On that site, employers post jobs and inmates post resumes, and they can conduct virtual job interviews prior to release. The "Return for Good" website also shows the benefits an employer receives by hiring a justice-involved individual, and includes several success stories to show how the program can make a difference for a business owner and a person trying to make a new start.
