Summary/Annotation -> Finding a job is one of the most important challenges facing the ex-offenders who leave prisons, jails, and detention centres. Indeed, for someone who has lost everything, successful re-entry into a community becomes very difficult. Without a job and support network to help meet the immediate needs of food, housing, health care, and transportation, and often saddled with financial obligations, many ex-offenders soon fall back on old habits, relationships, and temptations that lead them back to the prison doors. But what should ex-offenders do in order to land a good job? Where should they go to find a job they do well and enjoy doing? Here's the book that provides important answers to many re-entry questions facing ex-offenders. Beginning with an examination of 20 myths/realities and 22 principles for success, two of America's leading employment experts reveal 10 steps to job and career success. A final chapter goes one step further in examining what to do once you've landed the job - how to survive and prosper on the job as well as advance your career.
