Can ex-felons get local jobs

Hello Mr. Mayo,

I work with felons in a job center in Ohio and I see what they go through everyday trying to find jobs. I have been to your website and I find it appalling that you want to profit from felons by selling them a book that they need.  You say that you want to help felons but it looks like you are helping yourself.

You should be giving your book away.

Debbie

Hello Debbie,

I'm sorry you feel that I'm taking advantage of felons. You believe that I should be giving my book away.  You say that you help felons at a job center.  Do you do it for nothing?  You look for your check on Friday don't you?

Most of the people who purchase my book are not felons, but family or friends who want to help them.  Some them believe that the information in my book might benefit them more than buying them a pack of cigarettes or a drink.  I know that there are people that want to help a friend or a family member that may not have the $17.95 that we are asking for the softcover book, so we offer an ebook at a price that almost anyone can afford.  This ebook can be read on any device and is completely printable. You can check it out here: From Jail to a Job

If you were on my website. you were probably looking for information.  I also have two blogs that I have answered hundreds of questions from ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs.  You can find those blogs here:

Best of luck to you and your clients Debbie!

Taking a lawbreaking past out of college applications

Hello,

I am a 25 year old college student currently working on my M.S. in Information and Communication Science. When I was 20 I was convicted of "Accessory to a felony after the fact" in Texas (the crime actually happened just 6 months after turning 18). I have not been in trouble with the law since and finished my 5 year probation with no problems. I am smart, attractive, and one of the only women in my program at school. My advisors keep telling me how easy it will be for me to get a job in computer science as a woman due to the lack of diversity amongst gender in many corporations. I am very fearful that I will not be able to get any job after graduation due to my felony record. I have contacted two lawyers in Texas about expungement but they have told me to quit dreaming and that felony expungements are far and few between in the state of Texas (I live in Michigan now). Is this true? Is there no chance for me to get this off my record ever? I am afraid that I have put all of this money into my education and still will not be able to get a successful job because of a stupid decision I made 7 years ago. What are my options? What is some general advice on this issue? Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

KN

Hello,

Expungement may not be an option for many ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs, but don not give up.  Layers are going to hate my next suggestion because there are attorneys who make their livings by helping people with the expungement process.  My suggestion is to contact your local legal aid office.  There, you will get valuable advice and you can find out if it is a a viable option for you.  If it is an option, you may be able to get low cost or even free assistance and if it can help your career.

I know of ex-offenders and convicted felons with far worse charges than yours who have gone on to have great careers. Companies hire people with criminal records everyday.  A bit of advice is whenever possible, apply for jobs using your resume and well written cover letters. Often by using this method, the criminal record question may never come up. If the question arises, always be honest while letting the person know the event in your life was an isolated incident and you are fortunate to have put it behind you. Also talk about how hard you have worked to overcome your past.

I'm sure you will make out just fine.

Felon wants a career in health care

Felon wants a career in health care



New law makes it easier for felons to get

Illinois health care licenses


I just stumbled upon your blog and I think its a really great thing you have here. I have some convictions from back when I was a teenager. Three drug charges, which were all at the same time, one of which is a felony. And also I simple larceny charge. I got caught steeling glow sticks at the grocery store when I was 18. All my mistakes I made when I was a teenager haunt my everyday now that I'm an adult. Recently I moved to Florida from Michigan. And I'm finding it very hard to find a job here. I was interested in possibly working in the medical field, however, every time I go to apply for one they seem very strict about having a criminal background. 
Felon want a career in health care
I know that anything is possible when I comes to being motivated. Do you think I'm wasting my time with the medical field? Sometimes I feel like I'm getting nowhere. I spent over 300 dollars on a Certified Nursing Assistant prep class and now I'm about to take my CNA test, that is if the state allows me to after they check me out. I'm preparing myself for a big let down even though I feel I've learned a lot and gained much out the experience. If they don't allow me to take the test should I take a different direction other than the medical field? After I quit drugs and everything 6 years ago I went back to school got my diploma and then continued on to college. I felt like I could do anything that I set my mind to. My dream is to be an art teacher. However, I keep getting people telling me I cant do things because of my past. I have even had people tell me not to go to college because I'm wasting my time. What do you think about that? Am I going to be making minimum wage for the rest of my life even if I'm lucky enough to get hired at that?!

Thank you so much for your support and effort into doing this sort of blog and research. It helps to know that I'm not alone and there are other professional people in my same situation.

Jeffrey

Felon wants a career in health care


Hello Jeffrey,

I have worked with ex-offenders and felons who have jobs in the health care field here in the state of New Jersey. I suggest you contact can contact the medical licensing board in Florida. They will be able to advise you of licensing restrictions relating to your conviction. For more information, obtain the Florida Nurse Practice Act and Rules of the Board of Nursing, you can contact them at this number: 850-488-0595

Also don't give your dream of being an art teacher. Too many ex-offenders and felons believe having a criminal record eliminates them from good jobsConsidering your background, you may not be eligible to teach in public schools but there are other options. Community colleges adult learning annexes, private and charter schools are great places to start. They usually have fewer regulatory restrictions than public school systems.

I hope this helps.
