If you have a criminal record you know how difficult the search for jobs, housing, training, and many other resources can be. You have most likely tried searching for and applying to jobs through your local newspaper and other online job search sites, only to be turned down once an employer learns of your criminal record. The same can be said about trying to find housing or educational opportunities. Even worse, is that your criminal record continues to impact you long after you have served your sentence. At Second Chance Jobs for Felons we only work with employers and programs willing to commit to hiring returning citizens like yourself.
Every employer has their own criteria for making hiring decisions. While every employer considers your experience, skills, education, and references, if you have a criminal record they may consider other factors as well. These factors may include your time since release, type of conviction(s), number of convictions, and what you have done since your release. In addition, employers may also have their ability to hire you restricted by local, state, or federal hiring laws regarding hiring individuals with criminal records. For example, in many states your ability to get hired in a healthcare field may be restricted based on your criminal record.
With Second Chance Jobs for Felons our main goal is to take this guesswork out of applying to jobs for you. Our job search takes into account many of the same factors employers consider so that you only see jobs for which you are most likely to get hired. While we can never guarantee that an employer will hire you, we can significantly increase your chances of getting hired.
Finding programs and other resources within your community can also be a struggle with a criminal record. Our searchable directory of thousands of programs puts the information you need at your fingertips and simplifies finding resources to help you succeed.
