Jobs for Ex-offenders and Felons: From Jail to a Job
Jobs for Ex-offenders and Felons: From Jail to a Job – I’m so glad you decided to stop by my page. I have been teaching ex-offenders and felons how to get jobs for many years. Through my seminars and formal classes, I have been able to help a lot of people discover exactly what it takes to get a job with a criminal record.
One day at the end of one of my classes, a student came to me and expressed how much he had learned and how his despair had turned to confidence. He thought that because he was a felon, he had no chance at getting a job. After taking my class, he could not wait to get to work putting what he had learned to good use. He suggested that I put the lessons from my classes into writing. Bear in mind, I am not a writer by trade, but he was absolutely right. By making this knowledge widely available, I can help many more people who felt hopeless, get jobs. Thanks Roosevelt!
I often get the question, “Mr. Mayo, you’ve never been to prison. What do you know about getting a job with a criminal record?” It’s true, I have never been to prison. My book is not about prison. It’s about putting prison behind you. The only way you can do that is by getting a job and becoming a contributing member of society. To get a job with a criminal record you will have to do learn to do two things, effectively market yourself and overcome objection. That is what I have been success teaching for many years.
I am extremely proud of this book. It contains the very best of the “street-tested” tips, tools, and techniques that I have used to teach thousands of ex-offenders and felons how to get jobs.
If you have a criminal record, work with ex-offenders and felons or you want to help someone you care about, you will love this book.
Studies have proven that felons with full time jobs are far less likely to go back to prison.
This book is a “must-have” for all ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs!

From Jail to a Job, by Eric Mayo
Okay – before you skip over this one (for those of you who have never been incarcerated) – consider investing in this book. For my dollar, this is hands-down the best, most practical job search guide out there – and it’s not even available on amazon.com!Click the link to find this
SO AM I acknowledges Eric Mayo and his continued efforts and a dedication to being a “World Changer”! I have read your book and used it as a tool at my previous place(s) of employment and I highly recommend it. Ex-offenders have a place in my heart too and I believe they should be given a fair chance as well. I say to you continue to break down barriers in this bitter-sweet world. “I am my brother’s keeper…” is what Jesus spoke not ” I am my successful, good looking, rich, educated, etc…brother’s keeper….” Who’s your brother?
Let’s get it right people! Give an ex-offender a chance to re-integrate back into society and become a
positive change in this world.
SO AM I salutes Eric Mayo this month as “World Changer”
Thank you Eric for being a “World Changer…”
Very Informative! There is some basic information, and some that you can only get from a professional like Eric Mayo. It’s not a long read, but it gets to the point. Anyone who needs advice in finding a job should buy this. Also check Eric Mayo out on Facebook, he gives extra information.Published Review by customer Mary B.
Being an instructor in the Texas Prison System, this book is truly informative and well written. Every former offender and their families ought to own this book and use this book to assist in the job search. As an instructor I use this material to get my guys ready to rejoin the “free world”. Eric reminds the offenders that the rules of the game have changed for them, now that they have been convicted. His advice is poignant and easy to follow.Published Review by customer J. L. Farquhar
Mr. Mayo provides some practical advice for those being released from jail or prison and engaged in a job search. I have seen, first hand, in working with women in a re-entry program, how daunting it can be to find a job with a future, or any job for that matter. They struggle with how to explain the break in employment and how to answer interview questions. This provides some reasonable answers.Published Review by customer Susan Swope
