THE STREETS DON'T LOVE YOU BACK

WELCOME TO... THE STREETS DON'T LOVE YOU BACK

EX-OFFENDER INFO

Because you have a criminal record, you will be faced with different challenges than the average job seeker. Your record will make your job search more interesting. There is a choice to be made here too. You can do what many ex-offenders do and hope that a prospective employer will not hold your record against you. Another choice is, you can make yourself legitimately competitive in the open employment market by developing the skills and attitudes that will allow you to compete for a job. Can you tell an employer in five minutes or less what you can do and how your skills can benefit him? How is your dress? Do you look like you are going to a club or to hang out with some friends or do you look like a businessman with a product to sell? Do you have definite plan of action that includes of prospective employers to call on? Do you have a resume that outlines you skills, experience or qualifications? If you answered "No" to any one of these questions, you have some work to do.

Step One: Identify your skills. I bet if you really look, you have at least 30 skills that would benefit an employer.

Step Two: Develop a resume that a prospective employer can look at and get an idea of what type of person you are and what you have to offer.

Step Three: Decide what type of work you want to do and how your skills will help you be successful in the field you choose.

Step Four: Develop a list of prospective employers to call on. Get help from friends, relatives, and members of your community to help you get leads for open jobs. That is called "Networking."

Step Five: Get your wardrobe together. The clothing you wear both on your job search and interviews should be neat, clean and professional. Your clothes should say "I am the person for this job!"

Step Six: Practice you interview skills. Anticipate questions and practice answering until your responses sound confident and natural.

One additional choice you must make is to never give up! “You can become anyone you want to be! It doesn’t matter what happened to you or what you’ve done!! What matters is what you do next!”

FACTS: The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world and also the highest rate in its history, with about 753 people per 100,000 incarcerated. Presently, there are more than 40,000 people incarcerated in the state's prison system. In addition, about 10,000 people are incarcerated in the Maricopa County Jail at any given time There are 7 million Americans in custody of various forms There are 2.3 million Americans in prison $28,000 is the average annual cost of one prison inmate Non-violent offenders make up over 60 percent of the prison and jail population. 50% prisoners suffer from mental illness 6.8 million Americans struggle with drug abuse or dependency Over 25% of the American population has a criminal record Over 90% of all prisoners are released back into society 50% is the average national recidivism rate after 3 years 7 times: Employed parolees are 7 times less likely to recidivate 39 times: Parolees with a mentor were found to be 39 times less likely to recidivate Nearly 700,000 people are released from America’s prisons each year. They return to their communities needing housing and jobs, but their prospects are generally bleak. The majority of ex-prisoners have not completed high school. In addition, close to three quarters of them have a history of substance abuse, and more than one third have a physical or mental disability. These former prisoners are going home to some of the nation’s poorest neighborhoods, where they often lack stable social bonds and support networks and where there are few services to help them restart their lives. Given the huge gap between their complex challenges and their limited opportunities for addressing them, it is not surprising that recidivism rates are high. In fact, more than half (52 percent) of former state prisoners are back behind bars within three years after their release, either as a result of a parole violation or because they have committed a new crime. This cycle of recidivism produces many negative consequences. Households that are already fragile become overwhelmed. Communities that are already struggling fall further behind. The lives of those who move in and out of prison are wasted. And the cost to taxpayers is enormous. Overall, the US spends more than $60 billion a year on prisons and jails. (It costs more than $23,000 to incarcerate someone in a Federal Bureau of Prisons facility for one year and approximately $3,500 per year for probation; incarceration in a state prison can run as high as $45,000 per year or more.) Without the development of effective approaches for reducing recidivism, the problem is certain to grow. The number of Americans behind bars has increased steadily and now includes more than 2.1 million men and women. Almost all of them will eventually be released, and, unless something changes, more than half of them will not be successful in reentering their communities and will return to prison. Female offenders are a rapidly growing population at local, state and national levels. In fiscal year 1990, Arizona’s female population totaled 778. By fiscal year 2004, that figure grew 250% to 2,722. National statistics show that Arizona is incarcerating female offenders at a much higher rate than other states. Most of the women are incarcerated for lesser violent crimes than their male counterparts. In fact, approximately 70% of women currently in Arizona prisons were convicted of non-violent crimes. More than 96% of current inmates will be released and returned to the community, usually back to the same environment that propagated the reason for their incarceration. Women have different pathways to crime than men. Substance abuse is a primary factor in much of the crime committed by women. These problems can be directly attributed to a high incidence of sexual abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence victimization which leads them to drugs, thievery, prostitution, extortion and violence. Another important issue is that many of these women are the primary caretakers of dependent children. A study in 2002 by the Arizona Department of Corrections found that 81% of female inmates had children and that 6% were pregnant. Research shows that the absence of a parent has a negative effect on the development of a child. In fact, studies reveal that children of female inmates are six times more likely to enter the criminal justice system than their peers.

C. Unemployment Insurance Office Unemployment compensation is a social insurance program designed to provide benefits to most individuals out of work, generally through no fault of their own, for periods between jobs. In order to be eligible for benefits, jobless workers must demonstrate that they have worked, usually measured by amount of wages and/or weeks of work, and must be able and available for work. The unemployment compensation program is based upon federal law, but administered by states under state law.

DES handles job development, conducts job fairs, provides free typing exams for those seeking clerical work who need official verification of typing speed, provides career assessment testing and even allows employers to interview candidates for jobs at their offices. In addition to the above services, DES administers the Federal Bonding Program, which provides a bond of up to $5,000 to employers wishing to hire an ex-offender in a job that requires bonding. The applicant must have an actual job offer for full-time employment in order to qualify. Contact 602 495-1861, x. 1002 for this service only. DES also offers a Rehabilitation Services Program which includes services such as job coaching, computer training, job retention and coaching techniques, etc. This division specializes in vocational rehab for those with blindness or other visual impairments.

