One frequently asked question in the world of Second Chance employment is "do you assess a Second Chance Candidate differently than a candidate who is not?"

The response is that on the whole, Second Chance candidates should be interviewed and then evaluated in much the same way as any other candidate. As an employer, you will want to make sure that candidates from both groups will be responsible, accountable, and will fit in well with existing workplace culture. it's important to make sure that a Second Chance candidate is ready, that they've taken responsibility for their past mistakes, and that they have the resources and support they need to succeed in full time work. The interview is arguably the most important piece of the employment puzzle, because interviewing and hiring are critical for success on every level. Having a thoughtful approach that reflects time and effort paid to each step can make the process more productive for everyone.
