Since you’re already looking for a job, why not search for a high-paying one? There are a few options that you can choose from, including:

1. Welder

Welding is a gratifying job, especially if you have the skills and experience required in the field. Once you get out of prison, you can start learning how to weld metals. Some community colleges offer training so you can apply for a license.

In California, you need to be licensed before working as a welder. Most welding businesses will not ask you about your criminal records. As long as you are skilled or you have the basic knowledge, they will hire you.

2. Truck Driver

This kind of job is very specific, and you need to have experience in driving a truck. Remember that driving a truck and driving a car is not the same thing.

With online deliveries becoming more and more popular, the demand for truck drivers also increased. As long as you know how to drive a truck and have the suitable license, some companies won’t really care if you’re an ex-felon.

3. Sales or Marketing Staff

You can always enter the marketing industry if you have what it takes to persuade customers to buy products or services. The best thing about this is that you have an option: work offline or online.

If you’re skilled with words and you can persuade a potential customer to buy, you can work in malls and other stores as a sales clerk. You can also work at home and be an online marketer.
