Man fulfills dream of becoming

FDNY probie after 18-year bid

Hello,

I came across your website and I need some guidance for my boyfriend. He has a felony he got when he was 17 for a drug charge. He completed his time and now hes 25 years and has been doing great. He's a car salesman but he works a lot and we have a little boy with whom he wants to spend more time with. He would love to be a firefighter. Or something of the sort... I know his felony stops him from doing a lot but he really has changed. We live in Texas? Do have any suggestions or know anyone we can speak to? We just need to figure out where to start.

Diana,


Felon wants job as firefighter

Hello Diana,

Your boyfriend has a job so he is ahead of the game.  The best time to find a job is when you already have one.

I do know of ex-offenders and felons who have gotten jobs as firefighters. The decision to hire individuals rest upon the respective municipalities. I suggest your boyfriend inquire with the jurisdiction he wishes to serve in as to his eligibility.

Felon wants job as firefighterhe should speak to the firefighters themselves to find out how they got to where they are.  As I also suggest to ex-offenders and felons who want to work for the public is to contact elected officials and ask for information. He should express his desire to be employed and once again become a productive member of society. Elected officials have staff members that answer letters and respond to inquiries from citizens. Officials that could offer assistance are: Mayors, Council Members, Commissioners, Aldermen, Board Members, Assemblymen, and Judges. He should not ask for a job. He should only ask for suggestions about how someone like him could be a firefighter.

I hope this helps.

Do felons list “Deferred Probation” on Job Applications?

Do felons list “Deferred Probation” on Job Applications?

I have a previous misdemeanor assault on a family member on my record. I currently on probation deferred for assault on a family member that is classifies as a felony. Do I list the felony on an application, even though I am on deferred probation? I read somewhere that the felony charge will not show up on a background check. How accurate is that? I reside in Houston, Texas. I do have an advantage, I served honorable in the military for six years. I am now in the Inactive Ready Reserve. My obligation will end in two years. I need advice on what to put on an application. How do I explain myself while in an interview?

Thank you,

Ramiro


 Do felons list “Deferred Probation” on Job Applications?




Hello Ramiro,

Your question not easily answered and I can see how that can affect a felon job search. Deferred adjudication, withheld adjudication, deferred probation all fall into the same basic category.  In most cases, adjudication is withheld pending some other action, usually successful completion of the terms. These terms are typically a fine and probation.  If you successfully complete the terms, in most cases the charges are dismissed. When you complete the terms you will be given a document declaring the charges dismissed.

Do felons list “Deferred Probation” on Job Applications?My suggestion to you is to contact the prosecutor or court officer that is assigned to to your case and inquire if the charge was indeed dismissed.  If it was dismissed, you can answer "no" to the conviction question. This is not intended as legal advice, just information.  For more detailed information as it relates to deferment in your state, you should get help from a qualified legal professional.  I suggest your local legal aid office.  You should be able to get low-cost, probably no-cost assistance.

I hope this helps.

Mom of a felon wants to help him get a job

Mom of a felon wants to help him get a job

Back to Jail: Addiction, mental illness,

joblessness pave path back to prison     

Hi my son was charged with 5 counts of grand theft.  He happened to have drug problems.  He went through a court options program and completed.  I am in process of getting charges expunged.   In the meantime can't get job.  All places check records. He is 22 and now is very sad we put him in rehab and is drug free for 7 months now don't want this to head him back to drugs! Any suggestions?





Mom of a felon wants to help him get a job


Your son should be proud that he has the kind of family who is strong enough to exhibit the type of tough love that he needs. Many of the felons and ex-offenders I deal with do not have that type of support.

In relation to his convictions, five counts of grand theft is not the worst case I've had to deal with. He probably will not have a chance at jobs that any kind of valuables will be at risk. I suggest he try getting a job through a temporary agency. Temporary agencies are a great way to quickly get back into the working world. Many employers use agencies to try out new employees before hiring them. Good workers are hard to find. If an employer sees that he is hard working, punctual and fit in well, he may offer the job permanently. Some other advantages to using a temporary employment service:

He can try different types of work and develop new skills which can be used later.

He can make new contacts.

Build a work history.

Earn a wage until you can find permanent employment.

He probably will have better success looking for small independent agencies that have fewer hiring restrictions than larger national companies and are free to hire anyone they choose. He will be able to get a list of these agencies in your local phone directory.

He can also go to your local One-Stop Career Center.   Each state has a network of centers that offer a variety of free services that can get him ready for work and assist him in finding employment. In addition, these centers offer training programs that may prepare him for a career.

Some services available are:

Career planning and counseling (often counselors have experience in assisting ex-offenders and felons)

Resume Writing, Interviewing Skills

Computers with internet access and word processing

Daily access to thousands of job listings Job postings and referrals Printers, fax machines, phones, and copiers for job search use

You can your nearest One-Stop Career Center on the web at www.servicelocator.org I hope this helps.

Felons Cook Up Legit Business

With ‘Cornbread Hustle’


I get many questions from ex-offenders and felons concerning getting jobs.  Sometimes getting jobs is not the best choice for ex-offenders and felons. Starting a business has advantages that traditional jobs do not.  You may have skills that could turn into a successful career or be the start of a great new business. Ex-offenders and felons must weigh the options to determine what is best for them.

There are pros and cons to both choices.

 

  


For Ex-offenders and Felons: Start a Business or Get a Job?



Having a Job 

Benefits - Many full-time and some part-time jobs offer company-sponsored benefits. Frequently, the combined value of these benefits is worth a third or more of the dollar figure salary. Some of these benefits include 401(k) retirement plans,  Health/Dental Care and and paid sick and vacation days.  These are very valuable reasons to have a job.

Skill Building - Most jobs are valuable opportunities to learn skills that can be used to advance at the place you are working or take advantage of opportunities later.

It Creates a Routine - Regular jobs create routines that could be valuable to ex-offenders and felons.  A regular routine makes it easier to plan one's personal life and leaves less time for the types of things that led to trouble in the past.

Steady Income - I job provides a steady income you can count on.  Over time there may be raises and opportunity for growth.

Starting a Business

Be Your Own Boss - With your own business, you are the boss.  Some people really dislike following the orders of other people. 

Unlimited Income - With a job, you are limited to your hourly wage.  Having your own business, your income is determined by your success.  Your future is in your own hands

Make Your Own Hours - Your own business would allow you to set your own hours and work whenever you wish.  You decide how much work you do, when you go to work, when you quit for the day, when you take a vacation, and how long the lunch break will be.

Personal Satisfaction - A sense of accomplishment that comes with starting and building a business from the ground up is wonderful thing. Self-employed people take pride in the services and products they offer and being able to create the living they want.

For a better understanding of what it would take and the pros and cons of business ownership, ex-offenders and felons should speak to people who have done it.  There are benefits to both working at a job and owning a business.  Find out what is best for you.
