Tips and Tricks Get Jobs for Felons in Newport News Virginia

Finding a job matching your skills, aspirations, and personal preferences can be hard even for non-offenders. Ex-cons have it worse as they deal with discrimination and stigma in the workplace and general society. Nonetheless, there are many companies hiring felons to help them ease back into society.

Still, you will need to work extra hard to land the perfect job. Below are some common tips and tricks to help you get jobs for felons in Newport News Virginia.

Apply Through an Agency

Did you know special agencies are working on helping felons find jobs? These agencies have collaborated with companies offering positions to felons. This helps narrow down your search and build credible references.

When you apply through an agency, their representative or career counselor will inform you of any potential openings about your aspirations.

Ace Your Interview

One of the best ways to make sure you get a job as an ex-felon is to prepare thoroughly for your interview. A great interview can help build your career.

If you are passionate about the position and have all your documentation ready, we recommend doing mock interviews with peers as practice. Another way to prepare for your upcoming interviews is by practicing some common questions that you anticipate will be part of the process. This way, you will be prepared to answer any unforeseen question that comes your way.

Avoid Big Companies

Many big companies don’t usually hire felons unless otherwise mentioned on your website. That means rather than spending so much time applying for such positions, we recommend looking for new companies that hire felons.

Align Yourself With Policies and Values

The best way to apply for jobs as felons is by aligning yourself with the intended company’s policies and values. Research about the company to get a better understanding of it. Doing so will also help you answer questions specific to the company that the interviewer might ask.
