FINDING YOUR WAY HOME AFTER PRISON - UPDATE
Over the years, we have worked with many job seeking consumers that were trying to find a way to come back home and to start their life over.
It is a hard process because we live in a society that fears their return and out of that blind fear; society seeks to control or banish you.
Society has forgotten that they are your next door neighbor, your cousins; your own children or those they are someone else’s child from here in our community.

  1. 1. SPECIAL UMOM THURSDAY NIGHT ONLY JOB BOOK FINDING YOUR WAY HOME AFTER PRISON - UPDATE Over the years, we have worked with many job seeking consumers that were trying to find a way to come back home and to start their life over. It is a hard process because we live in a society that fears their return and out of that blind fear; society seeks to control or banish you. Society has forgotten that they are your next door neighbor, your cousins; your own children or those they are someone else’s child from here in our community. Society has successfully turned them into stereotype instead of a real
  2. 2. person This is society’s way of mitigating it’s lack of concern for them and/or its unwillingness to give them a second chance. One of the hardest parts of the effort to return to a normal life centers upon the need of employment and towards the ability to earn a decent living in order to support a family and build a better future. Many of your former careers and many professions are now closed to returnees without any concern to the question if they pose any danger to society or our community or not which makes the employment path slow and fraught with frustration, setbacks and minimum wage jobs. “MAKING DO WITH THE WORLD AS IT IS AND ADAPT YOURSELF TO GET TO WORK” – From Getta A. Long PhD. Let’s face the truth. The world is what it is and all of the could of, should of and might of will not change it nor help your current needs. In fact, it is up to you to go the extra mile, make the extra effort and to then work harder than the person who doesn’t have barriers. That’s the reality of your situation and the sooner you accept your mission, the sooner you will achieve employment. It is very easy to give up, to blame society and use the difficulty of the situation as your excuse for doing nothing…”No one will hire me!” “No one will hire me!” is a very easy way to shut down any conversation with case managers, friends or family because they will be hard pressed to call you on this. It becomes a very seductive way to avoid painful conversations that focus on what you believe is your failure(s). It becomes so seductive that you start to believe it too. The problem is that once you start to buy in on the concept, it becomes truth but, is it reality? The answer is to you, for friends, family and support team it becomes a false reality. The question to ask is complicated because you must be truthful with yourself about how much of this is true and how much of this was your fabrication to protect your feeling and/or to get people off your back. The real answer is that it is not. The real answer lies in the fact that you let your past experience(s) or one or two recent experience(s) prevent you from moving on with your job search and thus your life. THEN WHAT IS WRONG? The truth is that you are unprepared to re-enter the work world, you have not been given the knowledge, the actual tools or guidance that you need
  3. 3. to succeed. Yes, society…the system has failed you. That true. But, what is also true is the fact that it is your life and thus, your duty to seek this out, obtain and utilize this to help yourself. The key factor is that you must help yourself. This is critical because it is your life and if you do not care enough about yourself to do these little things; how can you depend upon yourself to achieve the major things? You can’t is the correct answer and in this way, the system wins by an easy default because you gave up or even didn’t try. Make sense? The lack of knowledge about job seeking mixed with your willingness to live in a world where your presence is road blocked by your past experiences and if you are dead in the water with your present, how can you have a future? THE SOLUTIONS ARE EASY BUT REQUIRE WORK! The answer starts with the concept of throwing to the curb your mindset of “Been there…Done that!” Let this go and accept every new challenge on its own merits and accept that this is a time to take risks. Do not reject a new opportunity based upon what has happened before. Without taking chances or by accepting the risk that you might get turned down, how can you ever win? You can’t! It doesn’t work that way because you are not so highly skilled or experience that employers are lined up to hire you because there are only a couple of people (in America) that can do what you do. If you are that skilled, you don’t need our help. Is it hard? Yes, it is! Will the path be hard? Yes it will! Will you succeed? That depends TOTALLY on YOU! The question I ask is: “Why not take the chance…roll them dice and play the hand that has been dealt to you without folding…JUST MAYBE…MAYBE…the dealer will draw twenty-three instead of twenty-one. If you don’t play…like the lottery guys say: “If you don’t play (try) then you can’t win!” Start to see the picture? THE URBAN LEGEND: Background Check... - From Uncle Bob, Used Job Shack How many jobs opportunities have you walked away from and didn’t even try to do because you saw the phrase “background check?” Why did you do that? Was it because you have “Been there…Done that…” and you saw no reason to get rejected again. Did you take a chance? Did you call (talk to the employer) to ask them what was the purpose of the background check?
  4. 4. Naw? Didn’t think so because your ego and the fear of rejection tripped you up and prevented you from getting a job where they would have hired you in a heartbeat. How do I know that? How do you know it’s not true? You didn’t try…Oh well! What you didn’t discover was that the phrase “background check” means something different to each person who uses the word. There are companies who run a background check on you to see if you are truthful. To these employers who you are now is more important than what you did. They are looking for honesty, people who they can trust. Always Call an employer and ask them what they mean by "pass" - you might be surprised as to the differences you will see...take the chip off the shoulder...How many jobs did you not apply for because you assumed that you knew what "pass" means or if it even applied to your circumstances...You lose nothing by calling... WAY TO CALL TIPSTER: Don't start with "ya hire felons?" Start with "I am _______(JOB TITLES) with ____years of experience, I can do____(*insert your talking points on your skills and abilities...then say "Oh, by the way...what does "pass a background check mean?" Get it...Get them wanting to hire you and then drop the "F" Word on them... At the other end, of this endless discussion…your buddies and your uncle told you not to list your background. Well, there is some truth with this and small companies cannot afford the $35-40 to test everyone. The problem with this argument is that if the employer does run a check, you lied and they can’t trust you and that is why they didn’t hire you. Worse yet, later on, they decide to run a check or you are up for a promotion (that requires one) and now they know they can’t trust you because you have been lying all the time you worked for them. Start to see how complicated this becomes. More importantly is the stress and fear that you have to live with as you hope no one finds out…that will have a serious effect upon the quality of your life – you know what it is like to live with fear…the fear of losing everything, again…the rejection or embarrassment that its discovery would mean. Man, that’s stress! Bottom line is that a job gotten by crook is not worth a job time worth of fear and stress…is it? Be honest but know how to talk about it and to put it into human terms that people can identify with and understand. Compassion begins with understanding…just a thought.
  5. 5. “This is how you granddaddy got his job but, you say that you are too embarrassed to merely contact or visit an employer to ask about a job? If they could do this, why it is so hard to contact an employer, sell yourself and then ask “oh, what do you mean by pass a background test?” If they were still around…think that they would still do the same? Would they give up this easy?” You know that answer too.
  6. 6. THE CHANGING JOB MARKET As we move down the road to the economy and jobs returning, the job market is changing and so are employers’ attitudes towards you. Many employers are finding a need to be more concerned with you are now, what skills you bring to the table and that is because there are already shortages (here in Phoenix) in several industries like construction. CONSTRUCTION: The lack of skilled workers in construction is leading employers to become more liberal in who they accept than they needed to be before the industry improved. These days you are more likely not to get hired in construction because of the lack of transportation, tools and your ability to pass a drug test than you are because you were in prison. Now granted…you are not gonna work at the new INTEL Plant or for the Mesa School District but, you would be hard pressed to get those jobs even if you had a clean background. There is no shortage of applicants that want to make $25-30/HR. If you have transportation and some tools, it is easy to get a building trades’ job from entry to journey level. Journey level applicants (5 or more years in a trade) are now being offered signing bonus from $500$2,000 - we run them in the Use Job Shack almost daily. RESTAURANT & SERVICE The Restaurant and Service Industry is having its biggest boom in a generation with new venues opening every week. This is driven by the fact that we lost so many venues when the economy went south and as times get better there is a big demand for dining. Also, has the economy improves, people travel, business people travel and this can be seen in the vast numbers of ads posted every week by the hotels and resorts here in the valley. Even in bad times, these industries welcomed you if you were able to sell them upon your skill(s) and/or your ability to answer the question “Why should we hire you?” correctly. RESORTS, HOTEL & FREE MONEY The resorts have always welcomed you (with a few exceptions based upon your crime – which comes down
