I’m so glad you decided to stop by my page. I have been teaching ex-offenders and felons how to get jobs for many years. Through my seminars and formal classes, I have been able to help a lot of people discover exactly what it takes to get a job with a criminal record.

One day at the end of one of my classes, a student came to me and expressed how much he had learned and how his despair had turned to confidence. He thought that because hJobs for Ex-offenders and Felons: From Jail to a Jobe was a felon, he had no chance at getting a job. After taking my class, he could not wait to get to work putting what he had learned to good use. He suggested that I put the lessons from my classes into writing. Bear in mind, I am not a writer by trade, but he was absolutely right. By making this knowledge widely available, I can help many more people who felt hopeless, get jobs. Thanks Roosevelt!
