Our employment services are specifically tailored to meet the needs of formerly incarcerated individuals who often have strong work skills but whose criminal record can undermine their chances of obtaining employment. To that end we teach résumé and cover letter development, interviewing skills, effective job searching techniques, workplace conflict resolution, and employer expectations. In addition to job readiness training, we provide full service job development and placement for everyone enrolled in case management. Our employment team is dedicated to helping participants find and maintain employment, and assists them every step of the way.
If you are an employer, you should know about some of the benefits of hiring through the Exodus Workforce Development Office. In addition to cutting down on time spent searching for and recruiting employees, employers who use us have the assurance that all our candidates have been through rigorous soft skills and job readiness training and are hungry for a chance to show what they can do. Our extensive network of print and social media followers is eager to support businesses who believe in second chances, so we create ample opportunities for promotion of your business through our Facebook and Twitter pages as well as on our website. You may also be interested to learn more about some of the governmental incentives for hiring a formerly incarcerated individual, including the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, which can reduce your federal income tax liability by as much as $9,600 per employee, and the Federal Bonding Program, which protects those employers who practice an everyday belief in second chances.
