This book is all about getting back to work and turning your life around.
It gives the job seeker a bird’s-eye view of the employer’s thought process and provides a guide for turning one’s life around at 18 or 58.
By targeting the issues and concerns of those who are unfamiliar with the employment world, either because they’re seeking their first job or a re-entry job after years of being out of work, this book gives specific suggestions for overcoming unspoken concerns.
This book is for you if you are a survivor… of drug and/or alcohol addiction, of poverty and welfare, of incarceration, of domestic violence, of gang involvement, etc.
