The Out and Employed blog provides news, career advice and job resources for ex-offenders. This site grew out of an employability skills course I teach at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center. It’s designed to be a place where former students and others looking to turn their lives around can come to share stories, ask questions and find information.
As for me, I’m a journalist with a long-time interest in criminal justice. In addition to teaching and writing about legal issues, I’ve worked with probationers in Virginia and Indiana. Please feel free to join the conversation and post your questions and/or comments. I promise I’ll do what I can to help.
