You can Learn Job Skills while in Prison

A lot of people lack any kind of job skills or job search skills when they are in prison. A lot of the reasons why they are incarcerated are directly related to not being properly educated which leads them to not having proper job related skills. Once incarcerated it can become even worse if they remain isolated, uneducated and unskilled and are released back into the world expected to get some sort of gainful employment. Fortunately, there are ways that prisoners can get job training if they really want to try and turn their lives around.

The very first thing to do as with a lot of things is to simply start fresh, start from the beginning. If you are a prisoner and have no education, realize that most prisons do provide inmates with GED programs. The programs will help prepare the inmate for the GED courses and will also prepare them for the GED exams which can be given while still incarcerated. Once a GED is acquired an inmate can even go further and earn college credits as well as get an accredited degree in a field of their choice.

An inmate can start by getting information that they need by going to the prison library. Most institutions have libraries that have a lot of self help information about education and a variety of different vocational training programs offered to inmates. An inmate can simply ask at the library for all the GED information they will need.

The next step would be to put in a request for an appointment with coordinator of Education and Training at the institution. They will then go a head and assess the needs of the inmate and will then match them with the right job program. They also are there to help the inmate get information about job searches and job placement once they get out.

Inmates should also think about getting involved with work programs that might be offered at the prison. These programs will not only offer new job skills but they will also be able to earn a small amount of money for doing the work while in prison.

It's also possible that an inmate might be eligible for work release programs. These types of programs will allow those inmates that qualify to work on a real job out in the community during the day hours and then come back to the prison at night.

After the inmate is released it's important to them and their success to work closely with their parole officer to get more information on jobs and special skills for jobs. They should also ask their parole officer if there are any job search programs available to help assist them in finding work or even if there are some job placement programs that will actually help place them in a job.

Important Note: There are some employers out there who will try to take advantage of a parolees situation and expect them to work for less wages, endure harassment and expect them to tolerate it or they will send in a negative report to their parole officer. If this happens it is important to document everything and report it to your parole officer immediately, don't let it slide.

When you apply for a job you'll notice there is probably room for about five previous jobs and they generally will ask you for two or three personal or professional references. When you list all of your jobs it's important that the person you list was in management of some sort, even if they were not your immediate supervisor but you had a good relationship with them, put them down as the job reference. Of course before you do this, make sure that you ask them if it's OK if you put them down as your job reference. After you have all the references you think you will need, it will be time to test out just how good the references are.
