College Educated Felon Looking for Jobs

 College Educated Felon Looking for Jobs 

 


College Educated Felon Looking for Jobs
I have been free since Nov 2013, and I have been unable to find a job.  I have two college degrees, and I am treating looking for a job, as work.   Do you have any suggestions for me?

Thank you,

Leslie

Hello Leslie,

Unfortunately there are a lot of people out of work including college graduates. This is indeed a tough time to find a job but there are jobs available.  I'm sure you have tried all of the online job search websites such as Indeed.com. Monster.com etc., but don't overlook other options of finding job leads.  When you do find open positions, I suggest to my students to apply using a resume with a well written cover letter tailored to each specific job opening.   Often when felons apply this way, the question of records don't come up.  You should apply for every job you feel you are qualified for.  Forget that you have a criminal record.  Just apply.  If the question of your record ever comes up, start your answer with, "I'm glad you are asking me about this because I want you to feel comfortable about hiring me..........."

I suggest to everyone looking for jobs use the services of your local One-stop Career Center.  In addition to a long list of job preparation services, your local center has lists of open positions in your area.  Be sure to speak to an employment counselor so that you can set up an online account.  In many cases an online account will send you you email alerts when jobs in your chosen field become available.

You may even consider temporary employment.  Employment agencies are often looking for skilled office employees for temporary assignments.  Often temporary assignments lead to more permanent positions.  The key to applying for temporary work is to apply to smaller, local agencies rather than large corporate agencies.  Large nation-wide companies often have corporate policies that may prohibit hiring those with criminal records.  Smaller, individually owned agencies are free to hire anyone they wish.  make a list of all the agencies in your area and apply just as you would any other job.

This is a tough time to find jobs but hard work and determination will help you find more opportunities that will lead to more chances to get hired.
