  2. 2. FINDING YOURWAY HOMEAFTER PRISONOver the years, we have worked withmany job seeking consumers that aretrying to find a way to come homeand to start their life over.It is a hard process because we live ina society that fears your return andout of that blind fear; society seeks tocontrol or banish you.Society has forgotten that you aretheir next door neighbor, theircousins; their own children or thatyou are someone else’s children fromhere in our community.Society has successfully turned youinto stereotype, not a real people.This is society’s way of mitigating itslack of concern for you and/or itsunwillingness to give you a secondchance.One of the hardest parts of youreffort to return to a normal lifecenters upon your need ofemployment and towardsyour abilityto earn a decent living in order tosupport your family and build abetter future.Many of your former careers andmany professions are now closed toyou without any concern to thequestion if you pose any danger tosociety or our community or not.The employment path is slow andfraught with frustration, setbacks andminimum wage jobs.THE CHANGING JOBMARKETAs we move down the road to theeconomy and jobs returning, the jobmarket is changing and so areemployers’ attitudes towards you.Many employers are finding a needto be more concerned with you arenow, what skills you bring to thetable and that is because there arealready shortages (here in Phoenix) inseveral industries like construction.CONSTRUCTION:The lack of skilled workers inconstruction is leading employers tobecome more liberal in who theyaccept than they needed to be beforethe industry improved.These days you are more likely not toget hired in construction because ofthe lack of transportation, tools andyour ability to pass a drug test thanyou are because you were in prison.Now granted…you are not gonnawork at the new INTEL Plant or forthe Mesa School District but, youwould be hard pressed to get thosejobs even if you had a cleanbackground. There is no shortage ofapplicants that want to make $25-30/HR.If you have transportation and sometools, it is easy to get a buildingtrades’ job from entry to journeylevel. Journey level applicants (5 ormore years in a trade) are now beingoffered signing bonus from $500-$2,000 - we run them in the Use JobShack almost daily.
  3. 3. RESTAURANT & SERVICEThe Restaurant and Service Industryis having its biggest boom in ageneration with new venues openingevery week. This is driven by the factthat we lost so many venues whenthe economy went south and astimes get better there is a bigdemand for dining.Also, has the economy improves,people travel, business people traveland this can be seen in the vastnumbers of ads posted every week bythe hotels and resorts here in thevalley.Even in bad times, these industrieswelcomed you if you were able to sellthem upon your skill(s) and/or yourability to answer the question “Whyshould we hire you?” correctly.The resorts have always welcomedyou (with a few exceptions basedupon your crime – which comesdown to whether or not your crimerelated to the job you applied for…carthieves are unlike to become valetparkers or burglars to become roomattendants).Resorts love you because they arevery aware of all those governmentgive-a-ways to FREE MONEY if theyhire you. This is why they ask you allof those very pointed questionsabout you and/or your family’sbackground.Why would the Hilton Corporation, abillion dollar company, care aboutyou and your little tax credit? That’seasy if you think about how manypeople the Hilton hired (nationwide)just last week.Say they hired 1,000 people. Now dothe math. $2,400+ per new hire.That is $240,000 for just one week.Remember these are tax credits sothe $240K is really like $500K. That isa half-of-a-million dollars per week.We are all in the wrong business!RETAILAs the economy improves, people arereturning to the stores and this isanother opportunity for you. Thestoresare not opening new stores asmuch as they are increasing theirsupport staff to assist the sales staff.GROCERY – RETAIL STORES:The only grocery store that WILL NOThire you because of your past isWinCo.Every other grocery store does abackground check but, if yourcrime(s) do not related to the job youare applying for…it is not a concern.The stores will look at the nature ofthe crime, the age of the crime andnow they are starting to ask aboutthe circumstances about the crime.Circumstances of the crime?Yes!As the economy improves and peoplestart to be harder to find, employersneed to distinguish between a peoplewho killed someone and someonewho killed someone to protect theirfamily.As the economy gets better,employers have to move away fromblanket “no hire” policies in order toget enough people on the worksite.With the grocery stores, you need touse common sense to realize that if Ihave theft, fraud or ID Theft