  7. 7. to whether or not your crime related to the job you applied for…car thieves are unlike to become valet parkers or burglars to become room attendants). Resorts love you because they are very aware of all those government give-a-ways to FREE MONEY if they hire you. This is why they ask you all of those very pointed questions about you and/or your family’s background. Why would the Hilton Corporation, a billion dollar company, care about you and your little tax credit? That’s easy if you think about how many people the Hilton hired (nationwide) just last week. Say they hired 1,000 people. Now do the math. That is $2,400+ per new hire. That means $240,000 for just one week. Remember these are tax credits so the $240K is really like $500K. That is a half-of-a-million dollars per week. We are all in the wrong business! RETAIL As the economy improves, people are returning to the stores and this is another opportunity for you. The stores are not opening new stores as much as they are increasing their support staff to assist the sales staff. GROCERY – RETAIL STORES: The only grocery store that WILL NOT hire you because of your past is WinCo. Every other grocery store does a background check but, if your crime(s) do not related to the job you are applying for…it is not a concern. The stores will look at the nature of the crime, the age of the crime and now they are starting to ask about the circumstances about the crime. CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CRIME? Yes! As the economy improves and people start to be harder to find, employers need to distinguish between a people who killed someone and someone who killed someone to protect their family. As the economy gets better, employers have to move away from blanket “no hire” policies in order to get enough people on the worksite. With the grocery stores, you need to use common sense to realize that if I have theft, fraud or ID Theft background, I will not get that job as a cashier but, I could have been a stocker, I could have been a receiver (warehouse) or even been a courtesy clerk. Getting hired at a store comes down to availability (you need open availability or have the illusion of open availability to work FT), your desire to do the job and your dependability.
  8. 8. In each of their job openings, dependability and desire are much more important that actual experience. They are looking for you to having enough basic skills (math skills, money handling, customer service skills…ETC…) needed to teach you to do the job. DISCLAIMER: If you have violent crimes, domestic violence and/or sex offences you need to look into other industries because of the insurance liability of hiring you…you greatly increase their rates). Many times charges like shoplifting, theft and related will roadblock you from many jobs UNLESS you can make a strong case for “…that was then and this is now…” Or if you can make a compiling case based upon the circumstances, you have a good chance. Here is an example: (THIS DOESN’T WORK) “I was convicted of shoplifting that big screen TV.” (THIS DOES WORK) “Several years ago, I was in a very bad situation and I stole that food to feed my babies. I knew it was wrong and to this day I live with the consequences of that bad decision…but, in many ways it was truly a Godsend in that it made me stop and see who and what I was becoming and I didn’t want this for myself nor for my babies. Since then, I had so radically changed my life and I am proud of how far I come from that trouble young girl…” THIS IS WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CRIME MEANS. See the difference? WHAT HASN’T CHANGED? Some industries have not come to the point where they need to be more liberal in considering you. CLEANING JOBS: Most cleaning companies will NOT hire because of the nature of their business or their contracts. But, you can work at a hotel or resort…Makes no sense…right? SOCIAL SERVICE/PEER SUPPORT: Here the key is the age of your offence and if you can get an AZ Fingerprint Clearance Card. If you can get the clearance card, you are golden and can work in this industry. Peer Support usually requires that you had the same barriers in your past. MANUFACTURING: Your skill set is much more important and depending upon how much the company needs a person with your skill set, will determine how liberal they are willing to be. With companies with government contracts, the age of your crime (being at least 7-10 years old), the nature of your crime (if they want you…) and they may cut corners and say that a Felony DWI is something that they can work with. Get it?
  9. 9. SMART APPLICATION TIPS Betcha you said my granddaddy. Why? Not because he was your granddaddy but, rather because he started by helping himself instead of depending upon the kindness of random strangers…right? HERE IS ONE WAY TO HELP YOUR SELF: There is an ancient Chinese Proverb that “If I (firstly) ask who will help me, then, no one will help me because if I am not worthy of my own help…then why should others waste their efforts?” See the difference between the picture of your granddaddy and this guy? Take a long look because there is a critical difference between the two pictures. Your granddaddy didn’t ask “who is gonna help me?” They took their own action, made their own case and created their own opportunities that put them to work. This second guy may not be asking for charity but, isn’t he depending on it? The second guy starts with the concept that I am not going to help myself…so who else will? Who would you rather help? There are a few things that you need to keep in mind about doing applications and in dealing with this as an issue. Always remember what Bill Clinton use to say: “Ya only answer the part of the question that they asked ya!” THERE ARE THREE VARIETIES OF HOW THIS QUESTION GETS ASKED: 1. Have you been convicted in the past five years? This is conviction date not release date or off of parole date. 2. Have you been convicted in the past seven years? 3. Have you ever been convicted? So, if I was just released after ten years, I would answer “NO” to both one and two. I would have to answer yes to number three. If I need to discuss this issue, check out the below technique(s) to successfully address the issue of CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CRIME.
