I don't know who to turn to anymore with my questions. I was convicted in embezzlement and fraud in 2008 in County of Sacramento, CA. I am currently on probation. I finish my FURLOUGH through the city of Sac, Sheriffs Dept in May 2008. I am still currently doing IHSS services for my parents because I couldn't find a job to do WORK furlough program, so my brother just got a job with the State of CA and told to take over them. Thanks to our Gov. Soon, the IHSS program have to go through fingerprint. So, I will loose it soon.
I know what I did wrong and my consequences. I didn't want my four kids to stay on the street so I did it. I am change now. I recently graduated in Medical Assistant and REALLY SEARCHING for a job so help me pay my bills and fines. I feel like giving up. Seems like I can't FIND a job anywhere. I think about everyday what it will be like if I didn't comment embezzlement and fraud. Please, give me advices to help me find a job in the Sacramento, CA region. I loosing hope. :(
Embezzlement is a serious conviction and it is going to take some out-of-the-box thinking. First of all I would suggest checking with medical the licensing board in your state to inquire if you are eligible to be licensed. Often ex-offenders and felons have difficulty obtaining certain types of jobs. You can get info here"
If you can, I would then suggest you do a bit of networking. Contact every elected official in your voting district and enlist their help in assisting you. They all have staffs that respond to inquiries made by citizens in their respective districts. Also contact the judge who sentenced you. In a letter I would express remorse regarding you past choices and what you have done to overcome your mistakes. Never ask for jobs, always ask for advice. This works especially well in election years. You would be surprised at the type of responses you will receive, and you will receive responses. Ex-offender and felon job searches will be difficult but hard work and determination will pay off
I hope this helps.
