Most ex-felons are afraid to start a new life because they often get discriminated against by society. A simple criminal check can prevent you from landing a job. Although there are available jobs for felons in Birmingham Alabama, most people don’t know how to find them.
If you want a fresh start and change your life for the better, you need to look for a job to support your needs. So, how can you get started?
How To Search for Jobs for Felons in Birmingham Alabama?
The first thing that you need to do after getting released is to look for a job. You just got your life back, so you need to start thinking of how you can live a normal life even with a felony record. Below are a few simple tips before you start your job hunting.
1. Avoid Huge Companies
Even if you have a degree, landing a job in a huge company would be like boiling the ocean. Your felony record would be the main hindrance to your future, so it’s better to look for local jobs for felons in Birmingham Alabama.
You can start with local restaurants and work as a service crew. They are very lenient when hiring and don’t usually care about your criminal record.
2. Ask for Help
You don’t have to do everything on your own since there are workforce development centers that would help ex-felons find a job. You should check the social service centers in your area and see what kind of help you can get from them.
3. Get Back To Your Education
Improve your academic background and skill sets since it would help you find more jobs in your area. If you don’t want to work in restaurants, you can look for classes at the community colleges in your area.
You can take a training program or complete your GED. It would be a good start because it will show that you are making progress positively. It would be easier to land a high-paying job if you have more skills to showcase.
