Job Opportunities for Felons

Giving Building Materials and Ex-Inmates

a Second Chance in Baltimore

Greetings,

I was able to read your website, and I am interested in your philosophy. I am a 28 year old felon in Alabama. My crime was credit card fraud and ID theft. Since it was my first conviction, I was granted 1 year parole with court costs. Even though the punishment is light, I am unable to find a job to help pay off the dues and support my family.

I have learned of the Federal Bonding Program, but it doesn't seem to be getting me anywhere. I have been on many interviews where I have put the crimes on the application, but they insist on running a background check, which of course comes up with the convictions. Then they say that I cannot be hired, even though it was on the application before you ran the social security number through. 

I keep trying somehow, someway everyday; and, I am not picky about jobs. I apply for general labor positions as well as a way to get on my feet. I apply with resumes and cover letters. Is there something else I am missing? Any advice would be welcome.

Sincerely,

Jay

Job Opportunities for Felons


Hello Jay,

I'm sorry you are having so much trouble. Finding a job unfortunately is not an exact science. Finding a job with a criminal record is even tougher.

I suggest to all ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs to tell everyone they know that are looking for employment. Many people got their job leads from people they know. This is called networking. Networking is the most effective method of finding employment leads. Most jobs are never advertised because they are usually filled by personal contacts. In fact, employers would rather hire someone referred to them by people they know rather than to painfully sort through resumes and applications. How many people do you know? Each one of them could potentially help a felon get a job.

• Friends
• Relatives
• Neighbors
• Parole/probation officers
• Members of your religious group (especially ministers, priests, imams, etc.)
• Former teachers
• Former co- workers
• Former employers
• Classmates
• Casual acquaintances
• People you do business with (Hairstylists, barbers, doctors)

Look at the list above. In each group, list five people that you can contact. That is at least 55
people that could help you in your job search. Let each person know that you are looking for a job
and that any information they have for you would be helpful. Have copies of your resume handy
for your contacts to give to other people.

Another suggestion is to locate your local Goodwill. Goodwill hires ex-offenders and ex felons everyday giving them an opportunity to re-enter society.

I suggest to all felons looking for jobs to visit their local One-stop Career Center.  At the center you will find services than can help you find a job including resume preparation, interviewing skills and lists of available jobs in your area.  The center has counselors that provide one-on-one  assistance to get you on your way.  The counselors can also put you in contact with resources that could help you with your growing family.

You can find the center nearest to you at the link below

Mom wants to help felon get a job

Mom wants to help felon get a job

Mom wants to help felon get a job
Locked Up, Then Locked Out
My son is 20 and he made a bad choice by hanging out with the wrong crowd and was arrested for possession of a stolen firearm, did a couple of days in jail for ignoring house arrest one day for not coming home on time. My husband has been offered a transfer to Europe and my son's probation is for 5 years.

Is my son allowed to leave the state to go with us to Europe and seek employment there, should this be brought up to his P.O.

Also, will he be able to find a job in Minnesota in the meantime until our move which is at the end of this year? Any suggestions on job searching would be greatly appreciated.

Hoping you can help me, he's our son and I love him so much and want only the best for him.

Thanks for listening

Desperate Loving Mom

Hello Mom,

Felons with probation usually have to finish the terms of probation before they can leave the state. I am guessing that he will be in violation of his probation if he leaves before it is finished. To be sure, contact his probation officer.

Possession of a stolen firearm is not the worst charge in the world. Hopefully, it will not hinder him too much.

He can get help on his job search at the nearest One-stop Career center. You can the center nearest you at this link:

There are many resources at the One-stop Center.  The video below will give you some idea about what the center has to offer and how he can be helped in his job search.

Will my juvenile record work against me?

Will my juvenile record work against me?


Lost girls: Young women face harsher punishment

in Maryland’s juvenile justice system 

I got into trouble when I was a teenager. I am now in college and trying to decide on a career. I am interested in becoming an Elementary Education Teacher. Even though I have a juvenile record, will it stop me from having a career in the field I choose?

Thank you.

Chris





Will my juvenile record work against me?


Hello Chris,

That is a very good question. Contrary to what many people believe, your juvenile record does not disappear when you become an adult. My advice to you is apply to have your record sealed by the court. Often felon job searches begin with a little legal assistance.

Will my juvenile record work against me?Once a case is “sealed” and can only be examined by order of the court. To seal a criminal record means that a court clerk is ordered by a judge to hide a court record of criminal proceedings from public view. Originally records were actually placed in an envelope which was secured with a wax seal. The records are not destroyed because under certain circumstances, a court can order that sealed records be reopened. Generally, however, the effect of sealing is the court acts as if the information in the record never existed. Even a juvenile record can be sealed through the juvenile court. Once this has been done, the offense shall be deemed never to have occurred. There are no exceptions to this type of sealing; offenses are treated as though they never happened. A court not only seals its records, but also orders that records containing information about the charges held by others be sealed as well. Once a criminal record is sealed, all of the proceedings in it are treated as if they never occurred. Persons may then properly and lawfully answer any questions about the arrest, acquittal, conviction etc., as if they never happened. For example, it is OK in a job interview or even under oath to deny a sealed conviction. Once a record has been sealed it is not gone. I will be visible to law enforcement, government agencies and the court system.

Check with your local legal aid office for getting help getting this done.

Will my juvenile record work against me?


Good luck.

Will "Second Chance" help felons get jobs?

Will "Second Chance" help felons get jobs?


CBIA Session Promotes Hiring Ex-Offenders  

My friend has been out of prison for over 15 years and is losing hope of finding substantial work help maintain his home. Does this Act really work or is this another G. W. Bush "Smoke Screen".









 Will "Second Chance" help felons get jobs?



I always tell ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs to depend on their will to work hard. It would be foolish to wait for any program or legislation to solve a problem for you. With or without social programs, felons can only hope to get jobs by making themselves employable enough to compete for jobs on the open market.  This will take a definite plan of action that includes a well written resume, job search and interview skills to start.  It will take hours of hard work.

He can get a head start on his job search by making a visit to the local One-stop Career Center.  This should be the first stop for anyone looking for jobs especially those with criminal records.  He will find a number of valuable services that could get him ready to compete for jobs.  He may also find opportunities for training that could mean a new career.  You can find the closest One-stop Career Center as well as all of the available services here:
