I helped hundreds of fellow inmates prepare resumes during my time at FCI Ashland (worked in Education Department) The best approach is to develop a resume that emphasizes and leads with specific work skills. Including a chronological employment history is still necessary, and the best way to list prison “employment “ is to simply list it as “FCI Ashland”, for example. Many employers will not necessarily recognize it as prison employment, but its best to disclose it up front. I can’t tell you how many inmates came up with glorified employment descriptions such as “US Department of Justice” which may be technically true, but will just stand out as a red flag to employers. The best approach is just to be straightforward and be prepared to answer questions about your criminal history in an interview. Oh, and make sure there are no spelling or grammar errors in the resume!
