Ten Critical Steps for Ex-Offenders to Get Back Into the Workforce
Employment Screening Resources® (ESR) has released a complimentary whitepaper written by ESR Founder and CEO Attorney Lester Rosen entitled "Ten Critical Steps for Ex-Offenders to Get Back into the Workforce" to help job applicants with criminal records avoid the frustrating "Catch 22" situation where they risk not finding employment whether they lie or tell the truth about their pasts.
Rosen explains the situation in the whitepaper: The bottom line is that many ex-offenders seeking to rebuild their lives and get back into the mainstream face significant challenges. An ex-offender seeking a second chance may run into a wall where an employer will not even consider their application in the first place... However, challenging is not the same as impossible. The key is the right attitude and getting and keeping that first job, so that as time goes by, a person has developed a successful job history that outweighs past problems. The goal of this paper is to provide helpful insights and suggestions to help ex-offenders get back into the workforce.
