Jobs for Felons

Hartford, Connecticut has reached a population of approximately 123,000 people as of 2017. Many job opportunities with a wide variety of employers exist in a city this size. While finding a job is challenging enough for most people, those with a felony conviction will face an even greater obstacle because of their felony record and less opportunity and lower priority.  

Reintegrating into society after finishing your sentence could be a long and challenging process. Unfortunately, it could be the same when looking for jobs for felons in Hartford Connecticut.

Spending time in prison negatively impacts your confidence and outlook. You will most likely have to endure rejection after rejection, professionally or personally. That is why many are relapsing to their former lifestyle, which is harmful, to say the least.

To combat these inconveniences, felons are given the opportunity to earn a certificate or learn a new skill. Making certain that they have the necessary skills minimizes the chance of them going back to incarceration due to bad decisions.

Jobs for Felons in Hartford Connecticut

In recent years, there is a massive improvement regarding the number of businesses that consider ex-offender applicants. By recognizing their potential contributions to the local workforce, these former inmates get a second chance at a better life.

While the intentions are all good, companies still have to consider the candidates’ skills. After all, they have to decide which one is the best fit for the role.

For felons, there are a couple of industries that offer opportunities for those looking to gain honest, legal work. Here is a list of the types of businesses in Hartford that hire ex-cons.


Many jobs for felons in Hartford Connecticut are for CDL Class A drivers. Because of the degree of demand for this type of work, you can expect a competitive salary as well as bonuses.

You may get weary of checking out the numerous postings for drivers, though. Nevertheless, consider it as a positive because the abundance of choices means more work opportunities.


White-collar jobs are also available for felons who live in Hartford, CN. From sales to corporate positions, you’ll find a number of options that could be beneficial, given that you meet their qualifications.

In terms of compensation, getting yourself in sales should offer the most potential earnings. Provided that you are constantly delivering the numbers, you might find yourself successful in a short period.


Compared to the first two, retail jobs are not as demanding nor competitive. As such, you may find that the rate for this type of work is not very promising.

Nevertheless, you shouldn’t underestimate working in retail. Doing so will help you develop skills you can make use of when you attempt to shift careers.

Below we have a number of job listings, followed by the top employers in Hartford and their hiring policies.

Make sure you read this entire page for your best chance at being successful in your job search.
