My boy got a job... he was a convicted felon for a violent offence, mind you. He got hired for a Christian based trucking company (people hear this and say, well it was Christian--good people, forgiving, understanding etc). But in reality, they were really judgemental, the only reason he got on is because his homeboy put his name on the line--saying if he don't work out you can fire him as well.
!! was real. Anywho, he's now a lead with the team... I mean he works in the office now, gets his hands dirty still in the warehouse but he's making about $20 something an hour.

get into the stock market. sales jobs.start a business or non profit organization. my bro is a felon, hasnt had a job in 7 years, with a few drug charges; Fluffed a resume , put some bs job contact info that was a friends # , and got a job at a high end buffet in Vegas after a good recommendation. I think its the resume that really matters. cant put a half a## resume to go along with your CR.

I'm glad I saw this on top of the section again..
I hope this thread helps people.
It's crazy, my very first post shows how worried/depressed I was..
Now I've never been happier in my life.
Good luck to everyone and just remember I'm living proof you can make it after a conviction..
First step is ACCEPTANCE (took a long time)..
after that everything falls in line.. just work hard and PAY YOUR DUES..
Feel free to ask more questions.. I want to help people!

So many case-by-case scenarios really. I’ll just speak generally for those labeled a typical ‘Loser’ & didn’t sit longer than 10……
-Motivational Speaker/Writer (you’d be surprise if you perfected your craft & found something pa##ionate to speak on (i.e maybe your past tribulations) how many opportunities & how much money companies/employers will pay you to come speak.
-Computer Technology –left it vague purposely. Get into the computer field, though you may not be eligible for certain security clearances depending on where you apply obviously….trust, I know a few previous ‘Losers’ that +180 their life.
-jobs just to maintain livelihood are really city by city.
…more importantly; if you have the ability, try to have your record expunged (also city by city)..depends how old & where you live on if they even can entertain concealing your record
