Center for Employment Opportunities Helps Former Inmates Find Jobs

Many released inmates are finding it hard to get their lives back. Because of the criminal records they carry with them, it is difficult to earn the trust of potential employers and find a job.

The Center for Employment Opportunities is an organization that aims to provide support to inmates who have been released and are on the hunt for a job. The organization is seeking ways to get those with criminal records a suitable job based on their levels of skill.

Last week, the organization had announced the opening of its new office in Oklahoma City. This creates more opportunities for those with criminal records living in Oklahoma City and nearby counties. The organization can help them prepare for a job application and interview, as well as find more job opportunities through partnerships with the government and other private sector venues.

According to Center for Employment Opportunities Oklahoma Director Kelly Doyle, the organization is partnering with parole officers in identifying inmates that may be in need of jobs. They are also partnering with private sectors in finding job opportunities for these people.

A recent project of the Center for Employment Opportunities is the cleanup program of the city of Moore. Some inmates who participated with the organization had helped in cleaning up debris in areas damaged by the tornado.
