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 wonderful 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 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 resumes. Successful Release gives tips for letters of recommendation.  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 clever idea to research the company, what they do, and what matters to them. Also, it is also important to dress appropriately and per the dress code of the company for the interview.

 

If there are any felon-friendly companies in the Queen City that were not mentioned but would like to be named on our list, please contact The Voice of Black Cincinnati.

If people would give me a chance to prove to them that my past is my past. then maybe they would see who i really am. I need a job that will give that chance. To be honest i don’t know how much longer i can keep going. I need help. Is there anyone who can help me?

    1. We are not familiar with that location. We encourage you to contact the establishment to confirm. Wishing you all the best!

  4. Are There any jobs as of right now that you know are hiring men with felonies. I was locked up for 13 years for some violent offenses. I was 17 years old at the time of my crime and have had a hard time finding employment. Please is you have any information for me please contact me via email ASAP. Thank you.

  5. I just did 15 years and it’s so hard do you hard out here I don’t even understand half of the stuff is out here in this world no more

  6. I am always seeking updated information for ex-offender who re-entering and looking for jobs, housing, transportation, etc. I am a volunteer prison Chaplain … I visit weekly the Hamilton Country justice Center. I also correspond with many men who are serving time and need all the guidance and support they may receive upon re-entry.

    1. Thank you so much for visiting our website and for these kind words. We hope you will follow us on social media and subscribe to our newsletter for more second-chance resources.
