“We all have the ability to change the way we make choices and every one of us- formerly incarcerated or not, deserves a second chance.”
Seth Sundberg knows the value of a second chance, but also the responsibility of it. While he believes that employers should consider the formerly incarcerated, he also feels that it’s on every incarcerated individual to use their time wisely and take advantage of every resource to prepare for reintegration and transition to become more attractive candidates. Eight years after his own incarceration ended, Seth has gained a unique perspective on employers who hire the formerly incarcerated. And while each opportunity and employer is different, he’s seen the most consistent successful transitions from people who take ownership of their mistakes and possess the drive to do whatever it takes to make things right.
Seth also wants employers to understand that they won’t find harder working, more loyal employees than those given that second chance. They’re willing to learn, to contribute, and to ensure that you never regret your decision.