  10. 10. HOW TO DEAL WITH THE ISSUE – From Getta A. Long PhD. The best way to deal with the issue of your background is burry it back to the back reaches of the interview where (if) you have successfully done your job of properly showcasing your skills and abilities so that the employer needs/wants the skill sets that you properly brought to the table; then, it will be a much easier conversation and this means a greater chance of a job. Any fisherman will tell you that you catch many more catfish with good bait than an empty hook. Think of employers as catfish and the bait is your skills and abilities. The employers, as we have said, most times…don’t care what you did but, they do care who you are now, how well your skills and abilities match up or exceed what they are looking for and (really) unless your crimes relate to the type of work they need you to do – then there is no connection and your mighty mountains of career ending felonies has been reduced to a speed bump along the road to getting hired. Remember, we tend to blame the biggest elephant in the room for all of the poop and we need to realize and understand that (sometimes) it is not the felonies that were the true barrier but, rather the side effects of the felonies: AKA…lack of a driver’s license, lack of a vehicle, destroyed credit, judgments, fines, restraining orders, drug issues, family problems or those outstanding warrants that you failed to mention. Once we understand that we are dealing with trying to rebuild and flip our lives (career) to attract a new buyer (employer) and we have many issues that will prevent us from getting top dollar; it is then, we realize how critical presentation, packaging, showcasing and marketing are to us getting a good offer. The solution may not always be easy but, it is workable and it can be done if you are willing to commit all your energy, talent and creativity to being a success or you can blow it off by saying “I’m a felon…Nobody will hire me!” It’s your call…it is your life, your future not mine. How much is that future REALLY worth to you? Then invest you time and energy according to how much it is worth you. WHERE HAVE I BEEN FOR THE PAST YEARS? - From Uncle Bob, Used Job Shack As a part of years of working with Veterans who were yet to be released and with a general population of returnees, we have developed inroads into how to deal with the issue of
  11. 11. “where have I been for the past years?” We have developed a series of techniques as a means to not rationalize, defend or deny responsible for what has happened (in fact to embrace it) and to bump employers from their preconceive assumptions about you as a returnee (criminal) and to successfully move you (in their eyes) from the stereotype image to the human being that you are. This is critical because once you are seen as a human being instead of a cartoon stereotype; it is easier for people to offer you help, support and forgiveness because: • It is commonly accepted that there has never been a perfect human being…we all know people who think that they are but… • If you agree with the above statement. Then you must accept that we all have make mistakes. • If you accept that we all have made mistakes, errors in judgment while doing things or say things that we regret but, know we cannot take back…Agree? Then is it a great leap of faith to say that everyone deserves second or even third chances and wouldn’t you want one too? Our working title for this technique is “THE HUMANIZATION OF MY CRIME.” It is a technique that makes a strong case for putting a human face on what happened to you and strongly makes the case that that was then and I am a very different person than I was then. It is a three step process that addresses the past, the present and the plan for the future. Here is an example of how this was created… The concept builds off of the theory that there was a reason that you did what you did (not shifting the blame because that’s denial and then that is another issue for the employer to deal with) and the back story is very interesting and can turn around an employer’s perception(s) of you. We have had many successes with the integration of the human factor into cold, official statistics of what you did. By telling the story from the viewpoint of humanization, we have soften the hardest hearts NOT OUT OF PITY but, out of the understanding that we have all done things we wish we could take back and this creates a better
  12. 12. understanding of who you are right now (remember an important employee concern). By creating a better understanding between the employer and you, there is a strong likelihood of their support of you getting hired. ============================================== upfront with them like he was with us. He was tired and thought that going back to prison was a more agreeable thing because he understood the yard and could navigate through that better than he could in this world with its entire mean people who will never let him get back to the life he once had. He was dead serious about this and he was only days away from whooping that old woman over the head at Circle K and he had it so planned out that he would In a clinical study, we had a make it back to the yard in time young man came into the office for dinner. that was very upset, mad and As we started talking about his sad all at the same time. When charges, it turns out that the full asked what the problem was, he story (that he had edited out of said that he has put in hundreds his current employment of applications and no one will presentation) was that several give him a chance. years ago, someone broke into When he was asked why and he his home. He thought that he said straight up that he had just was defending his family and a recently got out of prison for jury disagreed with him. murder and no one would give The immediate solution centers him a chance. Asked if he was on “why don’t we start the really telling people in that conversation with this instead of manner, he said that he was I just got out of jail for murder...” CASE IN POINT
