Educated felon in N.C. in search of job

Felon needs help finding a job

Felon jobs
On June 3, 2010 accepted a plea bargain and I now have a c felony and an e felony on my record (c felony: attempting to manufacture schedule I / e felony manufacturing schedule VI ) I have been put on probation for eight years and I assume I am not eligible for expungement until after the probation. I am 56 years old, I have a PhD in psychology. Since almost all employers do criminal background checks, I also assume that my former career as a college professor is over. I am pursuing a Masters degree in addiction counseling but I can't live on just my student loans with court fines and probation fees added to my cost of living.

The one-stop center in Asheville, NC has not been helpful. they referred me to Goodwill who only help ex-convicts coming out of prison. The probation office is not very helpful - they consider it my responsibility to be gainfully employed - which is extremely hard to do under the circumstances. The federal bonding program sounds good, but the Fidelity Bond Certificate requires an employer - so you have to be employed or offered employment before the bond is issued! - I would appreciate any advice you can give me.

Hello M.T.,

Please don't give up on the One-stop. Just because they were not able to help you that one time, doesn't mean they won't be able to help you in the future. Don't forget they have access to the bank of available jobs in your state.  As far the Federal Bonding Program being useless, it is always a powerful selling point on interviews.  It may make an employer more at ease about hiring a felon if he knows you can be bonded.

I hope this helps.