  4. 4. background, I will not get that job asa cashier but, I could have been astocker, I could have been a receiver(warehouse) or even been a courtesyclerk.Getting hired at a store comes downto availability (you need openavailability or have the illusion ofopen availability to work FT), yourdesire to do the job and yourdependability.In each of their job openings,dependability and desire are muchmore important that actualexperience. They are looking for youto having enough basic skills (mathskills, money handling, customerservice skills…ETC…) needed to teachyou to do the job.DISCLAIMER: If you have violentcrimes, domestic violence and/or sexoffences you need to look into otherindustries because of the insuranceliability of hiring you…you greatlyincrease their rates).Many times charges like shoplifting,theft and related will roadblock youfrom many jobs UNLESS you canmake a strong case for “…that wasthen and this is now…” Or if you canmake a compiling case based uponthe circumstances, you have a goodchance. Here is an example:(THIS DOESN’T WORK)“I was convicted of shoplifting thatbig screen TV.”(THIS DOES WORK)“Several years ago, I was in a verybad situation and I stole that food tofeed my babies. I knew it was wrongand to this day I live with theconsequences of that baddecision…but, in many ways it wastruly a Godsend in that it made mestop and see who and what I wasbecoming and I didn’t want this formyself nor for my babies. Since then,I had so radically changed my life andI am proud of how far I come fromthat trouble young girl…”THIS IS WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES OFTHE CRIME MEANS. See thedifference?WHAT HASN’T CHANGED?Some industries have not come tothe point where they need to bemore liberal in considering you.CLEANING JOBS: Most cleaningcompanies will NOT hire because ofthe nature of their business or theircontracts. But, you can work at ahotel or resort…Makes nosense…right?SOCIAL SERVICE/PEER SUPPORT:Here the key is the age of youroffence and if you can get an AZFingerprint Clearance Card. If you canget the clearance card, you aregolden and can work in this industry.MANUFACTURING: Your skill set ismuch more important and dependingupon how much the company needsa person with your skill set, willdetermine how liberal they arewilling to be. With companies withgovernment contracts, the age ofyour crime (being at least 7-10 yearsold), the nature of your crime (if theywant you…) and they may cut cornersand say that a Felony DWI issomething that they can work with.Get it?
  5. 5. THE MYTH OFBACKGROUND CHECKSOne of the largest barriers to yougetting a job is your own belief in themyth of background checks.This is barrier because when you seeit…you stop and walk away. Sadly,you have walked away from manyjobs that you could have gotten if youhad just applied.Background checks is a term thatmeans something different to eachemployer.Every company will run a backgroundcheck on you for different reasonsand result in totally differentoutcome.Aramark, a billion dollar corporation,does a background check. They runthis check to prove how honest youare. They demand total disclosureand will work with you if you do. Ifyou forget or don’t list an offence;they cannot hire you EVER!They do this because they are moreconcerned with who you are insteadof what you did back then. They aremore concerned with the skills thatyou bring to the table. But, if you arelying to them before they hire you,they know that they can never trustyou and thus, they don’t hire ya!Take a chance and as the old man useto say…”the worst thing that they cando is hire ya!”APPLICATION TIPSThere are a few things that you needto keep in mind about doingapplications and in dealing with thisas an issue.Always remember what Bill Clintonuse to say: “Ya only answer the partof the question that they asked ya!”There are three varieties of how thisquestion gets asked:1. Have you been convicted in thepast five years?This is conviction date not releasedate or off of parole date.2. Have you been convicted in thepast seven years?3. Have you ever been convicted?So, if I was just released after tenyears, I would answer “NO” to bothone and two. I would have to answeryes to number three.If I need to discuss this issue, checkout the below technique(s) tosuccessfully address the issue ofCIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CRIME.HOW TO DEAL WITHTHE ISSUEAs a part of years of working withVeterans who have yet to be releasedand with a general population ofreturnees, we have developedinroads into how to deal with theissue of “where have I been for thepast years?”We have developed a series oftechniques as a means to notrationalize, defend or denyresponsible for what has happened(in fact to embrace it) but to bumpemployers from their preconceiveassumptions about you as a returneeand to successfully move you (in theireyes) from the stereotype image tothe human being that you are.