  13. 13. Think about it. He was coming in and telling employers that he was a just released murderer and he was probably scaring the employers and that would be good reason as to why none of them would have anything to do with him. Now, say we chance his presentation with a story about (several years ago) someone broke into his home and he I thought that he was defending his family…wouldn’t you be thinking if you would have done otherwise? Importantly, by changing the way he told the story (NOT THE FACTS) would bump even a coldhearted person into looking at him as a human being who made a terrible, regrettable mistake. Start to see the difference? OPTIONAL STEP TWO We live in a vindictive society that believes in punishment without end and sometimes, I believe that if could figure out a way to punish people after their death we would and keeping with that, we added to the conversation a summary of what he has lost. This young man had lost everything. He lost his career, his home, his family, friends…anything that he treasured and love is gone. He was left alone, penniless but, the greatest lost was that people would see him coming and cross the street to avoid him because he was a self-confessed murderer. Putting this all together into a list was depressing for him but, it became a powerful tool in dealing with the issue of punishment and once you see the real human factor in these abstract arguments on punishment, one quickly sours for the need to extract your own third-party punishment. This leads to an almost universal conclusion that he has suffered lost (greatly) and at this point, he may have been overly punished for a mistake that I made years ago. OPTIONAL STEP THREE To re-enforce the concept of “that was then and this is now” part of the equation, this is where we put forward a plan to going forward, bring into play what efforts have been made to learn and move on with his life. Here he explains that his goal going forward is to restore as
  14. 14. much of his previous life that he can. He wants to have a career, get another home but, most importantly goal was to again have his family and friends to be proud of him, again. This is why he is here today, this is why he WANTS this job and he applied for this job because… {Insert talking points on skills and abilities}. This become a complete, powerful message and has been successfully mixed with positive employer trigger words like “WANT” instead of “Need” and “plan going forward” instead of “help.” Then throw in his talking points on his skills and abilities and he is bringing a lot to the table that he offers in being focused, dedicated and implies that he would be a productive, dependable and has the possibility to go places within the company. CONCLUSION: HIRED All this was wrapped together in a neat little script, practiced till it flows with the right delivery and then tested on a local employer who agreed and hired him. This same employer would not have crossed the road to help a murderer other than to the door makes it his personal mission to offer this young man a fresh start and the opportunity to rebuild his life. It is now up to the young man to restore his life or not but, now, he has the chance to try. I called the employer and asked him why he hired the young man. Did he know that he had been in prison for murder? The employer scolded and corrected me by retelling me the young man’s story and how it was an injustice that this young man would lose everything for trying to defend his family. THE “HUMANIZATION OF MY CRIME” WORKS WITH OTHER OFFENCES With a slight rewriting of the script to the particulars of what happened to the person. Another case study centered on a young lady who had 5-6 felonies that was having a hard time finding anyone to hire her. An employer would only hear 56 felonies and that would end the interview. Her story was that several years ago, she got mad at her bonehead, abusive husband and
  15. 15. took a tire iron to the headlight of his truck and killed them headlight very good, thank you! Next thing she knows is that the police show up and everything went south…very quickly and she ended up with 5-6 charges (felony flight…endangerment, resisting arrest and assault on a police officer among them). She had a public defender who told her that her children would have grandchildren the next time she would be free but, she could do a deal. She pleaded guilty and served only a couple years. When we started the story with the below script, she got hired! “several years ago, I got mad at my abuse husband and I killed the headlights on his truck, the police showed up, I panicked and everything went terribly wrong afterwards but, now I am trying to build a new life for my children and that is why I am here and I am applying for this job because… {Insert talking points on skills and abilities}...” AND YET ANOTHER… Another young man was arrested for being involved in wholesale, curbside pharmaceutical sales and we developed a script for him that involved a very strong connection with “that was then and this is now.” “When I was much younger I got caught up in what I thought was a cool, fast and furious lifestyle of fast money, rock and roll. How I got so deeply involved in it…I am still trying to figure out but the bottom line is that I did do what I did and I stood tall and accepted my punishment. I have since grown up a lot and have discovered that what I really want is a normal life and a job that I can make into a career. This is why I appreciate this opportunity to talk with you and demonstrate why I would be a good candidate for this opening because… {Insert Talking Points]…” The possibilities are endless and employers are starting to respond by asking for not only what you did but for the story behind what you did and if you take responsibility for your actions, have grown from the experience and if you have an action plan going forward, you too can be yet another case study of success.

