Here are tips for job searching with a felony. Although the companies listed above are known to hire felons, it is not guaranteed that all job opportunities listed are applicable. Check out their website, do the research and follow the application process like normal. A great place to start is to make an appointment with the Hamilton County Re-entry Office. There, a specialist will help you with your resume, referral letters, and job placement opportunities.

 

Check out Jobs That Hire Felons,  Jobs for Felons, and Jail to Job for felon-friendly lists of national companies that hire felons and lists of the industry’s most accepting of offenders. HowFelonsCanGetJobs.com is also a great blog to follow on the subject matter.

 

In some cases, it may be beneficial for offenders and felons to submit a letter of recommendation along with their resume. Successful Release gives tips on who a letter of recommendation can come from. Examples are religious leaders, prison staff, parole officers or former employers. The recommendation letter should highlight the best qualities of the applicant that relate to the job they are applying for, and how that person will be a good employee.

 

Once you have secured an interview with a company, it is a good idea to research the company, what they do, and what matters to them. It is also important to dress appropriately and per the dress code of the company for the interview.
