Felons Cook Up Legit Business

With ‘Cornbread Hustle’


I get many questions from ex-offenders and felons concerning getting jobs.  Sometimes getting jobs is not the best choice for ex-offenders and felons. Starting a business has advantages that traditional jobs do not.  You may have skills that could turn into a successful career or be the start of a great new business. Ex-offenders and felons must weigh the options to determine what is best for them.

There are pros and cons to both choices.

 

  


For Ex-offenders and Felons: Start a Business or Get a Job?



Having a Job 

Benefits - Many full-time and some part-time jobs offer company-sponsored benefits. Frequently, the combined value of these benefits is worth a third or more of the dollar figure salary. Some of these benefits include 401(k) retirement plans,  Health/Dental Care and and paid sick and vacation days.  These are very valuable reasons to have a job.

Skill Building - Most jobs are valuable opportunities to learn skills that can be used to advance at the place you are working or take advantage of opportunities later.

It Creates a Routine - Regular jobs create routines that could be valuable to ex-offenders and felons.  A regular routine makes it easier to plan one's personal life and leaves less time for the types of things that led to trouble in the past.

Steady Income - I job provides a steady income you can count on.  Over time there may be raises and opportunity for growth.

Starting a Business

Be Your Own Boss - With your own business, you are the boss.  Some people really dislike following the orders of other people. 

Unlimited Income - With a job, you are limited to your hourly wage.  Having your own business, your income is determined by your success.  Your future is in your own hands

Make Your Own Hours - Your own business would allow you to set your own hours and work whenever you wish.  You decide how much work you do, when you go to work, when you quit for the day, when you take a vacation, and how long the lunch break will be.

Personal Satisfaction - A sense of accomplishment that comes with starting and building a business from the ground up is wonderful thing. Self-employed people take pride in the services and products they offer and being able to create the living they want.

For a better understanding of what it would take and the pros and cons of business ownership, ex-offenders and felons should speak to people who have done it.  There are benefits to both working at a job and owning a business.  Find out what is best for you.

Felons should apply for all jobs they qualify for

Expungement gives felons a second chance

HELP! I am a 25 year old who is a recovering addict from an auto accident which almost killed me. I am highly educated in Finance/Accounting. I worked on Wall Street and was well paid as an intern. I am now on a three year probation. I was hired at a very good company in NYC before the court recently convicted me. A background check was done at that time and all was clear since I had no convictions. I turned down the job at the time - approximately a year ago. If I were to return to that company who wanted to hire me and make my contacts, would the company once again do another criminal background check? Are there any high paying jobs online I can do from home since I am educated with degrees and talented in my field? Is my life over?

I cannot attend Law School unless these felonies are expunged which is unrealistic. I don't know where to turn, I feel hopeless, I never leave my home.

I would appreciate any help or information you can give me. Thank you, God Bless.

Heartbroken



Felons should apply for all jobs they qualify for



Hello Heartbroken,

Felons should apply for all jobs they qualify for
I suggest contacting the person you were in contact with before. As I suggest to all ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs is to apply for every job you feel you are qualified for. The worst that could happen is you could be turned down. The way I see it, you will not get a job you don't apply for.

Regarding
expungement, many ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs require legal assistance. I suggest contacting your local legal aid office. There you could get low-cost or even no cost advice to help you find out what your options are in your state.  Just as an FYI, even with an expungement, your conviction will always be visible to the court system, law enforcement and government agencies.

I hope this helps.

Felon with DUI needs advice about jobs

Felon with DUI needs advice about jobs

 DUI and your Job
Hello,

I was convicted of felony DUI in 2008. It cost me an excellent job at Pacific Life. I went to alcohol treatment on my own accord, 6 months prior to sentencing. December of 2008 I landed a systems tech job at First Data Corporation. I worked there for over 11 months before being downsized November 2009. FDC was aware of my record, and the downsizing had nothing to do with it, it was just a numbers game. I have been unemployed since.

I understand the market is tough, and friends and relatives who work for large companies say that employers can be extremely picky in the hiring process now. I'm running out of hope that anyone will hire me. I haven't been able to land a job at a grocery store, fast food, anything. I do a lot of online applications, and wonder if the disclosure regarding felonies automatically flags the app and disqualifies me.

