Jobs for Felons

The population of Newark, New Jersey contained about 285,000 people as of 2017. With this many citizens, numerous jobs in a wide variety of areas are available to the general public with a clear record.  Finding work is difficult enough for most people, but it can be even more of a challenge for someone with a felony conviction because felons are not always allowed the same opportunity for employment and given a lower priority because of their criminal record.

Jobs for Felons in Newark New Jersey

One of the most challenging parts of serving time in jail is returning to a non-welcoming society. Many felons find it difficult to get a job and often struggle with identifying helpful resources to guide them.

Despite this, there are many available jobs for felons in Newark New Jersey. However, every job may not be suitable for multiple reasons. Therefore, we have put together a list of potential opportunities with ideal personality traits and skills to help you find the right position.


Working as a driver is perhaps one of the best ways to find a job after serving your sentence. While some positions require getting a commercial driver’s license, many also allow working with a regular one. Besides that, knowing how to drive is a precious skill that will help you in your everyday life.

Here are some common types of driving jobs available for felons in Newark New Jersey:

  • Truck Driver

Did you know that the New Jersey metropolitan area has the highest number of resident truckers? With almost 40,000 resident truckers, the city is an excellent place for felons in Newark to find employment.

Working for freight companies ensures an excellent benefits package. It is a great position to consider if you prefer long commutes and are comfortable behind the wheel of a freight vehicle.

  • Shuttle Driver

Compared to truckers, shuttle drivers often have a fixed schedule and route. Therefore, if you prefer routines and shorter commutes then opting for a shuttle driving position is a great option.

You will also find that your Commercial Driver’s Licence (CDL) will also be a requirement for shuttle driving gigs. Thus, having the CDL helps open up multiple opportunities.

Sales Representative

If you think you have a persuasive personality, enjoy problem-solving, and love interacting with people from different backgrounds, then we recommend exploring sales positions.

As a sales representative, you will have a combination of administrative and responsibilities, making every day a new experience. Also, such positions are great if you want to grow in the corporate industry.

Warehousing and Shipping Operator

There are many packaging, shipping, and warehousing jobs for felons in Newark New Jersey. A wide range of packaging companies such as Amazon is always open to hiring felons. You are also not required to have any formal education, and a high school diploma is enough.

As a warehousing and shipping operator, your responsibilities will vary between accounting for inventory and loading or unloading freight vehicles. If you have outstanding organizational skills and do not mind the heavy lifting, then these are some great positions to consider.
