looking for an apt... it not that someone to split every
I haven't been on this site for a while. I must say in my research on why its so scarce for felons to find a job, I've found a few things out. How many of you seen this list of "Jobs For felons", applied and still not get a job. Well, I seen that a friend of mine on Facebook posted this list with the comment, " now felons...there is no excuse. Get off yalls lazy ass and get a job." I must admit I was highly offended and also happy cause I thought there would be help on the way. Need I say, there was no help with that list. This is what realized that many Non Offenders don't know anything about. Felonies come in degrees. All of them are defined as ANY charge with a penalty of 1 year or more. Then they go up too 5 degrees in some states to my understanding. Some places are more willing to hire those with a possession charge rather than one with a burgarly or assault charge so, some of us aren't as fortunate as others. We have to wait till a certain amount of years pass, some even with the effort to build credibility.
Have anyone had any luck??? I sure hope so. Feel free to comment. I look forward to feed back. Later guys!

I just came across this website today and thought I would post my info to see if anyone could help me or at least offer some advice and tell me not to give up. I am 34 and living in Aurora with my girlfriend. I moved to CO from out of state 2 years ago. I was arrested in my home state in 2010 with 14 felonies, (mostly drug related), because I thought it would be good for me to get away from home. Since being here, I have completed an Associate's degree in Information Technology, stayed out of trouble, and started my BS in Computer Science at CSU.
I have been working in restaurants for the last several years, even though I have about 10 years experience working in the IT field, mostly on IT Help Desks. Since I get these felonies on my record, I have been reluctant to even apply for a real job. I guess I just don't want to face the rejection. I quit a job waiting tables last week and am currently seeking employment. I have been applying to restaurants, but I would really like to find a real job in an office making better money and doing what I do best. Does anybody know of any companies in the metro Denver area that will hire felons? My charges are all 5 years old now and are non-violent. I just feel like this is going to haunt me forever.
Any guidance, information, or encouragement is greatly appreciated!!
I'm in my 40's mother of 2,in the middle of a divorce from a 20 year marriage. I have a pending harassment simple misdemeanor which I am finding to be a bit of a problem trying to get a job,or to some other things I need to do. I have little to no credit and may have to file bankruptcy. I'm will have some kind of job soon. I need housing for us to get a better life and away from the verbal, mental and physical abuse from their father. We need help to be a normal happy family. One of my children has some special needs and she needs this most of all,she can't grow in our current situation. Need a break - feeling annoyed
