Jobs for Felons

Houston is a huge city with millions of people and seemingly endless opportunities. Yet, it can still be challenging to find jobs that hire felons in Houston Texas. After all, being a former offender means that opportunities are not as readily available, given the stigma that comes with having a felony record.

Luckily, there are still companies in Houston that accept all applicants regardless of background. That includes providing opportunities for former offenders. Find out what you need to know about jobs that hire felons in Houston Texas, through this quick guide.

Jobs That Hire Felons in Houston, Texas

You might feel like there are only limited options for you because of your background, but that’s not true. From being a truck driver to venturing into a career in insurance sales, there are a lot of opportunities waiting for you in Houston.

So, what do you have to do to land the right job for you? Consider the following tips:

1. Know your skills.

As you look for a job, the first thing you need to know is what you can offer. What skills do you have? What knowledge can you offer that will prove helpful to the job? Even if you don’t have any work experience, knowing your strengths can help you choose a job that’s good for you.

Have a CDL A license? Perhaps try applying for driving or logistics-related work. Can you communicate fairly well? Maybe a career in sales or customer service is perfect for you. If you think you can wait tables and establish rapport with other people, try your hand at retail or restaurants.

These are all honest jobs that will give you consistent pay, which you may not have considered a possible job for you before. These can all be opportunities for you if you let them be.

2. Know what you want.

All the same, you should also look further towards the future. Where do you want to be, and what do you want to do later on? These are important considerations as you look for a job to start you on your journey.

3. Accept your right.

Just because you are a former offender doesn’t mean that you should be settling in terms of your work. It is still your right to have fair wages and good working conditions. If you believe that you deserve all of these despite your background, you will open yourself up to many more opportunities.

As of 2017, the population of Houston, Texas, is approximately 2.3 million people. In a city this size, there are a large variety of jobs available. Anyone with a felony record may have a significant challenge when applying for any of these available positions, but that doesn’t mean getting a job is impossible.
