Hi Brad Blackmon ! I want to help you but I am having a hard time reading your post. Would you mind breaking up your post into separate sentences to better help me understand what you are dealing with?

Hi Brad Blackmon don't give up!

Sounds like a rough situation but there's definitely help for you here. Are you thinking about moving on to applying to a new job? Or are you trying to see if there's still a chance with this role you are describing?

Credit check

It is getting harder for me to find employment since my credit is bad. How do they expect to fix my credit if no one wants to hire me?

Lexington Law (on the web) are a legal firm that may be able to help. They really helped me get many things off credit reports that still go on even after the 7-10-year limit on the listing is over. Yes, you have to pay, but they are well worth it. I wandered for years because my credit was in the bucket. Clearing your credit report is nearly impossible on your own and Credit unfortunately plays a large part in getting Job, Housing, Loans and any other type of credit. They are still working for me and I am in my second month. I am already getting Credit Card Offers for limited credit. If you are on a really strict budget and have limited budget. Even if you declare Bankruptcy you are penalized and this can affect your job, etc potential as well.

Credit is a dangerous thing for anyone to have, but without it you get no slack at all. Good Employers lose the opportunity of not hiring very good, skilled and creative individuals that bring a whole lot of good experience to the company by NOT hiring them due to Credit. Another form of Discrimination very hard to prove. Do not attempt to access your credit report alone. That can ruin your credit more, also do not try to apply for any credit until you have legal assistance. This can affect your credit as well, also the pay credit cards can be a penalty on you as well. I know. I tried every avenue to clear my credit even through credit counselling which will still take years.

According to Calvin coolidge "No man (or woman) ever listened themselves out of a job." New employees regardless of their credit must bring Curiosity and Creativity that are the life- blood of any company.

My suggestion is contact Lexington Law, tell them I referred you and see if they may be able to assist you at not only addressing your Credit issues, that are keeping you from even getting hired. Good Luck and keep me posted.

Dear Kathleen,

I know u r in big trouble.but do not put urself down telling this thing to everybody..talk with ur well wishers..no doubt they must be 1or 2only..u can start working on minimum wages. Like a grocery store...or just start working with small businesses like cloth shops..or do volunteer work where they can pay u too..may be it could be a small money..but try to use a good reference..then after at least 6months u will be able to move on..but u need to be honest n punctual..keep ur employer happy as he is doing a big favor for u..then move on to a bit better job..talk with ur creditors n start paying easy instalments..u must be able to do it..but in beginning u will work too hard. May be physical work..but just ignore it n think about ur future..it will work for u..when u r young u can work hard..so do not waste time..work it out..pay off ur debts n live a happy life..it just happens once..wish u all the very best...

Lost Transcripts!

I have been employed now for over 2 months, fully trained and ready to roll for a major insurance company. I was put on administrative leave approximately three weeks ago due to an incomplete background check. Turns out after 34 years my high school has lost my transcripts and never enrolled. My college was shut down by the State of California. Even with letters from my adviser and principal and students who attended my graduation, the district will not accept that.The state of California states they are still working on receiving transcripts from several colleges at this time, and do not have mine yet, but the case will remain open. I have over 18 years as a RE agent and over 4 years as an office manager for a healthcare agency. Any suggestions for me before my current company lets me go since nothing can be verified?

Hi Dina: Oh my god, that sounds awful! Quick question - when you reached out to the state, did you reach out to their licensing agency to see if they've stored your records? Apparently that's where transcripts go when schools are closed down. Here's a little more information: https://answers.ed.gov/link/portal/28022/28025/Article/667/Transcripts-from-closed-schools I would also see if you can contact an employment lawyer about this. They usually offer free consultations, so it's worth looking into to see if you're protected by law against situations like this. Let me know if this helps!

I got fired after 4 yrs at Lumbermens on Toledo because I got put on medical marijuana.

I don't think right. Now try n to get another job seems impossible. No one wants to hire me. I drove semi. Always on time always made all my delieverys on time. D.o.t is a crock of shit. This doesn't interfere with my ability to do my job. In fact I was much more intune. I worked forklifts loading n unloading. Clean shop. What's going to happen when they legalize it for personal use?

Trouble getting hired with a old criminal record

I have been offered two positions and then before the start date the companies contacted me to redact the offer. They say something in my background check disqualifies me from employment. This is so frustrating because I am more than qualified for these positions! I'm becoming discouraged. Any advice is appreciated

I would check Your background and see what’s on there. Sometimes you can have those things removed. I hope this gives you some type of insight.

Looking for work.

Hello, I am new here so not used to this just yet. I have 2 job's but what I need is 1 GRATE job. Here is my wall. I am a" convicted felon" I did not commit a crime I just took a deal for someone elses crime through negligence of not knowing the court system. I am at all purpose maintenance technician handyman landscaper plumbing and electrical. I do not have a class A license but I I am willing to obtain one if a company can offer me the proper training. I was working for the Contra Costa Community College for over 9 years until this unfortunate incident happened and I was tricked by attorney and I'm pretty sure you know how it goes from there. I'm looking for something that's at least more than $25 an hour locally in the Pittsburg, Antioch, Concord, Brentwood or Pleasant Hill location if anyone has any job offers please notify me. Thank you for your time.

Hi Alex Macias , well it sounds like you're looking to regain your eligibility status from before your unfortunate incident in order to allow more access to better paying employment opportunities. Having two jobs is a tremendous benefit and a good start but like all good things Alex Macias re-establishing that status is going to take some time.

You also mentioned that you have Plumbing and Electrician experience. So you currently hold a state license within any of these trades? Have an active license will immediately boost you income potential. Here's a short list of other activities and alternative options you can incorporate within your current job search strategy:

  • Apprenticeships , google local apprenticeship programs in your area or go directly to the DOL - National Apprenticeships page and take a look at the related Plumbing and Electrician apprenticeship programs being offered in your area this year. These 3-5 year programs are designed to earn as you learn a trade and receive licensing sponsorship.

  • Build your skills, okay so you have the work knowledge but what about the business/management hard skills? There are plenty of affordable and free online career development websites where you can virtually take on Management courses and certifications. Check out udemy.com , https://www.coursera.org , and www.edx.org and see that they have available.

  • Networking is Key, do you know about the Fidelity Bonding Program ? This is a good way to add a more employer piece of mind around liability insurance coverage standards and second chance hiring opportunities. Visit the social media pages of companies and organizations you want to work for and ask workers if those companies offer or would consider adding a bonding benefit.

  • Keep an eye out for leadership or better paying job options at your current job(s) first. Don't discount advancement opportunities where you are first and always try to maintain a solid working relationship in case something better opens up down the road.

  • Stay connected to your community, look for local and reputable organizations where you can get involved, contribute and build relationships. You never know where or how your next great job opportunity is going to materialize. Also, having a strong community to reach out to for references is always a tremendous asset when seeking out better second chance hiring opportunities.

Listen, Alex Macias , the road back to better paying employment is going to require patience, perseverance and determination but the rewards you will receive at the end of your journey are worth the effort.

Please feel free to reach back out to me if you have any questions and remember to go back to the For You tab at the top of this page and follow the #record topic so you can stay informed on local second chance hiring events, trending news and important local employment information. Thanks & Good Luck!!
