About Me | felons
My name is Eric Mayo and I have been helping ex-offenders and felons get jobs for over ten years. I specialize in professional and personal development with special emphasis on life skills and job readiness training. I have over 20 years of corporate and educational experience which I use to help felons improve the quality of their lives.
Getting a job is difficult enough but getting a job with a criminal record is even tougher. I started this blog to help felons gain insight into what it takes to get a job with a record. There are a different set of challenges that felons face. They must take a totally different approach than the average person looking for a job.
I travel across the country speaking to various groups and conducting seminars designed to help ex-offenders and felons develop the skills that will help them get jobs. Most of the material I use is from my own personal experience teaching ex-offenders and felons in real life situations. Possibly the greatest problem I face is convincing them that they’re not victims. They have a situation that requires courage, commitment and determination if they are to get hired. No one is going to feel sorry for them. No one is going to give them a break. The only way they will become successful is to work hard, use all of the resources available to them and never give up.
Whenever I speak to felons, I get the same questions time and time again. I originated this blog so that felons can have their questions answered in an open forum so the answers I have will be seen by a lot of people who may have the same questions. My hope is that people will see my blog and pass on the information or even encourage other felons to submit their questions.
Please give my videos a “Thumbs Up” like and share them of Facebook so that other felons and their supporters can find them.
I also have written a book called “From Jail to a Job.” It is a step-by-step guide that has helped thousands of ex-offenders and felons get jobs. If you would like more information about my book or information on booking one of my seminars, please visit my website: www.jailtojob.com
