Local Business Volunteers to Help Teach Offenders Job Interview Skills
Thursday, March 25, 2010
The most important factor in determining the chances of a criminal offender’s successful return into the community is their ability to find and secure employment. On Friday, March 26 from 9:00 a.m. until Noon, The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, with the help of several local businesses will conduct a Mock Job Fair. Local professionals will help by conducting mock job interviews for criminal offenders participating in one of LPSO’s many jail diversion programs. The event will give the prospective offender job seeker a real life training opportunity by giving them the opportunity to interviewing with local human resources and other business managers.
