Career Planning for People with a Criminal Conviction
Career Planning for People with a Criminal Conviction is a digital resource developed to assist incarcerated individuals with job planning before release. The website is maintained by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities in partnership with Minnesota Department of Corrections to ensure that individuals have access to all resources during incarceration. Individuals can use the Assess Yourself resource to develop an understanding of interests and marketable skills, then match those findings with potential careers. Another section provides support for individuals as they create a job plan and set specific goals. The Expand Skills and Manage Your Career sections offer targeted training to help individuals become more marketable to potential employers and maintain skills necessary for specific industries. Individuals can also search a jobs database or receive guidance about how to find jobs available to those with a criminal conviction.
