Lady Felon Seeks Job Search Help

   Lady Felon Seeks Job Search Help

Lady Felon Seeks Job Search Help
 Hello Mr. Mayo,

I committed a crime over 10 years ago, I pleaded guilty and go two years probation.  My church gave me a job after my conviction. I didn’t have to worry about seeking employment elsewhere.  I no longer work at the church for personal reasons.  I am currently looking for a job and it’s hard for me.   I was wondering if you could give me some advice on where to start or if there are programs out there for women.  I live in Virginia Beach

Lady Felon Seeks Job Search HelpUnfortunately, I don't know of any programs in the Virginia Beach area for women.  The first place I suggest for every ex-offender and felon looking for jobs is the nearest One-stop Career Center.  Your local One-stop can help you with some valuable services that help you get a job.  You can get help with your interviewing skills, a resume and there are computers and copiers you can use.  There are also state issued lists of open jobs in your area.  Each center has a staff of counselors that can help you in your job search.  Many counselor's regularly work with felons and ex-offenders and know of employers in the area that will give them a chance.  You can find the Center in your area here:

Another suggestion is to find your local United Way office.  The United Way supports a large number of social service agencies that may be able to help you.  They can direct you to resources that may help a female felon or felons in general.  There may be other services that can help you get back on track.  The United Way in your area can be found here:

Lady wants to help felon friend get a job

Hello my name is Shantell and I'd REALLY appreciate any help at all that you can possibly provide me. My man is a felon he is currently in work release in Steelton, Pa. The rules there are extremely strict. It's hard for him to go out and look for a job. He is a good man even though he is a felon. His crimes are not violent they're mostly drug related. I have been trying so hard searching the net for jobs for him and I keep coming up with dead ends. So I was wondering if you could possibly help me in any way possible. Maybe you know some companies in Steelton, Pa. or Harrisburg, Pa. He is a very hard and devoted working man he has just made some mistakes but who hasn't you know. If you any info at all that could be helpful or any tips it is highly appreciated and respected! Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon.

Trying to get a job with a misdemeanor

Trying to get a job with a misdemeanor



Trying to get a job with a misdemeanor
I have a misdemeanor on my record which is forgery and its hard finding a job. Do you have any tips on how to get a job with that on my record?

Jam,








Trying to get a job with a misdemeanor




Hello Jam,

Your particular charge is what is classified as an "integrity" crime. This means you will have a very difficult time getting a job anywhere money or valuables are at risk. You will definitely need to change your line of work.  My suggestion to you is to contact your local One-stop career center. They have a lot of services that can help unemployed people in different situations get jobs. Many of the counselors at these centers have experience assisting people with criminal backgrounds. You may also find success applying to smaller companies that tend to do less exhaustive background checks than larger companies. Ex-offenders and felons often have more success finding jobs when the know where to look.

Felon with sex offense wants to join the military

Felon with sex offense wants to join the military


Felon with sex offense wants to join the military
Found your website while searching "felon" info and thought I would take a chance.

When my son was 19, he had come home from college for the summer, earned his black belt in Tae kwon Do, and made the mistake of having a relationship with a 15 year old girl in his karate class. She was working on her black belt and had an immense crush on my son...and vice versa. They had known each other for several years--and were both very talented "karate kids."
Anyway, they broke it off when he went back to school--but remained friends.

The young lady went to counseling a year later for some unrelated family issues and revealed that she had a boyfriend a year ago and they had sex. Bingo...the therapist calls the state, the state arrests my son, who is now 20 almost 21, and presses charges...4 counts of sex with a minor. Neither girl nor her family pressed charges against my son. In addition, we were told that because he had recently earned his black belt degree that he was considered "someone of higher responsibility" and that is why the state decided to prosecute. I might add that he was in the process of applying for the Indiana State Trooper program--was almost there! BIG NIGHTMARE for our family since this son was the one who never drank, partied, smoked...just a good, sweet, loving kid and born again Christain... who did something really dumb based on emotion.

The deal was this, 6 months house arrest and 3 years probation which we have almost completed...without grumbling I might add. Felony reduced to misdemeanor as soon as probation ends actually on 9/16/10. He has been planning to join the military... to do good in the world and serve the country he loves. What are his chances? He talked to an recruiter (about 6 months ago) about Indiana air guard and was told not just no-- but never.

I appreciate your time.

 I know quite a few young men in your son's same situation. The good news is that his charge will be downgraded to a misdemeanor.  From time to time the military grants waivers to recruits who have criminal records.  Most are moral waivers, which include some felonies and misdemeanors.

The only military branch offering waivers to ex-offenders is the Army. He may find more success there.  The Army recruiter will tell him exactly what to do to get the process started.  It is totally up to the Army to grant the waiver.

I hope this helps.

Felon seeks jobs in Nursing

Felon seeks jobs in Nursing


felon

To Whom It May Concern,

I am a convicted felon. On March 13th, 2003 I was convicted of felony theft scheme in the state of Maryland. I was 20 years old at the time. I am not 27 soon to be 28 years old. I just finished my associate's degree in nursing. I applied to the Maryland Board of Nursing to sit for the NCLEX RN examination. Within the application I was honest about my conviction and included a cover letter explaining the nature of the incidence. I explained in the letter that since the conviction I have been an honest and trustworthy person and have worked hard at my job and had managed to start and finish a college degree in a very tough and competitive nursing program. I was given my authorization to test, I sat for the NCLEX RN exam and passed. I have yet to be granted a license number.

People in my class that have taken the NCLEX RN exam after me, have already received their license numbers. Would they have allowed me to sit for the exam even if I then were not going to be eligible for licensing? I'm worried that I have gotten this far through this and will then not be granted a license. Do I have any rights here? Why would they take my money and authorize me to test then to tell me "NO" you can't be an RN.
Also, if they do decide to finally give me a license number... Do you have any suggestions on how to go about getting a job? 


John

Hello John,

I'm not sure what the licensing procedure is in Maryland, but if you have not heard from them yet, I would place a call to the Maryland Board of Nursing.



There is contact information here:
