If you are currently looking into jobs for felons, the following tips can help you secure a job offer:
- When you apply for a job, be open and honest about your criminal history, especially if you know the company will be doing a background check. Many employers will overlook a criminal record, depending on the type of job and the industry.
- At first, it may seem like only a few employers are offering jobs for felons. As you try to find your first job following your conviction, be open to taking a job of any type. Starting here can help you increase your employment opportunities later on.
- Many manual labor, manufacturing, and customer service jobs need workers. Look into these industries if you are having trouble finding jobs to apply for.
- When you go into an interview, sell yourself on your ability to work hard and your great attitude. Do not let your criminal conviction become the focus of your interview.
