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.

lsbrown in Stockbridge, Georgia said: i am 36 years old with a 3year old daughter. i recently moved to georgia from va. i had an unfortunate situation happen to me in 2008. i was originally convicted of a felony for marijuana posession with intent. the charges were droped to a misdemeaner. i have been trying to obtain employment and background checks are stating that i have a felony. i have obtained documentation from the court where i was convicted. no one will hire me. i need to work. if anybody knows any company that will hire me please email me @larinebrown76@gmail.com. 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.

cmdavis23 in Orangeburg, South Carolina said: I have been to this site in a minute...I found out recently that there are 12 states that forgive convictions after 7 years.. Mass, New York, Texas, Coloroda, Washington State, Iowa...I cant remember the rest right.. Oh yeah the District of Columbia...I know in Texas and Coloroda you can earn up to $75000...Also abt 2 weeks ago.. the District of Columbia( Washington D.C.) passed legislation to ban the box.. Meaning remove the question about arrests or convictions from most applications.. We have to keep believing and the way this nation is shaping up...things are going to work in our favor.....Every time I find information I will post it to help someone. .....Remember prayer works..