  36. 36. SPECIAL AZ MILLS JOB EDITION AZ MILLS MALL JOB SEARCH GUIDE http://www.slideshare.net/fredgwest1999/26-sept-2013 THERE ARE OVER 20,000 PEOPLE WHO WORK AT AZ MILLS’ STORES At any given time there, 10-15% of these jobs are unfilled or the stores are trying to fill. That means that there are 200-300 openings available on any given time. Tracking down these jobs is very time consuming and luck plays a large part of your AZ Mills Job search. Most retail stores (180 in AZ Mills) all have the same standard: NO FRAUDS, THEFT, NO VIOLENT CRIMES NOR SO’s. Others will be reviewed based upon the age, nature of the crime and if it related to the job applied for. The lazy job seeker (least likely to find work) will wait until they see a random advertisement or wait till someone tells you about an opening. This is easy, simple but, very ineffective and a waste of valuable time. By the time you learn about any opening; you are at the back of the line and it is a very long line. The shy job seeker may start calling stores (usually at random) and ask the same question over and over again until the tire or run out of minutes on their phone – whichever comes first. They will ask: “ARE YA HIRING?” This is ineffective at best because they are calling people who do NOT know them and who are many times too busy to take the time to talk to someone they do NOT know…the standard answer is: “Apply online” or “just “No…thanks for calling!” Remember it is very easy to say no over the phone than it is to say no in person. The shy but, bold computer job seeker will try to find the stores online and apply and apply but, with 180 stores; they will tire and fade fast as this is VERY time consuming. Even if they do all 180 stores, they still are not much closer to getting a job than they were before they started. WHY?
  37. 37. Many retail managers, unless the hiring is done by a corporate recruiter instead of the store manager, will NOT take the time to go through the 50-10 new applications that they get every day. Small business owners and retail managers put much value on face-to-face meetings and put even more value upon in a person who was interested enough to present themselves in person. The go in person approach shows that you are motivated and that you are really interested in working for them. THE SUCCESSFUL JOB SEEKER WILL TAKE THE FOLLOWING STEPS. A. Take a day trip out to AZ Mills Mall. Start early. Make sure that you can get there and back ok. This involves looking at the bus schedules to know how long it will take you to get there, when the buses start and more importantly, when they stop. This will let you calculate if it is worth your while to job search here or not. B. After you determine that the location works for you, then visit the mall. Get a mall map (at the information desk). Walk the mall. Identify stores/restaurants that you are interested in working at based upon experience or interest in what they sell or what service they offer. C. Any place you are interested in; go in and talk to them about the store. Watch the store’s traffic flow, talk to some sales associates or staff to see what they are like. You would be really surprised by what people will tell you after you engage them in conversation…GOOD, BAD & UGLY…more importantly, you will now know if you want to work there or not…Can’t get that INTEL over the phone/internet…UHH??? D. If you are interested, NOW, Introduce yourself and ask if it is possible to talk to someone about “UPCOMING OPENINGS” instead of “are you hiring?” If they are not busy, most people will talk with you. Ask them their process of applying for any current or upcoming opening. IMPORTANTLY, ask them the process to follow up your application, to who you direct the follow up to and anything else that might help you join the company…subversive networking/mentoring 101. TAKE NOTES (you did bring a pen, note pad and a master application resume - business card with you…DIDN’T YA?). E. FOLLOW THROUGH AND FOLLOW UP… F. GET THE JOB AND GO TO WORK. ==========================================================
