Tarrant County felony/misdemeanor job fair back for third year

Last summer, despite a drop in the number of interested employers in the middle of the recession, organizers pulled off Tarrant County’s second annual career fair for jobseekers with criminal backgrounds. They’re back for the 3rd Annual Felony or Misdemeanor-Friendly Community Career Fair, scheduled for July 30.


The Mid-Cities Human Resource Association, Tarrant County Re-Entry Initiative, jobing.com,  and criminalbackgroundjobhelp.com are the co-sponsors. As is tradition, the sponsors aren’t identifying the location publicly, and will only identify it late in the game to jobseekers they’ve screened and approved to attend the fair.


Interested jobseekers must register at http://mysecondchance.us/, beginning April 1. Deadline to register is July 15. Registration for employers, volunteers, sponsors, and other community exhibitors is open now. Employers that attend the fairs have agreed in advance to consider jobseekers who have misdemeanors in their backgrounds, or felonies, or both.

No Job for 2010: Rickey C. Cooper

Rickeycooper Hello and Good Day,

I informed everyone on the 29Th of December 2009 that I would notify my readers the decision on the job interview I attended.

Today is Thursday the 14Th of January 2010 and I have received no call informing me to report to work with the Dallas Independent School District. 

The position with DISD that I applied for was a Instructional Technologist teaching the teachers new IT Technology. 

I do believe I would of been perfect for this position because I have IT experience in the corporate environment and the teachers could of benefited from this.

With that said I am still on the JOB Search and I will continue to keep you informed on my personal search to get back to WORK!
