Hidden Talent in NEO, Expungement and Online Reputations
You thought you were done with reading and math tests when you left school? Not so fast. Applicants in a regional pilot project called TalentNEO are asked to take tests to assess potential jobs skills. Employers hope it's a way to find, say, a welder who may lack experience, but has aptitude. Then, a felony conviction can hound you for life: how expungment could offer new hope for ex-offenders. Finally, can a record ever be completely sealed in the age of the internet? Listen, on The Sound of Ideas.
Expungements: How Do They Work? The information session, a presentation of By The People, will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. May 4 at the Euclid Public Library, 631 East 222nd Street. It is free and open to the public.
