Q: I have been search for any job and I mean any job to hire me. Due to my background it seems hopeless. I have been searching and searching. I do not know what else to do. I live in the Dallas area and thought that warehouses, landscaping companies, or construction sites would give me the chance but not luck so far.
Like most felons, you may have to start small by taking up whatever job becomes available and build up your reputation and experience. I suggest starting at fast food places or other types of restaurant as a kitchen utility person. They don’t pay much but along with a paycheck, you can eat pretty well. Supermarkets may be a good place to look. Most supermarkets have overnight stocking crews that always seem to need help and may be a good place for a felon to start..
If these suggestions aren’t enough, try your local One-stop career center. Along with many services that can help you get a job, there may be counselors there who know of businesses that will hire an ex-offender.
