I am Shaun. I was convicted of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury about 6-7yrs ago. I am a barber now, however i have an injury now that has put me out of work. I desire a new career but have much concern as to what i should go into because of my past. Do you have any advice for me or maybe people that would like to help me.
I suggest you contact your local One-Stop Career Center. There you will find a list of services that can help ex-offenders and felons find new careers including training and job search services. Most Career centers have counselors who have experience assisting ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs. There are also contacts with other agencies that offer vocational rehabilitation and employment opportunities for those with disabilities.
