Tips for the Job Search Journey! Hey friends! 👋 We all face challenges in life, and sometimes that includes dealing with a criminal background. But remember, your past doesn't define your future! Here are some ways to stay positive and move forward:

1️⃣ Surround yourself with positive people: Surrounding yourself with supportive and positive influences can help you stay motivated and focused on your goals. Surround yourself with people who believe in you and support your efforts to make positive changes in your life.

2️⃣ Set goals and make a plan: Setting short-term and long-term goals can give you a sense of purpose and direction. Make a plan to achieve your goals, and take small steps towards them each day. Celebrate your progress along the way!

3️⃣ Stay focused on your strengths: Everyone has unique strengths and talents. Focus on what you're good at and what you enjoy, and use those skills to build a positive future for yourself. Don't let your past define you, but rather, focus on your abilities and potential.

4️⃣ Practice self-care: Taking care of yourself, both physically and mentally, is crucial for staying positive. Make sure to get enough sleep, eat healthy, exercise, and engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation. Taking care of yourself will help you feel more resilient and better equipped to face challenges.

5️⃣ Learn from your mistakes: We all make mistakes, and it's important to learn from them and use them as opportunities for growth. Reflect on what you could have done differently and use those lessons to make better choices in the future.

6️⃣ Seek support: Don't be afraid to reach out for support when you need it. Whether it's from friends, family, a therapist, or a mentor, having a support system can provide you with guidance, encouragement, and accountability.

Remember, it's never too late to make positive changes in your life. Stay focused on your goals, surround yourself with positive influences, and practice self-care. You've got this! 💪 #StayPositive #KeepMovingForward #YouAreMoreThanYourPast #motivation

Have a well prepared resume, so no explanation is needed.

Too bad most people can't just get a passport, fly off to another country and get a job there and "start over." Most other countries that would hire an English-speaking American are the ones that require extensive background-check type rubbish before they'd let you on the plane.

You can give all the motivational BS a rest as far as I'm concerned...if you can't pass the background checks none of that matters! It's beyond all the hype you're spewing. It's impossible to restart without having a lot of loot and the know how to start your own business. NOBODY is forgiving enough to give second chances to felons with Burglary and credit card theft/identity theft in their past. No matter how nice you make it sound period.

. One way you can combat getting yanked around by the nose supporting promoting corporate welfare is to protect your privacy; I still have contempt for the attempt from Corp. Intrusion into the personal lives of field hands! Do not disclose ethnicity, race, disability status, age, or anything you can opt out of, or don't answer private personal affairs. If you got something to offer as a Tradesman, they're not going to pass you by because you didn't answer a question about your secret fares in the same token. If they're not interested but for the quota, and you answered all the questions, that still will not get you the job! You provided the personal data already. They're just bringing me in to follow through and get credit for government quotas! They may need to satisfy an age diversity quota .I'm sure I'm running into this! It's probably a lot more complicated than this ! It's not the corporation's time, gas burning up for no charge. What do you get an opportunity to work there? They're so desperate for Tradesmen that I don't think it'll be long before sending a car to pick you up at the front door! Meanwhile, as you're doing the right thing, respectfully letting potential REAL opportunities KNOW I already received an "offer letter." Showing what was considered lead future inquiries for a resume and this corp. C*********s have you here for corporate welfare! I love for somebody to prove me wrong.

The only thing I'm qualifying for that doesn't check ANYTHING is being a human guinea-pig for the medical profession. Only "catch" to that is finding enough clinical trials for my diseases (hypertension, Stroke, depression, PTSD, obesity, and of course any "vaccine" trials that don't care about the rest of these "usually disqualifying factors") to keep the money coming in for what looks like it's going to have to be "the rest of my life." It's like, I have to be ok with being only a human guinea-pig for the medical profession, for the rest of my life? And yet even THIS won't qualify me for more "depression" studies.

Yeah your past defines what you can do in the future. It's called "you must pass the background check in order to ever work again." What part of that do people not understand?! Last time I was arrested and I answered truthfully the question about being suicidal, the bitch got surprised. WTF, people, of course you're better off dead than with a damn criminal record that will KEEP you on the streets and unemployable for the rest of your life!!! I mean it's beyond "Depressed Anonymous" here it's "Suicide Anonymous" time.
