detention centers within three years of release. Often young, inexperienced, and living in a world of illusions, most ex-offenders lack knowledge about opportunities appropriate for their red flag backgrounds. But no more. This is the first book to outline jobs that ex-offenders are likely to succeed in. It profiles 101 job opportunities that ex-offenders should seriously consider when targeting today's job market. Each opportunity is described and analyzed in terms of: Employment outlook; Education, training, qualifications; Nature of work; Earnings; Working conditions; Key contacts. The book especially emphasises jobs in the construction trades, with nonprofit organisations, and in the manufacturing, transportation, and service industries. Special sections examine new opportunities in the U.S. military, given the widespread use of "moral waivers" to recruit nonviolent ex-offenders, and entrepreneurship or starting one's own business. The book also identifies various jobs (financial, security, education/child care) that are largely closed to ex-offenders because of the nature of their convictions.
