deaver1999 in Bellmawr, New Jersey said: I understand where you are coming from. I suggest that you continue to be strong and exercise your faith. Do not look at this as you not having a second chance but look at our economy we are not the only ones suffering. We do need to do something and I think that we need to first compose a letter a universal one to distribute to our local governments. Another idea I have is we really need to come together and start our own organizations. I have been comtiplating this and trying to do some research about things that we could do. I know that most of us who do time have some sort of skills we need to figure out how to convert those skills into income. Do not give up think positive keep praying. Contact any local agencies that may help ex-offender and yes we are EX Offenders because WE NO LONGER OFFEND THE LAW or break the law DO NOT GO BACK TO YOUR OLD WAYS PRAY FRO STRENGTH for it comes from the LORD seek some support close to you and keep you head up. Please send any response to me via email regarding any self employment ideas one may have at deaver1999@yahoo.com also do a search for 30 entrepreneurs under 30 they are creative individuals that may give some insight. Keep in touch

above board in Athens, Georgia

I received a pardon from the State of Georgia after paying tons of fines and restitution. I got a degree from the University and worked in management for years. They will not expunge any crime if you pled guilty. If you are above board and have truly changed, then petition the State for a pardon. I believe it removes the charges from public record. I did have to personally call the State and talk to them as I applied for several jobs and the felonies still showed up. They corrected the oversight and the crimes should only appear to State or Federal government checks. I am unemployed but in Graduate School with probably no prospects at a good job due to the economy. Good luck to all of you.

You can use www.xamire.com to check on employers that hire in your city. They're new though, but have a ton of potential. I've already seen them on my news. Theres also a community, and in the forums, you can see all the contact information for help agencies in your state (I think all of them are there)

maybe you should have asked what my skills are instead of assuming that they don't meet the criteria and blame them for my misfortune of getting a job. In case you haven't seen the news, the job market is still at a low... There has been people with outstanding skills and years of experience who have tried twice more times than I have, and then again, look at people who have no experience. They gotta start somewhere. So every single job just can't hire someone just because of "experience."

We are a telemarketing/outbound sales company that has and ddoes hire felons (given they are qualified for the job). We are a Georgia branch of a nationwide company that has a successful history of giving felons a second chance to make not just a good, but a great living.

Put simply, if you have a GREAT phone presence, like working in a very high energy (some employees call it rock n' roll) environment, and are willing to work hard and persevere, email me at jobs.teamfard@gmail.com.

Mayerlover in Urbandale, Iowa said: I have experienced the same problem and it was not a felony. The police raided my house over 30 dollars worth of marijuana that was my sons and now it is on my background check and making it hard for me to get a job or a place to live.

Just for your information, the police department is unconstitutional and what they did was illegal, they are nothing more than a private security agency hired by the city, that's all. Only the Sheriff dept is truly legal because we vote for them, not the police officers. We Americans had better wake up to what is really going on, this nation is out of control and it is destroying people's lives, sorry to hear that about you.

I am also a prior felon and can relate to you all. I have tried and tried to get a job, but have been out of work for 3 years. I received my felony back in 2003 and still am being punished for the crime. No longer do I constantly put all my time in trying to work for somebody. Instead I have started a non-profit organization called Felons For Freedom. My purpose is to advocate and promote awareness about the lack of jobs and opportunity for prior felons who are sincere about becoming productive members of society. Through this I hope to be able to give training and provide the necessary resources and assistance needed for us to obtain employment. Right now I have a petition site at Felons For Freedom - The Petition Site at CARE2.com

Tina in Atlanta in Charlotte, North Carolina said: Kevin I don't have a job for you, but I am having the same problem. I got fired today because of my felony record. I was honest on the application by marking yes to "do you have a felony", they still did a background check, I worked 3 days just to be told they couldn't keep me. This is the 3rd job in a role that have fired me because of my past. It's 4yrs old. I have several shopplifting offensives, but have since changed my life, went back to school for an associates degree in Health Information Tech (almost finished)maintaining a 4.0 gpa and still can find a job in the medical field. I feel hopeless. e-mail me if anyone knows of a company that will hire someone with experience in medical billing/office Administrative/receiptionist. tnmckthn@hotmail.com

The best option is to seek employment within Doctors' office because they typically hire based on resume,experience, education and references versus backgorund check. Best wishes!

Everyone with a record needs to apply at places that discriminate and turn around and sue them under Title 17 of the Civil Rights Act which prohibits not hiring someone on the basis of their felony record.

I'm planning to go back to the same employers just to set them up and have documented proof that I have the experience to do the job, stayed out of trouble for over 15 years and still didn't get hired on this basis.

