There’s a lot of changes on Exoffenders that we’d like to tell you about. First, we’ve finished a large update to the site, which took us a lot longer than we had thought it would. Each time we thought it was ready to go, something broke or didn’t function right. Those problems have been fixed, and we’re done with the launch of the new Exoffenders site.
The new look was done to make the site more user friendly. We get a lot of visitors that use or site on their phone. The old look wasn’t great for mobile users, so we’ve tried to make it more mobile-friendly. We hope this makes it easier for our visitors to find what they’re looking for on their phones.
The employment section has been changed quite a bit, with some additional information on each companies page. There is a new feature on these, which is the overall user score for that company. We use the user feedback we receive on that company to create the score. There’s a brief overview on how those numbers are done here. The list of companies has also been updated, with some new additions as well as some removals.
Some of the other updates to the site include the reentry section, which has been updated to include information on five more states. The articles section now has all of the posts and articles that used to be scattered around the site. Also, the local section is the job search engine that is currently being fine tuned.
We hope the new design of the site works better for everyone. If you have any feedback or problems with it, please use the contact us form and let us know.
Also, we are still looking for one or two more ex-offenders to participate in an awesome project aimed at changing the way employers view ex-offenders. This is part of the national movement for change that has been mentioned in previous posts. If you are interested in helping out and live in or close to one of the areas listed below, please fill out this form. Thank you in advance for your interest in this.
