The Jobs section on Remerg.com provides a robust database of community organizations dedicated to helping people prepare for and find career path jobs. The Jobs section also includes training and apprenticeship opportunities, fair chance employers, temp agencies we’ve vetted as fair chance, information for entrepreneurs, workforce and vocational rehabilitation locations, and more. We’re constantly adding to and improving this section, knowing how key this need is for people starting over.
Remerg is a proud partner on the Pathway Home Project, a four-year collaboration between the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment and the Colorado Department of Corrections. Beginning in 2021, Pathway Home prepares people for employment before they are released from incarceration, after which they will be connected to career path jobs and the other support services that people need after release from incarceration during 2022 and 2023. For people in the project post-release, Remerg provides connections for the Pathway Home Project’s resource navigators, workforce partners, and the individuals leaving incarceration.
Some career path jobs such as the trades and other professions involve applying for a license from the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). For many of these professions, a criminal record can be a barrier to employment, but because the barrier may also be navigated, Remerg collaborates with DORA’s Division of Professions and Occupations on policymaking discussions and community meetings to decrease these barriers. We also provide information on navigating these barriers through our re-entry website Remerg.com. In October 2021, Remerg and DORA are collaborating on a webinar for the community, focusing on training employment navigators how to navigate the process of applying for a professional license on behalf of a client.
