The job market in Michigan is tough, with thousands of people looking for work.
Landing that job can be even more challenging if you have a criminal record, but a new program is offering help.
Thursday, hundreds of people attended a workshop in Flint, looking for a second chance.
Its called Community Ventures, a state-run program to help individuals convicted of a felony find full-time employment.
The program offers training, a job coach to help with the transition back into the workforce, and even transportation and childcare.
Companies who hire those in the program will receive a $5,000 wage reimbursement.
The program is still looking for companies that want to help.
