Will moving to another state help a felon get a job?
Hello Mr. Mayo,

Thank you for this blog.  I live in San Francisco, California.  I have multiple convictions for a few things.  I was talking to someone here and they told me that because I have a record in California, I should move to another state.  My record will not show up in another state.  I have relatives in Illinois.  Will moving to Illinois help me get a job?

Hello Karl,

I am glad you are seeking another opinion and not relying on information from that person.  Totally false!  Your record will follow you wherever you go.  In this age of computers and extensive data banks,  you can find out just about anything on anyone.  There are companies that exist just to sell information to anyone who will pay for it.

Will moving to another state help a felon get a job? A history of criminal record would include an individual's personal identifiers (descriptive information and fingerprints), arrests and subsequent dispositions (final outcome of a charge.)  Dispositions are posted to the
National Criminal History Record File by the FBI's Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division. Not only convictions but each criminal arrest for which the CJIS Division has a fingerprint submission would be on file.  So you see, your record is fairly easy to get.

There are organizations in your area that can help an ex-offender or felon looking for jobs.