The felony DUI is the only thing I have on my record. I had a couple speeding tickets in high school and college. I've never stolen anything, or assaulted anyone, or committed fraud. I don't know what to do and the situation is getting very grim. My credit is shot because of the gaps in employment, and that has to hinder my job search as well. My resume is attached, just for the heck of it. It shows that I've always been employed, for long periods of time, with some good companies. I'm currently on unemployment, which I absolutely hate having to do, and that will run out by the end of July. I have barely been able to make it, and once that runs out, it's curtains. My father suffered a heart attack a month ago, and his medical bills are piling up. I need to be able to help my family but I cannot. I'll also be in danger of losing my house. If that happens then I am done for, as my credit is so bad I won't be able to get an apartment, let alone another house.

Is there anything I can do to get past this felony and land a solid job? I've had offers to work at bars/restaurants as either a cook or door man, but cannot accept those because my probation does not allow me to go to bars or be around alcohol. Even a job at a convenience store is not possible, because I would be handling alcohol. Lawn services won't hire me because they require a clean driving record. I have a lot to offer, and am the best teammate, worker, whatever, a business could ask for. In 9 months I've had one face to face interview and 3 phone interviews, nothing worked out. I'm on Career Builder, CareerLink, and Monster, all my information is out there and I apply for jobs daily. All I need is a chance. Any information, advice, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Fred


Felon with DUI needs advice about jobs



Hello Fred,

Felon with DUI needs advice about jobs
I have a few suggestions for you. First of all I suggest that you contact an attorney. Try legal aid. You should look into perhaps having your original conviction downgraded if possible. I'm not sure what state you live in but you can also 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. Often a little legal assistance makes it easier for convicted felons to get jobs. 

Felon with DUI needs advice about jobsSecondly, go to your nearest One-stop Career center. There you will find a variety of service that can help you get a job including referrals for open position in your area. One-stop career centers are under-utilized resources that can really help. You can the center nearest to you here:


http://www.servicelocator.org/

Thirdly, I suggest contacting your local United Way office. United Way supports a number of social service agencies that offer assistance to ex-offenders and felons some with DUI.  A person with your education and experience may even be of service to one of the many organization it serves.

I hope this helps.

Christie: Let's expunge ex-cons' criminal records

Hello,

I am on probation for misusing my expense account and accepted a plea bargain that gave me a Suspended Imposition of Sentence for : Felony Theft Class B. This SIS technically is not a conviction. However, it comes up in background checks and I can't pass the check. Consequently, I can't get a second chance.



Most of the programs that I find are not for people on probation. Do you have any suggestions? I have a degree and 7 years of high level medical sales experience ranging from medical devices to pharmaceuticals?

Thanks for your help.



 Expungement may help felons get jobs





Expungement may help felons get jobs
Your conviction is probably dependent on the completion of the terms of your deferment. Once the terms are completed, the original charges will be dropped. When this is done, you should try to get the charges expunged. I'm not sure how expungement works in your state. In most cases it means having the charges hidden from public view.  The charges will always be visible however to law enforcement, the court system and any government agency.  You should get legal help getting this done.

There are attorneys that make their livings getting expungements done for their clients.  You may be able to get help from your local legal aid office.    If expungement is an option for you, legal aid may offer low-cost or no-cost assistance with this process.  You can find your local legal aid office in your telephone directory or by contacting your state's bar association.

I hope this helps.

Can ex-felons get local jobs

Hello Mr. Mayo,

I work with felons in a job center in Ohio and I see what they go through everyday trying to find jobs. I have been to your website and I find it appalling that you want to profit from felons by selling them a book that they need.  You say that you want to help felons but it looks like you are helping yourself.

You should be giving your book away.

Debbie

Hello Debbie,

I'm sorry you feel that I'm taking advantage of felons. You believe that I should be giving my book away.  You say that you help felons at a job center.  Do you do it for nothing?  You look for your check on Friday don't you?

Most of the people who purchase my book are not felons, but family or friends who want to help them.  Some them believe that the information in my book might benefit them more than buying them a pack of cigarettes or a drink.  I know that there are people that want to help a friend or a family member that may not have the $17.95 that we are asking for the softcover book, so we offer an ebook at a price that almost anyone can afford.  This ebook can be read on any device and is completely printable. You can check it out here: From Jail to a Job

If you were on my website. you were probably looking for information.  I also have two blogs that I have answered hundreds of questions from ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs.  You can find those blogs here:

Taking a lawbreaking past out of college applications

Hello,

I am a 25 year old college student currently working on my M.S. in Information and Communication Science. When I was 20 I was convicted of "Accessory to a felony after the fact" in Texas (the crime actually happened just 6 months after turning 18). I have not been in trouble with the law since and finished my 5 year probation with no problems. I am smart, attractive, and one of the only women in my program at school. My advisors keep telling me how easy it will be for me to get a job in computer science as a woman due to the lack of diversity amongst gender in many corporations. I am very fearful that I will not be able to get any job after graduation due to my felony record. I have contacted two lawyers in Texas about expungement but they have told me to quit dreaming and that felony expungements are far and few between in the state of Texas (I live in Michigan now). Is this true? Is there no chance for me to get this off my record ever? I am afraid that I have put all of this money into my education and still will not be able to get a successful job because of a stupid decision I made 7 years ago. What are my options? What is some general advice on this issue? Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

KN


Will educated felons be able to get corporate jobs?



