“This video shows excellent examples of how to respond – and how NOT to respond – better than any information I’ve found anywhere!”

– Penny L. Richardson, Business Instructor, Idaho State Correctional Institution

Ex-offenders are often clients or participants in programs operated by many organizations – community-based organizations, post-secondary institutions, one-stop career centers, other training programs funded by JTPA, and welfare-to-work programs, to name some. Both ex-offenders and the professionals who work with them will benefit from this excellent, newly revised video that addresses the unique challenges that ex-offenders face when they look for work.

Results-Oriented Job Search Methods

This is still a very special video that addresses key topics with solid content. Real-life ex-offenders talk about looking for – and finding – jobs. Ex-offenders learn Mike Farr’s practical, self-directed job search techniques, with emphasis on the unique needs of ex-offenders:

• Why traditional job search methods – filling out applications, answering newspaper ads, and “shot-gunning” resumes – are less effective for ex-offenders
• The two most effective job search methods that can dramatically reduce the time it takes to find a job

And the job search methods are the very best! They’re based on techniques by Mike Farr, whose job search books have sold more than 2 million copies!
