“The employees we have hired from Prison to Employment Connection are more prepared for the workforce than 90% of other applicants we meet. They understand the importance of punctuality, reliability, and following directions; skills imperative in any industry. In addition, their strong work ethics have lifted the performance of their team members. We look forward to continue hiring graduates from this program. They are, indeed, an asset to our company.”

“It was an exciting surprise to find that the men at the job fair were able to convey their dreams of moving on in such an articulate way.  They were not only very well prepared for their job interviews, but truly seemed to be ready for the job they were hoping to be hired for.  They were all about making eye contact, greeting me in a proper and engaging way, smiling earnestly, seeming both composed and relaxed.  Also, they were all able to speak frankly and openly in a very eloquent manner about their past, and of why they thought the job they were applying for was a good fit for them. Extraordinary!”

“I have worked in Social Enterprise for 18 years and working with the Prison Employment Connection participants and volunteers is one of the highlights of my career.  The men come to the workshop prepared and are eager to hear feedback.  It is a huge commitment to complete the program and it is an honor to work with these men on their path to gainful employment.”
