Is there a website specifically where I can just look at jobs for felons? Or does anybody have any advice on that? I am a recovering addict and have been sober for a year and a half and Don’t really have any skills or experience with much of anything because of my past but I’m a very quick learner highly intelligent detail oriented and a people person. #felony #jobsearch #advice
I'm not hearing back from employers I had a long road and I have felonies but people change and that was 5 1/2yrs ago someone give me a chance
Why do most corporations believe that just because you have a criminal record your guilty? What ever happened to your innocent until proven guilty? There was never an investigation done on me and besides I am innocent! I was a victim of an online scam and now I have to pay for it the rest of my life. There truly is no justice!
Yes I am a convicted felon so many years ago I never been to prison I never harmed anyone I get along with anyone and everyone I have been married for over 30 years I am a granddaddy and I haven't been in trouble since 1997
I'm a returning citizen back into the community and it's been hard for me to get a job,I've been gettin denied because of my serious offenses that I did time for,but I'm in need of employment and I'm struggling...any suggestions?..thank you for your time
Like many with a distant shady past I am struggling to acquire meaningful employment (or any job for that matter). I want to encourage everyone that there are people out there who have the forgiving heart to hire people like me and you. Keep searching, talk to the people in your life who genuinely care and won't try to just feed you a line. The resources are there, church family, sites like JobCase, and other less known groups like MERS: Goodwill in Saint Louis. And pray... Be thankful for what and who you do have. And don't forget past employers, they may surprise you. I've commented a few times now. And read the replies. Way to go, friends, on being encouraging. It really matters. The only other suggestions is making sure these employers know about the federal bonding and tax credit programs that are available ONLY if they hire ex-felons (emphasis on "EX"). Kelly, keep it up, and remember, you have us to talk to. God bless, everyone.