Hello,

Expungement may not be an option for many ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs, but don not give up.  Layers are going to hate my next suggestion because there are attorneys who make their livings by helping people with the expungement process.  My suggestion is to contact your local legal aid office.  There, you will get valuable advice and you can find out if it is a a viable option for you.  If it is an option, you may be able to get low cost or even free assistance and if it can help your career.

I know of ex-offenders and convicted felons with far worse charges than yours who have gone on to have great careers. Companies hire people with criminal records everyday.  A bit of advice is whenever possible, apply for jobs using your resume and well written cover letters. Often by using this method, the criminal record question may never come up. If the question arises, always be honest while letting the person know the event in your life was an isolated incident and you are fortunate to have put it behind you. Also talk about how hard you have worked to overcome your past.

I'm sure you will make out just fine.

Multiple felon needs job search help

Multiple felon needs job search help

Second chances benefit everyone

Hello,

I was reading your blog about jobs for ex felons and was curious if you could provide some information. A little information about my history, in April 1982 I was charged with a 1st degree felony charge of aggravated burglary and was told to plead guilty by a court appointed attorney even though I wanted to plead not guilty he said I would be punished for taking it to trial and the judge agreed to probation so I plead guilty and was sentenced to a term of 2 - 15 in Ohio State Reformatory. Well I spent 9 months there and my family got another attorney and he got it reduced to a felony 2 and I was released. I only spent a year on Parole and was released on good behavior so that is 1 felony against me.

I can get a job almost anywhere but I cannot keep it because of the 911 terrorist attacks. everyone now does background checks and asks if you have ever been convicted of a felony
which should not be allowed. Since then I was terminated from a job for no reason and have been charged with unauthorized use of property and it is pending felony 5 but the judge agreed to probation and this happened all because I helped the HR manager with her email and the company found out I did this after I was terminated so they called the FBI and that is how I was charged.

I have a bachelor of science in health administration and an extensive background in information technology but there is no way I will ever work legally again. Any advice or know any companies who hire felons? I am working with state senators to get the expungement laws changed in Ohio but this could take years and the money I have saved up I have been living on is all but gone so I need a job.


Thanks

Rick

 Multiple felon needs job search help



That's quite a story. My suggestion to you is to only apply for jobs with cover letters and resumes. Often when ex-offenders and felons apply this way, the question about criminal background never comes up. If it ever does, be honest. Don't focus on your past.  Shift the attention to the things you have done since your mistakes onto what you have done to improve yourself.  Check out the videos below.  It may give a few ideas that could lead to a felon getting a job.

Mom wants to help felon get a job

Mom wants to help felon get a job

Mom wants to help felon get a job
Locked Up, Then Locked Out
My son is 20 and he made a bad choice by hanging out with the wrong crowd and was arrested for possession of a stolen firearm, did a couple of days in jail for ignoring house arrest one day for not coming home on time. My husband has been offered a transfer to Europe and my son's probation is for 5 years.

Is my son allowed to leave the state to go with us to Europe and seek employment there, should this be brought up to his P.O.

Also, will he be able to find a job in Minnesota in the meantime until our move which is at the end of this year? Any suggestions on job searching would be greatly appreciated.

Hoping you can help me, he's our son and I love him so much and want only the best for him.

Thanks for listening

Desperate Loving Mom


 Mom wants to help felon get a job



Hello Mom,

Felons with probation usually have to finish the terms of probation before they can leave the state. I am guessing that he will be in violation of his probation if he leaves before it is finished. To be sure, contact his probation officer.

Possession of a stolen firearm is not the worst charge in the world. Hopefully, it will not hinder him too much.

He can get help on his job search at the nearest One-stop Career center. You can the center nearest you at this link:

There are many resources at the One-stop Center.  The video below will give you some idea about what the center has to offer and how he can be helped in his job search.

Will "Second Chance" help felons get jobs?

Will "Second Chance" help felons get jobs?