  6. 6. This is critical because once you areseen as a human being instead of acartoon stereotype; it is easier forpeople to offer you help, support andforgiveness because:1. It is commonly accepted that therehas never been a perfect humanbeing…we all know people who thinkthat they are but…2. If you agree with the abovestatement. Then you must acceptthat we all have make mistakes.3. If you accept this, then it is not agreat leap to say that everyonedeserves second or even thirdchances.Our working title for this technique isthe Humanization of my crime. It is atechnique that makes a strong casefor putting a human face on whathappened to you and strongly makesthe case that that was then and I ama very different person than I wasthen. It is a three step process thataddresses the past, the present andthe plan for the future.Here is an example of howthis was created…STEP ONEA young man came into my office oneday and he was very upset, mad andsad all at the same time. I asked himwhat the problem was. He said thathe has put in hundreds ofapplications and no one will give hima chance.I asked why and he told me straightup that he had just recently got outof prison for murder and no onewould give him a chance.I asked him what he was tellingpeople and he told me that he wasupfront with them like he was withme.He was tired and thought that goingback to prison was a more agreeablething because he understood theyard and could navigate through thatbetter than he could in this worldwith its entire mean people who willnever let him get back to the life heonce had.He was dead serious about this andhe was only days away fromwhooping that old woman over thehead at Circle K and he had it soplanned out that he would make itback to the yard in time for dinner.We started talking about his chargesand it turns out that the full story(that he had edited out) was thatseveral years ago, someone brokeinto his home. He thought that hewas defending his family and a jurydisagreed with him.I said “why don’t we start theconversation with this instead of Ijust got out of jail for murder...”Think about it. If I come in and tellyou that I am a murderer, you wouldprobably be scared and would nothave anything to do with me. Right?Now, say that I come in and tell youthat several years ago, someonebroke into my home and I thoughtthat I was defending my family, youwould be thinking if you would havedone otherwise, yourself.
  7. 7. Importantly, I would have bumpedyou off of looking at me as astereotype ex-killer and moved youcloser to looking at me as a humanbeing that made a mistake.Start to see the difference?STEP TWOWe live in a vindictive society thatbelieves in punishment without endand sometimes, I believe that if couldfigure out a way to punish peopleafter their death we would andkeeping with that, we added to theconversation a summary of what hehas lost.This young man has lost everything.He lost his career, his home, hisfamily, friends…anything that hetreasured and love is gone.If I have you already bumped off ofyour stereotype image of me; then,this adds to the conversation that Ihave lost greatly and may have beenoverly punished for a mistake that Imade years ago.STEP THREETo re-enforce the concept of “thatwas then and this is now” part of theequation, this is where we putforward a plan to going forward,bring into play what efforts havebeen made to learn and move onwith his life.Here he explains that his goal goingforward is to restore as much of hisprevious life that he can. He wants tohave a career, get another home but,most importantly goal was to againhave his family and friends to beproud of him, again.This is why he is here today, this iswhy he WANTS this job and heapplied for this job because… {Inserttalking points on skills and abilities}.This become a complete, powerfulmessage and has been successfullymixed with positive employer triggerwords like “WANT” instead of “Need”and “plan going forward” instead of“help.”Then throw in his talking points on hisskills and abilities and he is bringing alot to the table that he offers in beingfocused, dedicated and implies thathe would be a productive,dependable and has the possibility togo places within the company.All this was wrapped together in aneat little script, practiced till it flowswith the right delivery and thentested on a local employer whoagreed and hired him.This same employer would not havecrossed the road to help a murdererother than to the door makes it hispersonal mission to offer this youngman a fresh start and the opportunityto rebuild his life. It is now up to theyoung man to restore his life or notbut, now, he has the chance to try.I called the employer and asked himwhy he hired the young man. Did heknow that he had been in prison formurder? The employer scolded andcorrected me by retelling me theyoung man’s story and how it was aninjustice that this young man wouldlose everything for trying to defendhis family.Once you move people off of theirstereotype perceptions and they see
