Preferably in Corporate America or Government.. but any industry.

Hopefully this thread can be a good place to give some of us hope and also get some advice.

My uncle was in prison for 5 years for theft. He got out and got a job sorta quickly if I recall. His dad was working at an oil change center and his dad kinda got him the job. Eventually his dad fell off a ladder and couldn't work no more and my uncle stole money from the oil change center and got fired

Now he's 34 and about once or twice a week drives his truck around looking for scrap metal people got out in their yard waiting to be picked up by the garbage trucks and he takes that to the scrap yard and cashes in oh yeah and hes a crack head lol

So I guess what I'm saying is- Having friends or family who can put in a good word for you is incredibly helpful. You also need to set yourself apart from the other 10 people trying to apply for the same job as you who DON'T have a felony.


oh wait you asked for GOOD jobs nah bruh you can kiss that good bye. You might beable to get on as a UPS delivery man

Well dude.. you can forget about the goverment.
Forget about any professorial licenses like Attorney, Architecture, Medical Practioner etc...

You are tagged as a felon and to the goverment you are now worth more in Prison than outside of it..

You can still make it in corporate america, just pick up some trading courses, get good at trading commodities.. get a degree in Business, move to Chicago and apply to some firms, if you are good i doubt they will care if you been convicted of selling drugs or whatever as long as is not r*pe or something like that.


But.. at that point they will be hiring you for their best interests, and if you are good enough to be hired to trade for them, you might as well trade for yourself and be your own boss.

Co-Sign with the bolded.

I have a friend who got in the doors as a felon as a mechanical engineer tech. From what I understand, though the government jobs separates you as a felon and a non-felon, a lot of employers don't see felons as a group. Like the guy said above, it definitely depends on what you were convicted on.

Good luck and keep applying.

I think Judge Mathis is a convicted Felon? or is that all fake? If that's the case.. you could still be a Attorney i guess it all depends on the type of felony.

already got finance and marketing undergraduate degrees.. so I guess I'm paranoid.

I still hear stories about people getting top security clearance in the government... and some government contractors getting felons - this is where I work now, but I gotta break it to my employer soon that I will be convicted. SO i'll let ya'll know soon if I do.

everyone else reading.. please keep posting succes stories!

I'm not saying you cant get a job in the government but it's going to be SUPER hard.. you will need something to balance out the "lack of responsibility & lack of trust" stigma thats attached to you.

I'm not in your shoes so I don't know, But i'll tell you one thing, if I was thrown in prison the last thing i would want to do is work for the government when and if i came out.

You can make more money designing websites than a government employee anyway...f**k 40k a year.

True that.. I agree with your statement, and I feel ya.

this is just temporary, since the jakes took all my cash, I just gotta stack up again until I start my own business.

but once again I agree with ya, f**k the government.

yea you can get a good job
not really corporate jobs though
if you learn a skilled trade you can make 40 to 50K working for a company
then doing work on the side for people you can make another 10 to 25k per year under the table


edit im in va too

Depends on what you did to earn that felony. Everything is who you know but nope, I am from Compton I know a lot of n*ggas with strikes and not what the everyday person would call a good job. Some cannot find jobs. This problem is nothing new

It's hard getting a job w/o a felony, so you know it'll be 60x harder to get one with one. Best thing to do is find some lawyer and have him help you get the charge expunged (if possible). You can always get a blue collar job if you can't find a corporate one so you aren't completely f**ked...
