Oakhill job center prepares inmates for jobs

With employers struggling to find workers and an ex-inmate unemployment rate of 27 percent, a job center at Oakhill Correctional Institution, a minimum-security prison, recently opened to help inmates prepare for job interviews upon their release.

According to a story at wkowtv.com, as inmates approach their release date they can work with staff to create resumes, learn interviewing skills, and have computer access to the Wisconsin Job Center.

Oakhill is the first state prison to have an in-house job center.
