There is compelling evidence that unemployment contributes to an increased rate of parole revocation, which is a major risk factor for recidivism.  Individuals released from correctional facilities often find that the search for employment is hindered by barriers such as lack of educational credentials, limited work history, poor planning skills, and employers’ prejudice about hiring ex-offenders. 


Five agencies worked together as part of AZ PROJX/Office of Workforce Development Specialists, with FCC-Tucson teaching staff, to explore barriers to employment for ex-offenders, and are committed to busting barriers whenever and wherever possible.  The site welcomes feedback and updates from various resources listed here, and information will be updated as soon as possible.

A resume is an important part of the job search process. Having a resume is a professional way to show a potential employer what you are capable of. It is a chance to sell yourself on your accomplishments and experience. A resume is given to potential employers before interviews and can be given in person at interviews. While it may seem like a confusing and difficult process, making a resume can be fun and easy. Ask for help in creating your resume, as it is one of the most important parts of the hiring process. 


  1. Make a professional resume- if needed, get help from a neighbor, friend, relative, or through an agency.
  2. Keep the resume clean and uncluttered. A streamlined and straightforward resume is usually appealing to the company. 
  3. Check spelling and grammar- most programs offer assistance with spell checking documents, but check to make sure that there are no words left out or repeated words. 
  4. Keep it short. Most employers prefer to have all information on one page. They may receive a large number of applicants, and if you have multiple pages in your resume, it may get lost. 
  5. Tailor your resume. The goals that you put down on your resume may not apply to each job you are applying to, so make any necessary changes to your resume before you submit to a position. 
  6. Details. It is not necessary to list each job that you have had. A resume serves as a brief list of what your best accomplishments are. On an application, there will be space for all jobs that you need to list. 
  7. Contact information. Ensure that your name, address, phone number, and email address are easily identifiable. If necessary, you can make the font or size bigger to make it stand out to employers.  
  8. Save. Save a copy to your computer so that you can change or edit it easily. Print out a stack so that they are easily accessible when you get called to an interview.




Preparing for your Interview

  1. Speak politely and clearly on the phone. This can help you to appear confident and professional.
  2. Clarify what the position is for and what you would be doing. This will ensure that you understand the position you are going for, and it shows an interest in the position.
  3. Make sure to write down the correct full address, phone number, time, and person you will be meeting with. It may help to ask for major cross streets to find the location easier.
  4. Ask if there is any documentation or paperwork that you will need to bring. Some interviews may ask for an identification card, social security card, or proof of education.
  5. Thank them for their time and confirm that you will attend. Repeat the information back to them out loud, so that if there are any mistakes, you will get the correct information.
  6. Write down the interview information and keep it in a safe place. If you forgot or need to verify the location or time, you will know where to look.
  7. If you need to reschedule your interview, call as soon as possible and request a different time. Sometimes unexpected events can come up, and you may need to change the time or date of the location. Calling ahead and asking for help to reschedule looks better than not going.
  8. Research the company. Do a quick internet search to find out basics so that you are prepared. This can help the employer see that you are interested in the company and go the extra mile.
  9. Allow enough time in your day, including transportation, to ensure that you arrive on time the day of the interview. This may include researching bus routes or asking for a ride.
  10. Lay out your clothes the night before. Make sure that your interview clothes are clean and wrinkle free. Make a great first impression. Have transportation set up, and resumes and paperwork ready to go. 



Dressing for your Interview:


Always dress for success. Whether you are applying for a job in a warehouse, or for a position to be a vice-president, it is important to always put your best foot forward. Dressing in a professional manner will let your prospective employer know that you are serious about wanting to work there, and it will also show that you are making an effort.

General Tips

  3.       Try not to overly apply makeup

  4.       Ensure that you have clean hands and fingernails

  5.       Consider body modifications: Some employers do not mind tattoos or piercings, however it is best to try to keep them under wraps until you know the company policy. Err on the side of caution and keep covered during your interview. If hired, then ask about the policy for tattoos and piercings. 





Dress for success - Wear nice clothing, including a suit and tie, if possible, or wear a clean button down or polo shirt with slacks and polished shoes.

Arrive on time - It is preferable to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your interview.


Bring a copy of your resume- In case the interviewer does not have a copy, have spares to refer to.


Turn off your cell phone- Even when waiting to be called, stay off your phone, you will appear more professional.


Prepare for common interview questions- Lists of these questions can be available online. An employer may ask "why are you interested in this position", "what are your strengths and weaknesses", among other questions. Be prepared and practice your answers for these types of questions.


Sell Yourself- This is the time to make your case to your potential employer. Tell the interviewer interesting facts about yourself, including things you are good at, enjoy doing, and any hobbies that you have.


Be positive! - You are already on the interview, which means they are interested in you. Be confident and happy during the interview.


Mannerisms- Shake hands with your interviewer, make good eye contact, and speak in a clear and upbeat way.


Follow up questions- Be prepared to ask any follow up questions, such as things you want to know about the position, about the company, and when you may expect to hear back about the position. It shows the employer that you are interested in the position in the company.


Follow up after the interview- Send a follow up email or phone call, thanking the interviewer for their time, and express your continued interest in working for the company