CBIA Session Promotes Hiring Ex-Offenders  

My friend has been out of prison for over 15 years and is losing hope of finding substantial work help maintain his home. Does this Act really work or is this another G. W. Bush "Smoke Screen".









 Will "Second Chance" help felons get jobs?



I always tell ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs to depend on their will to work hard. It would be foolish to wait for any program or legislation to solve a problem for you. With or without social programs, felons can only hope to get jobs by making themselves employable enough to compete for jobs on the open market.  This will take a definite plan of action that includes a well written resume, job search and interview skills to start.  It will take hours of hard work.

He can get a head start on his job search by making a visit to the local One-stop Career Center.  This should be the first stop for anyone looking for jobs especially those with criminal records.  He will find a number of valuable services that could get him ready to compete for jobs.  He may also find opportunities for training that could mean a new career.  You can find the closest One-stop Career Center as well as all of the available services here:

Felon wants Job as Chef

Felon wants Job as Chef

 

Felon wants Job as Chef

On the Rise Bakery gives felons, addicts second chance

I have a 22 year old daughter that is very intelligent, (which upsets me more about what she did) and a dedicated worker who knew she wanted to be a cook since 8th grade. Over the past year, she was dating a whack job that threatened her with a gun. One day while he was working, she went to his apartment and took his gun. Not a bad idea if she threw it in the river; however, stupidly she hocked it using her friends ID. the felony charge is not for taking the gun but using false id to hock it. She graduates the end of the month and cannot find work. 

This is kickoff time for AZ but the big hotels that doing the hiring are doing thorough background checks. She had a great job lined up with Wigwam. In fact, the HR director told her--this is a great company and a ache to work any where in the world. That Friday she was supposed to go to orientation. Unfortunately, the HR Dir. called her and said because of her felony change they cannot hire her. She did a stupid thing--no question there; I told the judge that regardless that we are from New Jersey the closest she had come to seeing a gun was by a policeman and not Tony Soprano. She is really in the dumps. She is seeing a psychiatrist and works with a psychologist.
Do you have any suggestions to help her get her career going?


Thank you for time,


 Felon wants Job as Chef



 

Felon wants Job as ChefAll is not lost. As I often suggest to ex-offenders and felons who seek jobs in the culinary arts, large corporate outlets may not be the best choice. They often have hiring practices that are determined at the corporate level. She may be better off looking for jobs at independent restaurants and catering companies. Check your local telephone directory and start calling.

Also she may seek assistance from independent temporary employment agencies. Often temporary assignments turn into full time jobs. There are temporary agencies that primarily work with the service industry. Smaller independent temporary staffing agencies are not bound by discriminatory hiring guidelines as larger nation-wide agencies and can hire anyone they choose.

Ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs may have to put in extra work to get hired.

I hope this helps.

Felons Should Try Smaller Companies to get Jobs

Felons Should Try Smaller Companies to get Jobs

 


Felons Should Try Smaller Companies to get Jobs

From ex-felons to furniture makers

Hello,

I have a criminal record and I can't find a job. I have been filling out applications everywhere. Do you have any advice for someone who has made some mistakes?

I hear this from felons all the time. Please don’t quit. You get nothing when you give up. You may just have to change your strategy. If I am an employer, I probably want to hire someone without a record before I hire someone without one. Most applications will ask about criminal convictions. If you are honest, as I recommend, an employer may not want to hire you.


Felons Should Try Smaller Companies to get JobsA good strategy for finding job openings is to apply to employers directly. Once you have decided on the type of work you would like to do, the next step is to choose employers that could use your services. Felons stand a better chance of being hired by smaller companies rather than larger ones. The owners or managers of smaller companies usually make the hiring decisions. Make a list of employers in your chosen field. Contact each one of them to see if there are positions available and how to apply. The telephone is the best method of contacting employers. You may even get job leads from people you know. Another advantage to applying to small companies is they are less likely to run background checks because they can be expensive.

If you get an interview, make a point to mention the Work Opportunity Tax Credit. To a small business, this may be an incentive to hire a person with a criminal record. The Work Opportunity Tax Credit is offered to employers as an incentive to hire any one of nine targeted groups with barriers to employment, felons included. An employer may receive a credit of as much as $2,400 for hiring a felon. You can find more information here:

Felon needs help finding a job

 Felon needs help finding a job


Ex-offenders less likely to quit their jobs, 

no more likely to be fired than other employees

Dear sir:

I don't know who to turn to anymore with my questions. I was convicted in embezzlement and fraud in 2008 in County of Sacramento, CA. I am currently on probation. I finish my FURLOUGH through the city of Sac, Sheriffs Dept in May 2008. I am still currently doing IHSS services for my parents because I couldn't find a job to do WORK furlough program, so my brother just got a job with the State of CA and told to take over them. Thanks to our Gov. Soon, the IHSS program have to go through fingerprint. So, I will loose it soon.

