There is a lot of things happening here at Exoffenders.net. We’ve been doing a lot of work to our second chance jobs for felons section of the site. In addition to that, there are now re-entry resources for all 50 states. This was something the original creator of the site was working on but never finished. While it will never really be finished with new programs starting up and others closing down, we’ve done our best to build a comprehensive list.
We have gone through the huge backlog of comments dating back to April. There won’t be a delay like that ever again.
The local job search engine has had some modifications made to it and it should be a lot faster now. There’s going to be a lot of work done on that in the next week, so it might be unavailable at times. Hopefully this won’t last more than 10 to 15 minutes. Thanks to your feedback, we’ve been able to fix a lot of the issues it was having and improve the potential jobs it was showing.
We’ve done a lot of work on our second chance jobs page based on your feedback. This is our main concern with this site, and we want to provide the most accurate information we can to returning citizens.
The companies that were added in the past week or so are the ones below:
- Foot Locker
- Advance Auto Parts
- Harris Teeter
- Papa Johns
- General Motors
We’ve also removed a couple companies. These are Wholefoods and Hilton.
The last thing we’re working on is finishing up an education section with resources and information for ex-offenders wanting to go to school. This will have information about grants and what not that are available to ex-offenders. We’ll also have some information up about how to get your GED if you’re interested in doing that.
