Who'll hire a felon?

Steve wrote:

When applying for a job, should I lie about a felony. And if I don't who'll hire a convicted felon?

Dear Steve,

A lot of people will say, 'Hell, who's to know?' - well, you are, for a start

Weigh it up:

  • If you lie, you'll always know that one day, you could lose the job.
  • If you lie, you could face further charges, maybe end up in prison. You know the details.
  • If you lie, you could lose the friendships and trust that you have built up since.
  • If you lie, you could lose your own self respect.

On the other hand,

  • If you are honest, you won't find it easy to get a job, any job
  • If you are honest, you won't get as good a job.
  • If you are honest, you won't get as good money.
  • If you are honest, you will sleep at night.
  • If you are honest, you will prove you are genuine, and can be trusted; you friends will be real friends.
  • If you are honest, you'll gradually move up to better jobs
  • If you are honest, you'll always have self respect

Now, I'm not going to pretend it will be easy - either way - but, if you have decided to leave felony behind, then the choice is easy - because if you lie, you'll never leave felony behind.

Good Luck.
