Mock Job Fairs in Prison--Tracking Participants

Volume 64 Number 1
June 2000

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) has long attempted to prepare inmates for transition to community life through a variety of educational programs. In recent years, the BOP has added mock job fairs to their efforts. Soon-to-be-released inmates learn how to prepare a portfolio of documenting information, and how to handle themselves in interviews with representatives of "real world" companies.