  8. 8. the returnee as a human being; thebetter angels of our nature are calledout…Abraham Lincoln said that.Interestingly I see more employersstarting to be concerned with whothe applicant is instead of who theywere in the past. I see more andmore employers concerned withwhat skills and abilities that theybring to the table.This is especially true if you introducethe returnee by means of a skillbased resume where you front loadthe conversation with the skills andabilities that they have to offer.The concept is to hook them on skillsand after they want the returnee;then you say: “Oh by the way…thereis something that I need to discusswith you…”This has been an increasingproductive methodology due to aslight rebound in the economy andespecially with returnees withspecific industrial skills or abilities.The “Humanization of my crime”works with other offences with aslight rewriting of the script to theparticulars of what happened to theperson.I had a young lady who had 5-6felonies that was having a hard timefinding anyone to hire her. Anemployer would only hear 5-6felonies and that would end theinterview.Her story was that several years ago,she got mad at her bonehead,abusive husband and took a tire ironto the headlight of his truck and killedthem headlight very good, thank you!Next thing she knows is that thepolice show up and everything wentsouth…very quickly and she ended upwith 5-6 charges (felonyflight…endangerment, resisting arrestand assault on a police officer amongthem).She had a public defender who toldher that her children would havegrandchildren the next time shewould be free but, she could do adeal.She pleaded guilty and served only acouple years.When we started the story with thebelow script, she got hired!“several years ago, I got mad at myabuse husband and I killed theheadlights on his truck, the policeshowed up, I panicked and everythingwent terribly wrong afterwards but,now I am trying to build a new life formy children and that is why I am hereand I am applying for this jobbecause… {Insert talking points onskills and abilities}...”Another young man was arrested forbeing involved in wholesale, curbsidepharmaceutical sales and wedeveloped a script for him thatinvolved a very strong connectionwith “that was then and this is now.”“When I was much younger I gotcaught up in what I thought was acool, fast and furious lifestyle of fastmoney, rock and roll. How I got sodeeply involved in it…I am still tryingto figure out but the bottom line isthat I did do what I did and I stoodtall and accepted my punishment. Ihave since grown up a lot and have
  9. 9. discovered that what I really want is a normal lifeand a job that I can make into a career.This is why I appreciate this opportunity to talk withyou and demonstrate why I would be a goodcandidate for this opening because… {Insert TalkingPoints]…”The possibilities are endless and employers arestarting to respond by asking for not only what youdid but for the story behind what you did and if youtake responsibility for your actions, have grownfrom the experience and if you have an action plangoing forward; many are starting to considersecond chances.==================================================================NOW HIRING….http://www.shamrockfoodservice.com/index.php?page=employmentCHECK THIS OUT…FOUR FULL PAGES OF NEW JOBS!Many times…for many of a position…your background (unlessrelated to the job you want to do) is less important than the skillsthat you bring to the table.

  25. 25. CALL OR VISIT?SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS PUT MUCH VALUE ON FACE-TO-FACEMEETINGS AND PUT EVEN MORE VALUE UPON IN A PERSON WHOWAS INTERESTED ENOUGH TO PRESENT THEMSELVES IN PERSON.The go in person approach shows that you are motivated and that you are reallyinterested in working for them. Calling is less time consuming; you can screenmany more companies and it is easier but…you must realize that without theproper script; you might be wasting time and energy.Remember it is very easy to say no over the phone than it is to say no in person.USED JOB SHACK INSIDER…WHAT DO I NEED TO TAKE WITH ME???Well…a resume is always your “must” have document BUT…how about businesscards? Why would I need business cards? Aren’t business cards expensive?We live in a business world where business cards are considered vital pieces ofinformation…where they are collected and saved where other types of info arecommonly lost…Resumes given out at a localized job search might…may…be setaside…put into a filing cabinet…Business cards are not…they are collected and are put directly on a person’sdesk…many people in business put them in special books of reference.Business cards do not need to be expensive…All you need is MS Word, paper anda printer. MS Word has several templates for business cards…Go to newdocument…select a template…you get 3 lines…Put your name on the first…on thesecond; do NOT put your address –but some cute/lame saying like “Best WorkerEver!” and on the third; put your contact number. Print this on normal paper andhand cut your business cards…So, next week when someone quits and they are trying to remember the personthat they were talking to last week…they will not need to guess or try to find youin a stack of other resumes…your card is on their desk…SEE?===============================================================Lexus ClubDowntown-American, International401 E Jefferson StArizona Baseball ClubDowntown-American, Buffet401 E Jefferson St 0.0miFridays Front Row Sports...Downtown-American, Burgers401 E Jefferson St 0.0miStrike Zone Lounge at Bank...Downtown401 E Jefferson St
