Who'll hire a felon?
When applying for a job, should I lie about a felony. And if I don't
who'll hire a convicted felon?
A lot of people will say, 'Hell, who's to know?' - well, you are, for
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.
