Seek Help - From An Ex Offender

Dear Editor. I am an ex offender and have been on the straight now for 3 years. I would like to contribute a piece for your blog concerning ex offenders and employment. I found it very difficult to get a job until I pulled myself together and went looking for help. I am not one for preaching but there is help out there. You have just got to find it because there isn't any way that help is going to come to you. I know probation are pulled out, but keep getting on their case and ask where you can find help to get work. Be persistent because that is the only way you can get on in this day and age. With much respect. Ex Offender. (Worcester)
