Many ex-offenders have difficulty finding stable jobs that lead to promising futures. Most lack information about opportunities appropriate for their red flag backgrounds. Once released, they often stumble from one low-paying and insecure "hard labor" job to another. Many have difficulty finding satisfying work and keeping a job for long. Unable to adequately support themselves as well as fulfill court-ordered financial obligations, many soon get into trouble that leads them back into prisons and jails. Not surprisingly, much of today's high recidivism rate (60-70%) directly relates to the issue of ex-offender employability and the ease of violating terms of release (fail to meet parole officer and/or pay child support). What they most need is a GOOD JOB to jump-start their new life!

Here's the first book to examine jobs suitable for ex-offenders. Profiling 101 opportunities that are relatively open to people with not-so-hot backgrounds, this upbeat book gives renewed hope and direction to ex-offenders who are uncertain what they want to do, can do, and will do in the free world. It profiles 13 categories of jobs and occupations:

- Construction trades and related jobs

- Installation, maintenance, and repair occupations

- Science, moth, engineering, and technology jobs

- Production occupations

- Transportation and material moving occupations

- Travel and hospitality jobs

- Computer and Internet jobs

- Health and medical care jobs

- Sales and related jobs

- Sports, entertainment, and media jobs

- Office and administrative support jobs

- Military, government, and nonprofit jobs

- Starting a business

Examining most jobs in terms of employment outlook, nature of work, working conditions, education and training requirements, expected earnings, and recommended resources, the book serves as a handy directory for exploring numerous job options appropriate for ex-offenders. Includes summary charts of today's best jobs and separate chapters on transitional employment experiences, job restrictions on ex-offenders, and internal and external barriers to employment. The message throughout is very clear: Ex-offenders ARE employable. Given the right informational tools and an action plan, they CAN become successful. The perfect book for creating a new future filled with freedom, purpose, joy, and prosperity!