"Everyone needs a second chance"!! EX-OFFENDER FRIENDLY COMPANIES.

A number of private and public resource centers enable felons to get the required training and licenses to start a business and make a humble, but rejuvenating start. A number of families are also extending help to such convicts. They enable related felons to become an integral part of existent family businesses. Here is a list of various jobs that ex-felons can hold: Drivers: Felons are being considered for dedicated driving jobs. They are considered for delivery jobs like flower delivery, at moderate salaries and a possibility of salary negotiations. Even though the job keeps a felon consistently on the move, the salaries offer stability and job satisfaction. A fresh leash on life is a morale and fiscal booster. The process of procuring the necessary license from driving schools is similar to that applicable to others. Licenses for driving trucks and other special licenses are not difficult to obtain. Self-employment: Felons are also offered the unique opportunity of starting a business.

Other: Ebay seller, any type of fast food-related job, kitchen help in a restaurant, apprentice for a job such as an electrician or masonry, janitor, maintenance, security guard, Kroger, grocery stores, Conway Trucking, trucking companies, pizza delivery, greenhouse worker, warehouse jobs, UPS, landscaping, construction, building, roofing, day laborer, work-at-home telemarketer, modeling, acting, nonprofit worker, church jobs, factory jobs, — even in management eventually, temp agencies, recycling waste center, trash pickup and trash center, bounty hunter, bakery, food prep and counter work at a deli, courier, apprentice in carpentry, Goodwill, Salvation Army, start your own business– making something, selling something, providing a service. Tips: Large companies will most likely not hire you; small businesses very well might contact independent (not national) recruiters and ask what kinds of checks they do– if they do local checks only, you’re good –now’s a great time to start your own business.

Armed Forces: The US Army and Navy have been accepting a number of ex-felons since 2006. The age limit for joining the army is now 42. It was raised from 35 in the year 2006, in order to encourage more people to apply. In order to join the armed forces, an ex-felon would require a waiver from the Secretary of Defense or his Under Secretary. Commanding General of the MILPERCEN - United States Army Military Personnel Center, generally grants the waivers on behalf of the Secretary. A steady paycheck and good training are some of the benefits of joining the army.

Goodwill: (800) Goodwill If you can’t get to a Goodwill in person or prefer to get a head start from the comfort of your own home, consider taking advantage of our free online career exploration and skills training programs. Job skills and job training.

Salvation Army: The Salvation Army runs a prisoner rehabilitation program that encourages former felons to participate in work-release programs, conducted by the Salvation Army rehabilitation centers and Harbor Light Centers. In case a person has been charged with a minor offense, it might be possible for him to work at the community centers. In addition to providing employment, working for the Salvation Army and serving the community can be a healing and rejuvenating experience in itself. Online Surveys For Money: This is a lucrative option for people who are interested in earning money by participating in home based online surveys. Paid online surveys are conducted by market research companies interested in forecasting and projecting the demand for products and services of their clients. Typically, a large company employs a market research firm for conducting surveys. The latter does not conduct a background check for convictions and felonies, since there is no need for direct contact between the market research firm and the person taking the survey.

Private Firms Interested in WOTC: Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal tax credit that is offered to an employer in case he hires an individual convicted of a felony, within a year of conviction or release. Most restaurants make use of this tax credit by hiring ex-felons. Employer's Protected by the Federal Bonding Program: A fidelity bond guarantees protection to the employer during the first 6 months of employing an ex-felon or a person with a high risk profile. It is provided free of cost to the employer and the employee. They need to fulfill certain basic requirements in order to obtain this facility provided under the Federal Bonding Program. Employers protected by fidelity bonds may be willing to hire ex-felons. The state bonding coordinator should be contacted for further details.

How to Create a Great Cover Letter For your resume

A cover letter is the best way to introduce yourself to a potential employer. It tells them a little bit about you, your background, and why you are interested in the position. A great cover letter is going to help you get your foot in the door and give you the best chance at getting a great position. To create a cover letter to go along with your job application, it is helpful to have the right tools at your disposal. If you are very confident in your word processing abilities, you can create your own organized and professional cover letter. However, if you feel like you need some help creating a good outline, use cover letter templates. These templates can be opened in your word processing program, and then you can plug your information directly into the document. A template will have a neat, professional layout already in place for you – but make sure you choose a simple design. Top Cover Letter Tips Your cover letter should always be accurate and professional. Never submit your cover letter without giving it a second look. Check for grammar and spelling errors and make sure you have included all the correct contact information at the top of your letter. You don’t want to miss out on a job opportunity because you accidentally missed a digit in your phone number or spelled your email address wrong! Highlight your skills with carefully selected keywords. These words will jump out at the prospective employer and tell them exactly what your strengths are. Use words that are easily understood and simple, like organized, experienced, and professional. Keep it simple so your cover letter will be easy to read and understand. Many hiring managers are busy and have a lot to go through, so they will appreciate a short and sweet cover letter. Keep the whole thing to one page. The right cover letter will improve your chances of getting noticed. You can stand out from the other applicants if you use the right formatting and keywords. This is your chance to sell the recruiter on your qualifications and skills. This is your sales pitch and the resume is the supporting document. Layout and Contents Your cover letter should be short and simple. Include all of your contact information as well as the recruiter’s contact information. Spell his or her name correctly and include the title if possible. Introduce yourself and state what job you are applying for. Follow this by telling them why you are a good fit for the company – how your skills and experience match the job, their mission, the posting they put out, etc. State what you like about the company and in so doing, show off the research you did on the company. Finish by stating that you look forward to hearing from them.
