Finding Jobs as an Educated Felon

Most convicted felons will enter society again after they have completed their sentences and been released back into society. The vast majority will definitely need to find a job to help support themselves and any family members they may need to assist. In order to get jobs for felons, education, training and knowledge of local laws is essential. The most essential educational qualification a convicted felon will need is a high school diploma.

Most companies that are open to hiring a convicted felon want the candidate to have completed at least twelve years of schooling. Many prisoners enter the penal system without such a qualification. Companies that hire felons typically require this qualification just to apply...

Start Your Own Business as a Felon

Despite having done their time, many ex-felons find it hard to pick up their lives where they left them before being put in prison. Due to society's preconceptions about felons and their distrust to hire them, it falls on ex-felons to carve a new path for themselves and thrive in what is currently an economy on the rebound. All hope is not lost though, as the government has gone to great lengths to provide ex-felons with a way to start their own business and start earning money for themselves.
 
In addition to these government programs, there also a host of valuable non-profit organizations that are more than willing to help ex-felons settle into homes and find job positions that will allow their true potential to flourish. Unfortunately, ex-felons are at a disadvantage when it comes to applying for grants, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's impossible to attain one. The most important factors to a successful grant application are...

Getting Back on Your Feet After Jail or Prison

Your Parole Officer, or PO, should be, if not the first, one of the first three people you see when you first get out.  Why?  That way, you know a) what's expected of you to do, b) what's expected of you to NOT do, and c) how to plan your calendar.  Your PO will tell you how long you have until you are required to have employment, housing (or better housing), how many (if any) 12-Step meetings you will be responsible to attend, and what documentation you will need to furnish as proof of all these.  In addition, your PO is your first, and only, buffer between you and a judge sending you back to jail or prison if you get into a jam.
 
If you need housing, employment, a list of 12-Step groups, to apply for (or reapply for) Social Security Disability, or SSD, and/or Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, to apply for Welfare and/or Food Stamp...

How to get your Felony Expunged

People who have been convicted of a felony have trouble getting their lives back to normal. Fortunately, there is a legal proceeding called expungement that can help. This is the only way that individuals can clean up their criminal records. It may not always be easy, but it can be successful when the right process is followed. Whether a person needs to buy a new car or house or apply for a job, a clean criminal record can make a big difference. With this, it is best to opt for an expungement in order to come out with a clean slate.
 
Convicted offenders should be aware that their criminal records will never disappear on their own. They have to do something to delete them. The court has the power to have these records eliminated. This means the judge will decide if the applicant qualifies. If they do, the...

Finding Jobs and Careers as a Convicted Felon

Considering the nature of their crimes, it's often very difficult for a convicted felon to get back into society, and it's even more difficult for them to find work, housing and support to help them readjust to life outside of prison. A tarnished record prevents employment since employers are usually unwilling to hire someone with a poor history, which leads to major consequences on society.
 
Even when the economy is in fair shape, former felons still have difficulty trying to find work, facing a 75 percent unemployment rate the first year out of prison. Without a job, former offenders need to rely on the taxpayers and public assistance for help, especially since they still have fees to pay for being out on parole in most cases. Without a job, they cannot pay the fees, so taxpayers often continue to pay for unemployed...