Meanwhile I have some creative ideas that's worked for me on my website such as freelance jobs in graphic design, freelance websites, etc. I also know of a major grocery store in Atlanta & Florida that will hire felons.

Hello,

I came across your post and it is very encouraging. Everyone always says it is a rare case to get a pardon.I have a cousin who had a run in with the law years ago and has had no trouble since. He applied for a pardon and in Georgia it takes a long time to hear back. We always hear stories of how these pardons don't really matter or they still dont prevent info from showing up on your background check.

From your experience how long did it take to hear from board?? Did they send a letter or call you?

Did you use a lawyer to submit the paperwork?

Has the background check process been easier since your pardon?

I appreciate your help and thanks in advance for your response as it has been rare where we have talked to anyone who has received a pardon in Georgia.please email me here justin_bryant26@yahoo.com

Thanks

Justin

I also have a petition website at Care2.Com-Felons for Freedom the petition site. I encourage all to support and go to that website and sign the petition. My goal is to provide the necessary resources and opportunities for ex-felons to gain employment and live productive lives. Please support and pass the word along. Good luck in all your endeavors.

Donna in Atlanta, Georgia said: My son is facing a life of difficulty because of a stupid mistake he made 4 years ago when he was 18. He was arrested and convicted of possessing 1 (yes, one) Xanax tablet. For that he was given a felony, which he must carry for the rest of his life.

I always thought felonies were reserved for REAL criminals - rapists, armed robbers, murderers. But my son has never stolen from anyone, never hurt anyone, has never done anything except be a teenager lacking good judgment at the time.

I think it's wrong how quickly and easily felonies are thrown at people, especially young people. They don't always consider consequences, but they have their entire lives ahead of them and they shouldn't have their future ruined because of a stupid mistake.

It's no wonder the prison recidivism rate is so high in this country. People have no chance of turning their life around. It's a shame there isn't an organization out there that would fight for people who aren't criminals but who are treated as if they are.

Right now my son is working with a friend in a landscaping company, but he wants to be able to do something better. I pray he'll get the chance. Good luck to everyone. I hope things work out for each of you.

Donna- Here is what he can do. He must go to the governor's office of your state run by bureacrats that have ONLINE forms pdf type he can download and he can get a hearing for a full pardon hearing. All states have some kind of state office for this. An Espongement is best of course but a full pardon is the next best thing. You will get an email when they have read over your case-form. Good Luck and don't delay. Doug

Georgia does not expunge records. They will only seal records of things you were not found guilty of. Dont depend on employers, they play god by looking into your record and mistakes you have made, instead, go out and get it yourself. Start your own business. Mow lawns, do odd jobs for individuals not licensed employers.

Dont depend on uncle sam to work things out for you because he will not. Go out and get it.

LOUIS ARNOLD in Atlanta, Georgia said: I have been looking for work the past three month no luck,I have a bond by the state of ga. most company tell me even with the bond there insurance company just want insurance a felony.By the way Iam a felony

What it all boils down to is this........When you look at what women with through when they tried to enter the work force, they faced objections by men. They banded together and protested to enter the work force.When African americans were prohibited rights that caucasians held, they protested in many forms and eventually gained some rights.When gays sought to be treated as others in spite of their sexual preferences, they rallied and gained what we call Gay Rights. When Mexican americans were faced with racism, they too stood up and accomplished a great deal. Now us as ex felons are oppressed and opposed by the same system, we are a group of people just as women were, just as African american were, just as gays were, just as Mexican americans were.....So, what are we going to do cause coporates of this country feel that we hold no worth and continue to keep us in down troddened position......

You are the type of people we face every time we are turned down for a job. Becasue your son was caught with (1) Xanax, he is exempt. No welcome to our reality. It's people like you who stand back and point the finger at us, who are violent offenders, but your son is in the samme category as us. Think on that soccer mom.

What it all boils down to is an open and bold march to Washington , D.C. We should be requesting for one another's contact and mobilizing. It is no mistery as to why we are going through what we are going through. Why keep asking why and a crying about the issue. It's a set up to deny us employment so that we can violate our paroles and/or catch another case only to be returned. Now it's what ever with me.....Now get at me if you are serious about petitioning the government for a redress in this matter. Other than that, quit crying about your situation......

It sounds like more of a problem with the US Justice system. Why don't they just give you the choice to stay in prison with free rent, free cable, and free gym membership; if they are not going to let you be employed to support yourself? The Justice system encourages you to rob people to survive, and then they have a reason to slam you with more fines and bills you will never be able to afford. If I were you, I would move to a different country.
