How can being in prison be the best thing to happen to our jobseeker Ashley?

Mark Berlese, CEO Sarina Russo Job Access in the United Kingdom, was left inspired by a conversation he had with a jobseeker named Ashley.

Ashley said prison had been the best thing that ever happen to him.

When Mark asked him why and he shared:

• He is now hungry to work,

• He now wakes up at 8am rather than 1pm,

• He now wears a tie, and

• He now doesn’t take drugs anymore.

Ashley has made a choice to learn from his experience and to give life a go.

Mark challenged his team to take note of Ashley’s words and contemplate – ‘What are we learning from our life experiences?’
