Jobs for Felons: Will my Criminal Record Hurt my chances to get Hired?

Jobs for Felons: Will my Criminal Record Hurt my chances to get Hired?

 


Let me first thank you for the information I received from the website (Jobs for Felons: Incredible List of Companies That Hire Ex-offenders and Felons). Just by reading the details has given me a little more hope I had before finding the page.

On yesterday, I was actually offered a job by Comcast contingent on my drug screen & of course my background check. I have had so much anxiety but my faith has not allowed me to fear so much in the last few days.

My question is, should I even continue with the application? I may have a criminal record but I am certainly not a criminal. So, IF my background will stop me from getting the job, what should I do? Should I try to speak with someone in HR to prove myself worthy?

Desperate for a job,

AJ

Hello AJ,

Thank you for your kind words.   You've gotten through the application process, you got an interview and did well on it.  You were offered the job, but it is contingent upon the drug screening and background check.  The only question I have, were you totally honest on the application if asked about having a criminal background?  If you were not honest on the application, the background check will reveal your dishonesty.  I
Jobs for Felons: Will my Criminal Record Hurt my chances to get Hired?have talked to felons where less than ones when completing the application and were hired, only to be fired later when the background check was done.  They were not fired for having criminal records, they were fired for falsifying the application.  I hope that is not your case.  I advise all of my students to be totally honest on all phases of the employment process.  I know that there is often a temptation to leave certain things off of applications, but honesty is always the best policy.

If after the background check comes back and they decide not to hire you, there is little more you can do.  It's their decision.  At that point, I would just pick myself up and keep applying for jobs.  Finding a job with a criminal record is a game of numbers.  The more jobs you apply for the greater your opportunity of finding an employer who will offer you an opportunity despite your record.

How to Get a Job After You Commit a Felony

Hello,

I would like to ask a question about trying to find a job for someone who is a Grand Larceny offender. I have found it to be very hard in these days and times trying to find a job when you have convicted of a charge such as Grand Larceny. No one want to hire you or even give you a chance. I was convicted 5 years ago. I was able to find a job after I was convicted. But due to the economy right now I was laid off over a year and a half ago where I was a manger at a Bookstore. Since that time I have been blessed to be on unemployment. The unemployment will soon run out and I don't know what I am going to do. It's not hard for me to get a job I just know when they say that they are going to do a background check they will always re-track their offer. So how do I find a job that will work with my charge. I have over 10 years to management and I can't even get a job sweeping the floor. I would take that job if offered, I would like to add. I would like your input if you have the time.

Thanks

Hello,

I encourage ex-offenders and felons to apply for jobs using resumes with well written cover letters. Often this will help them get around the application process.  Also, Getting a job with a criminal record is truly a numbers game.  You should apply for every job you feel you are qualified for.  Apply, apply, apply until you find an employer who will give you a shot.

I also suggest contacting your local United Way office. The United Way supports various social service organizations some of which provide services for ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs.

I hope this helps.

Felons want to Join The Military

Felons want to Join The Military

Felons want to Join The Military
Can I Join the Army With a Felony on My Record?
Hi,

I found your info on line and was hoping you could help me find help for my son. He was convicted of a felony that will be reduced to a misdemeanor charge upon completion of his probation, however, for the next year it reflects a felony. He wants very much to join the military but has been told by the local recruiters that the government has cracked down and will not allow felons to join. We even have the county prosecutor willing to modify his current charge if the military will state his acceptance.

Do you have any contacts or advice that could help my son? He's a good kid that made a mistake writing a check that belonged to his grandfather and was convicted of forgery.

Any guidance would be much appreciated!

Sincerely,

Kent

Hello Kent,

You're on the right track. Frequently ex-offender and felon job searches start with some legal assistance. Petitioning prosecutors to downgrade non-violent felonies to misdemeanors is a good choice. If more felons did this, it would make getting a job a lot easier.

Felons want to Join The Military
Next I would look to the Congressman from your district for assistance. They have staff who address constituent concerns. In a letter, he should express remorse for his poor decision and a desire to make his life better. He should also explain how joining the military would not only make him a better person but allow him to serve his country. His crime is non-violent so he has a better chance of being successful.

You can find your Congressman in the blue pages of your local telephone directory.

I hope this helps.

Felon wants corporate job

Felon wants corporate job

 

Want to keep ex-criminals on the straight and narrow?

Make it easier to get a job

I have a previous drug charge which I am sealing. Can I still get a good corporate job?

Back in 2006 I was charged with a possession charge which I am not to proud of. I later successfully completed all necessary requirements and now qualify for the option to seal my record. My question is can I still graduate from college and get a good corporate job? I am currently studying to become an administrator in business. Do you know of any personal stories or people with good jobs that have sealed records?



 Felon wants corporate job



Hello sir,

You are in a better position than most convicted felons looking for jobs. Once your case is sealed, it will only be visible to law enforcement agencies, the court system and government agencies.

I know of many felons who have put their criminal records behind them and gone on to successful corporate careers.  Many companies hire ex-offenders and felons. I tell all of my students not to exclude yourself from any jobs.  Apply for all jobs you feel you qualify for.

One suggestion I have for you is, whenever possible, apply for jobs using you resume and a well written cover letter.  Often when felons apply this way, the question of criminal records do not come up.  If it does come up, talk about the mistakes of your youth and how hard you have worked to overcome that mistake.
