The population of St. Petersburg, Florida was around 263,000 people by the year 2017. With that many people, there is probably a large variety of jobs offered by a potential employers. The difficulty is that those with a felony record are typically not given the same priority and opportunity when they start applying for work.
If you are trying to reenter mainstream society, one of the biggest hurdles you have to overcome is securing a source of income. Jobs for felons in St Petersburg Florida are hard to find, especially if you do not know where to look.
There are many reasons employers in Florida are wary about hiring former felons. One is the fear of recidivism or a return to old habits. This perception is unfounded as it is unfair, but the reality is that many people feel this way.
It is making a difficult situation for ex-offenders almost impossible, as a stable job is essential to their reentry. Still, there is hope for former felons in Florida trying to turn things around. The list of employers willing to hire applicants with criminal records is short, but it is growing. They do not discriminate based on the past, and this is leveling the playing field for former felons.
Skills You Need To Have
Here are some of the skills that felon-friendly employers are looking for.
Do you know how to drive? Are you comfortable making a living out of it? If so, there are plenty of job opportunities for you in New Jersey.
That is especially true if you have a CDL-A license, which allows you to drive trucks. Many companies in the area are looking for drivers to pick up and deliver goods in bulk.
If you do not have a CDL-A license, you can enroll in a driving school to get it. Alternatively, you can apply to one of the many rideshare providers in New Jersey. These companies have rental car programs, so you could still apply even if you do not own a car.
New Jersey is home to several call centers looking for agents to handle calls. If you have excellent communication skills, you have a good chance of getting hired by one of them.
Call center companies are known for offering competitive salaries and compensation packages. Many of them also allow work-from-home arrangements.
Another skill valued by employers in New Jersey is sales. If you are good at helping people decide which products to buy, you could have a successful career as a sales agent. This position will allow you to earn commissions on top of a fixed salary.