I know what I did wrong and my consequences. I didn't want my four kids to stay on the street so I did it. I am change now. I recently graduated in Medical Assistant and REALLY SEARCHING for a job so help me pay my bills and fines. I feel like giving up. Seems like I can't FIND a job anywhere. I think about everyday what it will be like if I didn't comment embezzlement and fraud. Please, give me advice to help me find a job in the Sacramento, CA region. I loosing hope. :(

Sincerely:

"Believer"

Dear Believer,

Embezzlement is a serious conviction and it is going to take some out-of-the-box thinking. First of all I would suggest checking with medical the licensing board in your state to inquire if you are eligible to be licensed. Often ex-offenders and felons have difficulty obtaining certain types of jobs. You can get info here:

http://www.mbc.ca.gov/

If you can, I would then suggest you do a bit of networking. Contact every elected official in your voting district and enlist their help in assisting you. They all have staffs that respond to inquiries made by citizens in their respective districts. Also contact the judge who sentenced you. In a letter I would express remorse regarding you past choices and what you have done to overcome your mistakes. Never ask for jobs, always ask for advice. This works especially well in election years.  You would be surprised at the type of responses you will receive, and you will receive responses. Ex-offender and felon job searches will be difficult but hard work and determination will pay off

I hope this helps.

Jobs for Felons: Will my Criminal Record Hurt my chances to get Hired?

Jobs for Felons: Will my Criminal Record Hurt my chances to get Hired?

 


Let me first thank you for the information I received from the website (Jobs for Felons: Incredible List of Companies That Hire Ex-offenders and Felons). Just by reading the details has given me a little more hope I had before finding the page.

On yesterday, I was actually offered a job by Comcast contingent on my drug screen & of course my background check. I have had so much anxiety but my faith has not allowed me to fear so much in the last few days.

My question is, should I even continue with the application? I may have a criminal record but I am certainly not a criminal. So, IF my background will stop me from getting the job, what should I do? Should I try to speak with someone in HR to prove myself worthy?

Desperate for a job,

AJ

Hello AJ,

Thank you for your kind words.   You've gotten through the application process, you got an interview and did well on it.  You were offered the job, but it is contingent upon the drug screening and background check.  The only question I have, were you totally honest on the application if asked about having a criminal background?  If you were not honest on the application, the background check will reveal your dishonesty.  I
Jobs for Felons: Will my Criminal Record Hurt my chances to get Hired?have talked to felons where less than ones when completing the application and were hired, only to be fired later when the background check was done.  They were not fired for having criminal records, they were fired for falsifying the application.  I hope that is not your case.  I advise all of my students to be totally honest on all phases of the employment process.  I know that there is often a temptation to leave certain things off of applications, but honesty is always the best policy.

If after the background check comes back and they decide not to hire you, there is little more you can do.  It's their decision.  At that point, I would just pick myself up and keep applying for jobs.  Finding a job with a criminal record is a game of numbers.  The more jobs you apply for the greater your opportunity of finding an employer who will offer you an opportunity despite your record.

How to Get a Job After You Commit a Felony

Hello,

I would like to ask a question about trying to find a job for someone who is a Grand Larceny offender. I have found it to be very hard in these days and times trying to find a job when you have convicted of a charge such as Grand Larceny. No one want to hire you or even give you a chance. I was convicted 5 years ago. I was able to find a job after I was convicted. But due to the economy right now I was laid off over a year and a half ago where I was a manger at a Bookstore. Since that time I have been blessed to be on unemployment. The unemployment will soon run out and I don't know what I am going to do. It's not hard for me to get a job I just know when they say that they are going to do a background check they will always re-track their offer. So how do I find a job that will work with my charge. I have over 10 years to management and I can't even get a job sweeping the floor. I would take that job if offered, I would like to add. I would like your input if you have the time.

Thanks

Hello,

I encourage ex-offenders and felons to apply for jobs using resumes with well written cover letters. Often this will help them get around the application process.  Also, Getting a job with a criminal record is truly a numbers game.  You should apply for every job you feel you are qualified for.  Apply, apply, apply until you find an employer who will give you a shot.

I also suggest contacting your local United Way office. The United Way supports various social service organizations some of which provide services for ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs.

I hope this helps.
