X-4 Success


The term ex-offender is broad and is directed at any individual that has something on their criminal background whether a misdemeanor or felony which includes some traffic violations. The term 'ex' is defined as something 'formally' done in the past. This is not a negative connotation due to over 10 million Americans are employed with something on their criminal background and is normally predicated on occupation vs. offense. 
Some employers are sensitive, understand everyone makes mistakes and decisions are made on a case-by-case basis.
Stay Encouraged!!!
