Second Chance Job Fair for Ex-Offenders

Posted: Updated:

From Washoe County:

The Statewide Prisoner Reentry Coalition will host the second part of their two-step Career Resource and Job Fair for Ex-Offenders, March 26th at Baldini's Sports Casino. 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), each year millions of adults are incarcerated in U.S. federal, state prisons and county jails. In order to reduce the likelihood of continued criminal behavior the coalition understands the importance of identifying and linking offenders with services specific to their needs.

Ex-Offender Career Resource and Job Fairs provide individuals with the opportunity to connect with useful re-entry and faith-based organizations, along with other community agencies that will help provide referrals and resources to enhance their employment opportunities.

What:             Ex-Offender Job Fair

When:            Job Fair  
                     Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Location:        Baldini's Sports Casino, Second Floor (North Entrance)
                     865 S Rock Blvd, Sparks, NV 89431

Time:             9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The goal of the Job Fair on Wednesday March 26th is to provide job seekers with the opportunity to meet with many local employers from a wide variety of industries.

Employers it is not too late to participate.  Potential employers could become part of the federal bonding program and receive federal tax credits by hiring ex-offenders.  The Reentry Coalition is asking for local businesses and organizations to help these ex-offenders obtain resources and gain employment. Even companies that do not have job opening at this time add a vital component to this process by sharing information about their company, helping people in our community with their search for employment and fostering a greater sense of community.

The Statewide Prisoner Reentry Coalition thanks all of our partners and the community for their continued support.
