Hello my name is Shantell and I'd REALLY appreciate any help at all that you can possibly provide me. My man is a felon he is currently in work release in Steelton, Pa. The rules there are extremely strict. It's hard for him to go out and look for a job. He is a good man even though he is a felon. His crimes are not violent they're mostly drug related. I have been trying so hard searching the net for jobs for him and I keep coming up with dead ends. So I was wondering if you could possibly help me in any way possible. Maybe you know some companies in Steelton, Pa. or Harrisburg, Pa. He is a very hard and devoted working man he has just made some mistakes but who hasn't you know. If you any info at all that could be helpful or any tips it is highly appreciated and respected! Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.
I wish there was a simple solution for your friend. There is a lot of competition out there for jobs. There are a lot of people without criminal records out of work. As I suggest to a lot of ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs, the first stop should be your local One-stop Career center. there are a lot of service that can help him get on the right track. Counselors at the center can help him with resources that can help him get a job or even get training to start a new career. many counselors have experience working with people with criminal records. You can find the nearest career center here:
