The April 2014 Update – Jobs, Voting, and Expungement

april 2014 update

It’s been a little bit since there has been any update here on Exoffenders. I’ve added about 15 new companies to the jobs list, as well as removed a few. There’s also a few minor changes here and there to other sections. Hopefully the additions and changes will be helpful to ex-offenders. I’ve received a lot of emails over the past month regarding information on expungement. Sadly, I don’t know the laws for each state so I haven’t been able to answer these questions for the most part. Since it is becoming a frequently asked topic, I’m going to start … Continue reading

New Lesson in Job Skill Training

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to work on this site, and I’m trying to make up for lost time.

March Update for Exoffenders

I would just like to give a brief update on a few things regarding Exoffenders. There hasn’t been much going on that has been visible lately. That’s about to change though. I’ll be working on the resources sections of the site. This includes the reentry & state assistance page as well as the resources for ex-offenders page. This is something that just hasn’t been worked on in a bit, and it needs to be finished. My goal is to have every state finished by the end of April, but hopefully I’ll finish it sooner. Arizona will be up today, and … Continue reading

Job Skills Training – Lesson 1

So I’ve completed the first lesson in the job skills training series on web development. It’s a very basic overview of some things. It should lay a foundation for ex-offenders who want to learn this skill. Future lessons will dive deeper into more advanced things. I’m hoping to have at least one lesson done a week, but I’m having some personal issues at the moment and don’t know how much time I’ll have to dedicate to this project. I think that I will be able to finish, at minimum, one per week though. So if you’re interested in learning a … Continue reading

I’m happy to announce that I’m going to be starting some free job skill training for ex-offenders. I’m a web developer by trade, and my goal with this is to teach ex-offenders some of the things I know. I’m going to start a series of “online classes” and tutorials to teach someone without any knowledge of building a webpage how to do it. All of this information will be accessible 24/7, so you don’t need to be on at a certain time and date to learn. While my goal is to help the visitors of Exoffenders.net, this information will be … Continue reading
