Define key terms: felony, misdemeanor, jail, prison, formerly incarcerated, correctional supervision, reentry, and any other important CRJ terms you use in this paper. Remember, when writing, you need to write with enough details and information like the reader has no knowledge of this topic.
Find at least one job that allows or one job that denies someone from employment because an individual was formerly incarcerated/has a criminal record. These jobs can be within the field you’re interested in working in the future or not. Again, APA citations are required.
Explain the job and application requirements.
Why do you think this job allows formerly incarcerated individuals/individuals with a criminal record work within this field?
OR
Why do you think this job does not allow formerly incarcerated individuals/ individuals with a criminal record to work within this field?
These questions require students to research the answers on their own. A good resource for locating jobs are: https://www.indeed.com/ or https://www1.nyc.gov/jobs/index.page or https://www.usajobs.gov/. But feel free to use any other legitimate website.
