Who'll Give A Felon A Job?

I am an ex-felon, I served my time and I am now on probation and in need of a job but can't seem to get one. Do you know what type of jobs will hire people with felonies on their record?

Dear Charlie

I have to be honest - I don't know.

I suspect there are three problems:

1. Some jobs are closed to you forever.

2. Some employers may be sympathetic, but when there's two applicants, same experience / qualifications, they'll not take a risk.

3. Some folk will never give you a chance.

You are between a rock and a hard place, but you'll help your self on (2) by starting with jobs where there's less competition - that means poorly paid, lowly jobs.

Only when you've proved yourself will you be able to look at better jobs.

It ain't easy; I don't know that it's fair - but as (1) and (3) are with you forever, you can only increase your chances by getting whatever experience you can, and whatever qualifications you can. But it's up to you to prove yourself, the way most folk don't ever need to.
