If you’re interested in truck driving — and a lot of my students have been — this site
has some useful information about companies that are willing to hire ex-offenders. It also spells out what felonies will disqualify you. It’s written by a truck driver who really knows his stuff — so he doesn’t mess around when it comes to telling you what truck companies will put up with and what they won’t.
I also have to give a shout out to the Rethinking Reentry blog
, which this week introduced me to my newest favorite website, the National Reentry Resource Center
. For the longest time I’ve been looking for a site that pulls together not only the best sources of help for ex-offenders, but also some of the best practices and best thinking about how to assist former felons in rebuilding their lives. And now I’ve found it. Check it out.
