I am a mom of 4 who thought she was home free with her oldest son when he went off to college. My serious blunder? Genetics and being naive or maybe just plain stupid.

    Sh*t (excuse my French too). Keven will be looking for a job in the near future and at age 21 has NEVER been employed, he has a felony and although he’s off the charts intelligent, he has a writing disability and his handwriting looks like that of a 3rd grader. I don’t know what people that want to work are suppose to do if no one will give them a chance.

    Just a suggestion here, but here is what has worked for my daughter. Meetings, meetings, meetings. Having a sponsor, etc. It is just like networking in the “normie” world, if that makes sense. Every job she had came from leads picked up in meetings. Making it known that she was unemployed and eager, led to people handing her numbers to call, etc, and paving the way. She had three icky jobs before this one, but that showed willingness. And the payoff was, that one lady who observed her for almost a year, decided to go out on a limb and told her to apply at the company she worked for. Come to find out, it is ALL people in recovery, and you have to have significant clean time and an “in” to be considered. (She loves this job and feels she’s found a good fit – they love her and have already increased her responsibilities triple-fold.)

    The legwork in her case was the meetings, and spreading the word at those meetings, and taking the very first icky job, working it hard and well, while looking for a slightly less icky job. Again found through putting out the word at meetings that she was looking for an even better job…

    This same technique worked for LeBoyfriend, and he worked icky jobs for almost a year before his parents trusted him enough to bring him back into their trucking company jobs. And it was his idea, but they decided to give him the chance, after he offered to go to the company they would be independent contractors (driving) for, and was up front and honest about all of it. He will pay for supervised drug tests at an industrial clinic, whenever they ask! (they have not asked yet!)

    There are leads for jobs (possibly icky) through most probation and parole offices also. They lead to better stuff down the road….

    If he is motivated to do the leg work, to pound pavement, to repeat visits at local fast food restaurants or grocery stores or walmarts or car wash facilities or hardware stores, etc, shake hands and ask once again if they have any openings, etc, something will turn. My DH told our daughter she needed to be in their faces, smiling and repeating herself, to the point where hiring her would be a relief for them! I think that’s true for anyone, in this crappy economy! It’s not easy!!

    I’m praying for him, and your family, and Barbara, you know I’m praying for you and K too!! Hugs!

      That is excellent advice but J does not do NA/AA. BUT, I guess if he wants a job he will need to do that because…to actually know J is the selling point, otherwise he just a person on a piece of paper with a record that pops up.

      I don’t know if I agree with your husband on the Toys R Us, Walmart, Target, Home Depot “in your face” advice. J would have been hired for that Lowes job and the Sam’s club and a Supermarket job. They had given him hours and days and even the department he would be working in and then that application goes to the next level and some where at a corporate level he is un-hirable.

      The job he really wanted was in the Bakery at Sam’s Club. It appealed to his creative side and he was told advancement was absolutely possible in a short time. He was totally up front with the guy interviewing him and that guy didn’t seem to have any problem with his past. It is the step after that where it all goes to hell. I wonder how upfront J is actually being. I think he tries to pass it off like a DUI kind of thing but he is telling me that is not the case.

      Your husband’s advice would probably work for a local restaurant that is not corporate like a Chili’s or a Olive Garden. Those are the jobs that seem to be hardest hit by the economy. A local pizzaria that had 3 servers on a night now may only have one with all 3 people fighting to work more hours etc…

      There is something out there for J. He just needs to do the legwork which again is dependent on us running him around…which I would gladly do! It is not that J is lazy but he is just so tentative about what so and so will think and he knows someone who works there and they will find out and on and on…Something that really should be a simple task has turned into a monumental feat, with incredible pressure.
