By 2017, the population of Baton Rouge, Louisiana is around 225,000 people. A city of this size offers a wide variety of jobs in numerous areas for employment. The difficulty as a felon is that his/her record may not have the same opportunity and be given the same priority when looking for work.
Jobs for Felons in Baton Rouge Louisiana
Job hunting can be a stressful time for felons with a record. Employment agencies for felons are often not as lucrative as one might think. It is perhaps because many companies are not always comfortable hiring felons.
However, this is not always the case because there are many jobs for felons in Baton Rouge Louisiana. The best way to find a job is by enhancing and upgrading your current skill set. Acquiring new skills can also lead to personal growth.
Here are some preferred skills to focus your energies on that will help you get a job:
With the pandemic in full swing, many companies are offering remote job opportunities for felons. That means it is the perfect time to brush up on your tech skills.
Start by familiarizing yourself with basic data processing software like Microsoft Suite and remote meeting tools like Zoom. These are considered staple tools that will help you easily navigate the digital space and land various jobs. For example, there are some administrative jobs for felons in Baton Rouge Louisiana that require data entry and scheduling meetings.
There are a plethora of jobs for felons in the driving industry. Many freight companies are looking for drivers with a Commercial Drivers Licence (CDL) to help move inventory or assist in local transportation tasks.
You can easily get a CDL even if you have never driven before. That said, if you already have a regular driver’s license, the process is very straightforward. In either case, learning to drive is an essential skill that will also help you in other areas of your life.
There is a specific art to conversing and assisting people over digital means. Even if English is your mother tongue, it may not be as refined as required in most customer service positions.
There are two aspects to communication skills, written and verbal. If you are considering jobs in the service sector, then we recommend refining both these communication skills.
Service sector jobs include insurance agents and customer service representatives, among others. Most of these jobs also have an administrative role that would require drafting meeting minutes or other material. Therefore, refining your written and oral skills will help you excel in your role.
