The population of Baltimore, Maryland, is around 611,000 people as of 2017. A large city like this typically offers a wide variety of jobs. However, if someone has a felony record, he or she may have a significant challenge when applying for these types of positions because felons may not have the same opportunity in consideration when applying.
Finding jobs for felons in Baltimore is a little frustrating because not all companies are willing to hire someone with a criminal record. And we can’t blame them for that. These companies may have experienced some difficulties with an ex-con worker before, hence the hesitancy.
Still, there’s no reason to lose hope. Here, we list potential jobs you can apply for as an ex-offender.
Available Jobs for Felons in Baltimore
Your conviction should not define you as an employee; you just need some determination and patience to get a job. Here are some high-paying jobs suitable for felons that you might be interested in.
Carpentry is one of the top jobs for felons in Baltimore, offering median pay and growth potential. To get a job in this industry, you must have basic knowledge about carpentry, as it has many specializations.
Some work inside the shop, while others have to endure the weather outside. Some felons can boost their carpentry skills by enrolling in a trade school for additional learning.
2. Truck Driver
There’s always an increasing need for truck drivers in various industries. If you want to try this job, you must have a commercial driver’s license and an eagerness to work hard.
Some truck drivers want to work overtime, but they cannot drive for more than 14 hours a day. As they say, truck driving is a lifestyle choice, as you can be on the road for several days before you can return home.
Many ex-cons choose welding as a career path after finishing their time inside. Just like carpentry, there’s a wide range of specializations to choose from, depending on the company you will be working with. Welders have plenty of advanced options as long as they are willing to learn and improve.
4. HVAC Technician
Another possible option for ex-offenders is being an HVAC technician working in homes, schools, offices, and more. According to occupational professionals, it is one of the fastest-growing careers at this time. HVAC specialists install, replace, or repair different types of HVAC systems. These experts are usually on call 24/7.
Ex-felons may also consider working as an electrician. It is another in-demand job that would require competent workers. Electricians can work anywhere, whether indoors or outdoors and in homes or commercial buildings.
Below we have a number of job listings, followed by the top employers in Baltimore and their hiring policies.
