Frustrated...I was released from prison after serving 12 years about a month and a half ago. I've never been unemployed this long before. It doesn't help that my eyesight has worsened enough over the years that I can no longer drive. I understand employers are concerned about hiring an ex-felon, but heck I'm willing to walk 1 - 2 hrs to a job interview and I have. I am college educated and was so before I went in. I have unique work experiences from those 12 years. I just want an employer to give me a chance, so I can show them that except for this one aberration from my past that kept me isolated for those years, I'm hardworking, reliable, loyal, calm, patient, and capable of learning quickly. Unlike many of the folks I served time with, I at least have family and friends who can help, but I really need to be working. Oh well.
