Ex-offenders and felons can consider tech careers

Ex-offenders to build tiny homes with Big Idea Grant funds
We appreciate what you do for us, thanks a lot. I'm a violent ex-offender in vocational school in Florida for HVAC. I have an armed bank robbery charge, 1st time offender. I also am bilingual in Spanish. I want to eventually start my own business but my charge makes it difficult for me to do residential air conditioning. I'm aware I could do commercial but it seems to be a lot of obstacles for me to even get into the field with my charge and even more issues getting a contractors license later due to money and my charge. Therefore, I've been considering auto mechanic technician course, where it appears there will be less of a hassle to get work and start my own business in that.

So my question is, is it possible to get a really good opportunity as a auto mechanic tech with decent money and to start my own business in that despite my background or will I have better chances sticking to HVAC. Brother, I'm at the crossroads on this. I don't have a problem educating myself for a better life. It's just, being correct in the education for the situation that is. I could seriously take some sound advice and suggestions from you. I really appreciate this outlet you have provided for me and others.

Thanks man!

A: Hello,

First of all, are you certain you cannot get a contractor's license? I meet too many ex-offenders and felons that assume that they are not eligible for certain types of employment because of their backgrounds.   To be sure you can, contact the licensing board to inquire if your conviction prohibits you from being licensed. You can contact them here:

Division of Professions
Construction Industry Licensing Board
1940 North Monroe Street
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0783

With the large Hispanic population in Florida, there is opportunity for you to build a good HVAC business. Even if you choose an automotive career, you can either get a job working for larger automotive maintenance shops (Sears, Pep Boys, Strauss,) dealerships, independent garages or you could even start small and build a list of customers.

If you choose a job, be sure to let the employer know that you can be bonded.  Ex-offenders and felons can be bonded by the Federal Bonding Program.  Take a look at the videos below for more information.

Technical careers are a great alternative to jobs for felons and ex-offenders.

I hope this helps.

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.
