WhenPeopleWork is an online employment matching system that aligns formerly incarcerated men and women—as well as prisoners on track to be released—with employers who already know that their job candidates from our program will be people who have been incarcerated. The "check the box" question about a criminal conviction history is eliminated, as is the stigma attached to it. The result is a fair chance at meaningful employment.

Available free of charge to job seekers and employers, the WhenPeopleWork program uses a sophisticated algorithm to accurately match an individual's skills, education, personal attributes, and experiences with the needs of hiring companies. The system can be customized to meet the specific requirements of state, municipal, and federal governments so that they can directly help to find jobs for people nearing release from their correctional facilities. The system can even be made available in prisons and jails, and the families of prisoners can access the program from their homes. For former prisoners, the program offers training on how to use this unique matching system.
