Many job opportunities are available in a city the size of Austin, Texas, which had a population of approximately 950,000 people as of 2017. The general public that has a clear record will have the most opportunities available. Having a felony offense will significantly lower chances due to limited opportunities and a lower priority secondary to a criminal conviction.
The Fair Chance Hiring Ordinance of Austin addresses the lapse in unemployment while increasing the reentry of qualified ex-cons into the workforce. This 2016 ordinance prohibits private employers from asking an applicant’s criminal background.
It also regulates how they can use the information they gather. Through this law, ex-cons have a bigger chance of finding jobs for felons in Austin TX without the fear of being discriminated against.

Watch your manners during the entire interview. Offer a firm handshake to all the people inside the interview room, if it’s allowed. Don’t forget to thank them and show your gratitude for the chance to present them with what you can offer.
