I understand if you are good with the computer and various programs there is a website called www.upworks.com and companies hire people to do contract positions. The positions vary and some could be permanent other smaller jobs. Also, having garage sales may produce extra income. If you have the stuff to sell you can consider selling at the flea markets. You can get a food safety license online Mine cost $19.00 and you can work doing food sampling at your local grocery stores. I have worked with thebigorangetalentportal.com They will send you different events in your area and you pick which ones you want to do some pay I usually get paid $75 for four hours. You get paid a month out but if you start doing the events at a weekly routine it doesn't take long before you are making steady pay. Then the food safety license can lead to other positions. Check and register with staffing companies can help too. Babysitting positions. Call centers are now offering positions working from your own home. Also selling items on ebay.com or Amazon.com, also the Facebook marketplace. I have sold a car, jewelry, and a gemstone on the FaceBook marketplace They are now set up to include shipping so you can print your shipping label and ship directly to your customers. They pay through the site just like eBay and you get paid shortly afterward. They are offering no fees through December. I hope this helps. I have been looking for a steady position since January. But have struggled for some time now. I guess we just have to be creative.

Felony Friendly Job? Does It Exist?

I have a non-violent felony from five years ago. I learned my lesson but employers treat me like dirt and refuse to give me a job. Anyone know what kind of jobs I can get as a felon?

There is hope for you

I’ve seen some posts on here about those looking for a job and trying to overcome a criminal record. I just want you to know that there IS hope for you! My brother made some mistakes and spent five years in jail. It was hard when he got out but he eventually landed a job as a clerk… at the very court where he was originally sentenced!

Don’t give up. Redemption is possible.

Hey Folks, I just spent 21 years in the clink. I'm 43, motivated and very physically fit. I have my own truck, transportation is not an issue. My issues is, I'm a violent offender! There is nothing worst than being known as a violent felon, even though (statistically speaking) violent offenders are far less likely to re-offend. Property crime criminals and drug offenders are faaaaar more likely to re-offend and "become" VIOLENT, and yet, they are overwhelmingly selected for jobs, while violent offenders don't even get a second look. I understand the stigma all to well, but folks, just because you see the word "ASSAULT" it doesn't actually mean there was "REAL" violence. It only means there was physical contact. You could've shoved someone, refused to place your hands behind your back to be cuffed-up, in-which case, they had to place their hands on you and if you tried to resist (in anyway) that's an assault, normally they intentionally charge you with an assault crime, just to force you to plead guilty to resisting arrest. I hate the fact that I'm a statistic! I want to be a success story and I'm doing everything I possibly can to increase my level of success. If you have an words of advise, offers of help, mentoring, resource networking, etc, please feel free to contact me either here or via e-mail at ---> deuce197316@gmail.com Thanks for the platform and opportunity to share my thoughts. Now I'm going to enjoy some PIZZA!!!

Hi Shonda, I recommend that you follow your passion no matter mistakes made in the past. Have you seen the Sentencing Laws and felony discussions going on in congress these days, Obama Calls for Less Prison in Overhauling Sentencing Laws. There's bipartisan agreement that things need to change in this system. There even talking about removing the ‘felony’ question from the application.

Depending on the charge and the age of the charge, you might be able to get it sealed or expunged for little to no cost. You may want to research that by contacting the county clerk office.
