Jobs for Felons

It’s challenging living with a felony charge under your name. Most people and even companies discriminate and judge you even before they know about you personally. It is one of the hurdles that you have to face as a felony offender, but don’t lose hope, especially when looking for jobs for felons in Kalamazoo Michigan.

Even with a felony record, you can still apply for some local jobs in Kalamazoo, Michigan. If you are determined to change your life and support yourself, we have a few tips and listings for you.

Tips in Searching for Jobs for Felons in Kalamazoo Michigan

1. Apply To Small Businesses

Small businesses don’t usually check your criminal background. It’s a hassle, so they would just hire you as long as you are qualified for the position.

You can go to restaurants or small stores where you can work as a sales clerk. The salary is pretty decent, so it would be a good start in building your career.

2. Be Honest During the Interview

Some companies will not tell you that they have already run a background check. They will just interview you and wait for you to tell them about your felony record. It is always better to be honest because your employers will find out about this criminal record one way or another.

You can tell them honestly about this and explain that you are trying to change and you want to have a new life. At this point, it will depend on the company whether to hire you or not.

3. Check the Company Policies

If you want to apply to bigger companies, the first thing to do is look for employers willing to hire people with felony charges. Felony is a broad term, so you should research and check if you are qualified for a particular position.

You can apply to other companies that are not hiring people with felony charges, but you have to be prepared for the result. It’s better to be prepared before you start applying to avoid wasting your time and effort.
