BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - If you know someone trying to get their life back on track after serving time in prison, they'll have a couple of opportunities this month that could help position them for success.
One opportunity is a job-readiness workshop scheduled for Tuesday, May 22 at the Birmingham Career Center at 3216 4th Avenue South. The fair, which runs from 12:30-4 p.m., offers a chance to practice interview skills and leave with a professional resume. While the event is free, seating is limited and participants will have to register by emailing Birmingham@alcc.alabama.gov or by calling 205-582-5200.
On May 30, a Second-Chance Job Fair is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bill Harris Arena at the Birmingham Crossplex. Both employers and job seekers are asked to register online at www.labor.alabama.gov/jobfair.
The state departments of labor and corrections are sponsoring both events along with the city of Birmingham.
