According to the U.S. Department of Justice, more than two-thirds of released offenders are rearrested within three years. Studies have shown that one of the top factors in preventing recidivism is steady employment. Yet many individuals transitioning out of incarceration lack the fundamental tools and information they need to conduct a successful job search. Quick Job Search for Ex-Offenders provides offenders with job search guidance that speaks directly to their concerns, barriers, and goals. Ex-offenders gain skills and knowledge in the seven key stages of the job search: Step 1: Create a Positive Image and Environment. Step 2: Identify Your Skills. Step 3: Identify Job Targets. Step 4: Get Your Documents in Order. Step 5: Use the Two Most Effective Job Search Methods. Step 6: Dramatically Improve Your Interviewing Skills. Step 7: Follow Up on All Job Leads. Quick Job Search for Ex-Offenders addresses many issues that individuals coming out of incarceration face, including: Meeting basic needs. Establishing a support network. Identifying and emphasizing transferable skills. Setting realistic occupational goals (within legal and educational restrictions) and taking the "long view" on career management. Addressing their incarceration in resumes, cover letters, job applications, and interviews. Providing evidence of rehabilitation. Taking advantage of federal hiring initiatives. This booklet also includes two appendices, an 'Essential Job Search Data Worksheet' that job seekers can use to fill out applications or create a resume, and a new appendix, 'The First 30 Days on the Job,' which gives ex-offenders tips for retaining employment and impressing their supervisor. Package of 10.
