Jobs for Felons
by Michael Ford
"Sorry, we don't hire FELONS!" Finding employment after being released from prison can be one of the most difficult tasks a felon faces. No one wants to hire you but parole terms require you to have a job or go back to jail. Even if you do not have parole requirements, you have to support yourself and that means you must face the question on every job application: "Have you ever been convicted of a felony?"
Over 80% of all employers use some form of background check today which greatly limits the job paths available to convicted felons and even those convicted of misdemeanors. Just because someone has a felony conviction does not necessarily make him or her a bad person. Unfortunately, most employers do not understand this distinction. There are many reasons, many valid reasons, someone can be convicted of a crime which can even result from them standing up for their rights or being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Many felony convictions are for non-violent offenses like failure to pay taxes or refusing to testify against a friend and similar offenses that are hardly crimes against humanity. Yet these poor souls are treated no differently from mass murderers when it comes to finding jobs. This guide will help ex-cons and their families by providing important information you can use to find employment plus it explains background checks, how to deal with a conviction during an interview, and much more that will help you after your release from jail or prison. Order your copy now and take the first step toward a new life.
