Felon with Degree is Job Hunting

To Whom It May Concern,

I have three drug felonies; 2 for marijuana and 1 for vicodin. I graduate in 2 months with bachelors in business management from The University of Texas. I start MBA program in September. Ive been filling out app's like crazy and sending out my resume all over the country, but I get no responses at all. The only interview Ive had was at TacoBell for a GM position, but they told me my background prohibited me from being employed at their company. TacoBell!! That scares me; the fact that TacoBell turned me down. I have spent a fortune on this education and I am worried that it was all for nothing. Any help or advice you could give would be helpful.

Thanks,

Jon

Hello Jon,

Don't blame your lack of responses on your criminal history. This is a tough time for anyone looking for a job let alone a felon.

Blindly sending out unsolicited resumes is a tough way to get noticed. Do a little homework and find specific people to send your application letters to.  Sending resumes with well written cover letters is a great way for ex-offenders and felons to possibly avoid the "Have you ever been convicted......" question, this method works a lot better when they are directed to a specific person.  You may have to do a bit of fact finding to locate the person in each company who is in charge of hiring.

There is a link below. It is a list of companies that have been known to hire people with criminal records:

Often ex-offender and felon job searches begin with some legal assistance. I suggest contacting the legal aid office in your area to see if expungement is an option in your state. If so, you may be able to get low-cost or no-cost help with the process.

Being a college graduate myself, I know the time, effort and other sacrifices you have made to get your degree. I also know that often it may be a while until you are able to get a position you feel is worthy of your education. Sometime when we want more, we have to pay some dues. Be prepared to humble yourself for future rewards.

Be patient and work hard.
