Felon with DUI needs help finding jobs

Felon with DUI need help finding jobs



 Felon with DUI needs help finding jobs
Hello,

In 2007 I was charged with two separate DUI offenses. The first one that I had ever received was in March and I got a second one in October. I received these charges during my own personal time off from work. At the time I was a driver for a beer distributor, ironically. I didn't report back to work because I was certain that I would be fired, after all I was unable to perform the job for which I was initially hired. Since then, I have had much difficulty finding a job, and it is extremely depressing. I have a family to support, and I am desperately seeking any help that I can get.

Hello,

I'm guessing that your license has been taken away. Your career may be over and it may not be. I'm going to suggest two things. First, I suggest that look into a Certificate of Rehabilitation.  A Certificate of Rehabilitation is a court order, which declares that a person who has been convicted of a felony is rehabilitated. If a petition for a Certificate of Rehabilitation is granted, it is forwarded to the Governor by the granting court and constitutes an application for a pardon.

Then you want to look into a Certificate of Good Conduct. The purpose of is is to provide evidence that you have been rehabilitated for employment and other purposes. It shows you are a law-abiding citizen and fully rehabilitated. It has no other legal effect.


These certificates are not available in all states.  It would be a good idea to contact your local legal aid office where you may get assistance at a low cost or even no cost.


As always, I suggest ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs to contact their local One-stop Career center with help with their job search efforts. You can find the nearest center to you here:

I hope this helps.

Felon in TX with DWI needs a Job

Felon in TX with DWI needs a Job
Mr. Mayo,

My sister  is a convicted felon for the 2nd time for DWI's.  She lives in Angleton, Tx.  She is a hard worker.  She has mainly done construction throughout her lifetime but she is getting too old to continue this type of work.  She has been to the WorkSource numerous times and she continues to look for employment; but she is getting really discouraged.  I have been online to find a list of company names that hire convicted felons and have now wrote them down.
Is their anything else you can think of that might help her seek gainful employment?

Thanks

I'm sorry your sister is having so much trouble.  The good news is that people with DWI get hired everyday.  It is my experience that people with DWI tend to have more success finding jobs in the retail or hospitality industries.  Employers in these fields want people who will be reliable and punctual.

Don't give up on the WorkSource in Texas.  New positions are added everyday.  A counselor can show you how to browse open positions from home if your are not already doing so.
You can sign up to browse open positions here:


The closest center to you is:

 491 This Way
Lake Jackson, TX  77566

One last suggestion, when you find an opening you like, the absolute worst thing you could  is to lie on a job application your charge.  I would just be completely honest and in the interview explain the situation to the employer.

I hope this helps.
