To everybody here,
If you want things to change you must change but as you all know with your past sometimes changing and learning is never going to be good enough. It seems even though you have paid for your mistakes nobody lets you forget them. Has far has the 2 strike deal well that's just a bunch of BS if you know what I mean. Some times to get things done you must take things into your own hands. Never the least we all need jobs or do we just need the income to pay the bills and buy the food we need to live?

It's hard some times to see the light at the end of the tunnel when things are so dark. We not only want things to change, we need things to change. This is usually where people fall back into their old habits. I want to help and what I mean by that is I want to share some thing with you and if you understand it you are going to start to see the end of that tunnel but first I want you to realize you will have to believe in YOU. I would love to say there is an easier way for you to understand.

Let me ask you this, how many people do you think are in the same boat? I am looking for the ones that will understand by helping others the rewards, well lets just say will be incredible for the ones that's see it for what it truly is. So with no further ado I want to invite you to some insights you might not of knew about.

I realized and I hope you do also

I wish I could hire you all directly. I know personally that the system is not as great as it should be, especially when it comes to job opportunities to people coming out of any supposed "correctional facility."

I duo however have a business opportunity for anyone interested. Playboy has joined the energy drink arena and is looking for independent marketers for their drink. The name sells itself, and is NOT IN STORES, yet... That's where YOU come in.

Go to www.pureNRGfx.com/globaltalk to start your OWN business and hire yourself, and make a way for others.

PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

The dept of justice needs to correct that on your background check...either that or its just saying you were "arrested for a felony" and had charges dropped to a misdemeanor and the employers just look at it in the worse way. I would move to a marijuana friendly state if all else fails. You can also try felon re-entry programs for advice and assistance. They helped me in my state.

Thanks for the job link I'm checking it. I was laid off from a professional job 13 years ago. Even though I have never been arrested, due to being unemployed so long, some employers wonder how I managed. Well I am a very resourceful person, not a felon like they assume.

The felon card is just one of the many tools employers use to weed you out so they can hire their family and friends. That's the way it's been and the way it will always be.

And do companies really give criminals a second chance? Why won't they give hard-working people like me or anyone else a second chance?

Seems like when a company messes up or the economy goes sour and they have to lay off people, those laid off people are treated as non-hirable criminals. What's up with that?

For the past 10 years I have worked in the field of prisoner reentry helping formerly incarcerated men and women find employment. I was not in Georgia. I did find that our participants were able to find work through temp agencies. Temp agencies work with many employers some hire people with 'backgrounds' and some won't. Apply with as many temp agencies as you can. You may also have luck with places that do 'day labor' such as Labor Ready.
This will help you fill in gaps in employment on your resume and give you a chance to pick up some extra skills and training. Volunteering is an excellent way to add to your resume and it is a great way to network and meet people but you don't want to make your background the topic of conversation. Most people say "I need to get paid I don't want to volunteer." Let's not forget a lot of companies have a 'social justice' philosophy which means they give back to their local communities by volunteering. Wouldn't it be great to volunteer along side someone that works in HR for that company you've been wanting to work for.

I am desperately searching for a job and I don't have any convictions; but I left an abusive relationship in Ohio and pressed felony theft charges against me. The case was dismissed but I feel it is hurting me some how. Applied for several Data Entry positions, interviewed and tested higher than others; but still haven't heard from anyone.

If the felony charge was dropped & you now just have a misdemeanor it might be a bit easier to get a job. First you need to get the background info corrected. Go to this site & read about the programs they offer. www.gjp.org/programs/

They even do free workshops around the state to help people understand what can be done & how to do it. The next one is 8-11 in Macon. Here is a link to it- www.gjp.org/resources/trainingspresentations/

This group has lots of info to share about how to deal with getting a job while having a criminal background. Also check with the Ga Dept of Labor. They have a program to help people with convictions find jobs. It's the TOPSTEP program.

Good luck! It isn't easy but don't give up.

I hope it isn't just helping with a resume. No offense but once employers learn of the conviction, your resume can say you are Bill Gates & they still won't hire you. My husband has had 12 job offers since February & all have been rescinded due to the felony on his background. His resume gets him the interviews & his ability gets him the offers. The conviction kills the deal. Unless you know of companies that are open minded there is nothing a resume or skills that will make a difference.

I say almost impossible because through god all things are possible I haven't lost my faith in god only in the goodness of man. I'm at the point of homelessness and the point where the system wants you to go back to your old ways and not being a new man. any advice in georgia let me know.

I don't know how long ago your conviction was but try checking with the Goodwill Career Centers. There's one in Duluth that has a very nice lady there. She tried to help my husband. You might not want to do it but I suggest you contact Jay Neal's office. He's the director of the Governor's Office of Transition, Support, & Re-Entry. They're supposed to be helping but they live in LaLa land & won't see that the Ban the Box & the system isn't working. There is legal discrimination against people with criminal backgrounds. We have contacted them to let them know there is a problem but more people need to speak out. We have also written to reporters to get them to do a story. If more people speak out something has to change.

I hope you will find a job soon. It's tough but there is hope. Try contacting Pastor Johnny Hunt of First Baptist Church of Woodstock. He's on the Governor's Interfaith Council for re-entry. Also, the Archdiocese of Atlanta has a re-entry program that might help. Look online for that.

Recruiter in Arlington, Washington

6 months ago

A few words of advice to those of you with felonies looking for work - from a recruiter:

1) Be honest on the application and background check. Just because you have a felony conviction doesn't mean you will be automatically disqualified. While I haven't read every post, the one about the 18 year old receiving a felony conviction for possession of a single Xanax tablet jumped out at me. That's the type of offense that is likely to be forgiven in the background check vetting process, if you are honest about it on the application.

2) Don't pursue jobs working with personal/sensitive data. I'm seeing many of you frustrated at not being able to find work in medical records or data processing. That's the type of job that has less leeway in what can be forgiven because of the proximity to sensitive data.

3) Do pursue jobs with small businesses. Many don't have the felony conviction as a disqualifying factor.

That's really good advice. We have found that most businesses (large & small) do background checks. That can be a deal killer. Very few employers are willing to hire someone with a recent conviction. If it's over 7 years they seem more accepting if nothing else has happened.

People that have white collar skills have a much harder time of getting a job post conviction. This has been our experience & shared stories from others in support groups. It's as if society can't handle an educated person being in trouble. It's like they're stuck back in the 1960s with their attitudes.

I would definitely explore one of the Department of Labor career centers (TOPSTEP) that have experience with job assistance for people with convictions. Also, Goodwill has career centers & will help depending on the convictions.

This is amazing. I did not know of the 7 year rule in Nevada! Thank you for this. I no longer have to disclose that info. I appreciate this very much.
