By the beginning of the year 2019, the population of Trenton, New Jersey approached 84,000 citizens. A city of this size typically has many job possibilities available for qualified individuals. Finding work is difficult enough for most people, but it can be even more challenging for those with a criminal conviction because of lower opportunity and reduce priority secondary to their criminal background.
Skills You Would Need
Among the most significant factors that lead to recidivism is the lack of jobs for felons in Trenton New Jersey. It forces some ex-offenders to return to the old habits that landed them in prison in the first place.
That is why after your release, one of the first things you need to do is look for a job. However, it is also one of the most challenging things you would have to do in your new life.
Many of New Jersey’s top employers are hesitant about hiring applicants with criminal records for various reasons. One is the fear that a former felon tends to cause trouble in the workplace.
This perception is unfounded as there is more at stake for ex-offenders. It means that they are more likely to value their work.
Still, the reality remains that felon-friendly jobs in New Jersey are scarce. They are almost impossible to find, especially if you do not know where to look.
To make things easier for you, we have put together this list of job openings from employers willing to hire ex-offenders.
However, you must first understand what skills you would need to increase your chances of getting hired. Here is a quick rundown.
If you have strong interpersonal skills, it may help you land one of the jobs for felons in Trenton New Jersey. This is especially true if you are open to a career in home care. Most home care companies in New Jersey offer initial and ongoing training, so experience is almost always unnecessary.
Do you have a CDL-A license? If you do, many job opportunities are waiting for you. Several companies in New Jersey and even other parts of the USA are looking for reliable truck drivers.
In this job, you will be asked to pick up and deliver goods. You will be on the road most of the time, which is great if you don’t like sitting behind a desk for hours.
If a truck is too much for you, you can try driving for one of the rideshare companies in New Jersey. You can work flexible hours, earn more in tips, and meet other people as a rideshare driver.
