People with criminal records have legal rights when it comes to pursuing job opportunities. Still, while federal and state laws are in place to protect them, the list of companies that hire felons in North Carolina is not that long.
This is a pressing issue as one out of every four Americans has been convicted of a crime. If you are among them, looking for a good-paying job in North Carolina can be a long, difficult, and downright frustrating process.
Why It’s Challenging To Find a Job as an Ex-Felon
Most companies are apprehensive about hiring people with any form of criminal history. If they find out that an applicant has been convicted or even arrested, it can significantly reduce their inclination to hire that candidate.
While the state law protects job seekers with misdemeanor arrests, it allows potential employers to ask applicants about misdemeanor or felony convictions.
So, if you just got out of a North Carolina prison and are eying for a job, this subject will come up. All you can do is take the opportunity to explain how or why it happened. If you fail to put their mind at ease, there is a good chance that you would not get the job.
