Companies That Hire Felon’s

You have just left prison or have a felon from a previous conviction that you cannot remove and therefore understand that not every company is going to look at your application. One of the best ways to find a new job is to apply to a company directly.

Applying to a company directly rather than using either a job board or a recruitment company is the best way for two key reasons.

If you use a recruitment company, the company where you get a job will have to pay for a fee for your application to the recruitment company. Applying directly to a company means there is no recruitment fee involved and therefore the company will be more likely to take risk on a candidate knowing that it will not cost them anything.

Job Boards are brilliant for companies to collect resumes and in my experience, a job on a job board will easily collect over a thousand resumes in a week. The problem for you is that unless you’re one of the very first candidates to apply to the position, your resume is likely not to be seen given the recruiter has too much choice. Most candidates don’t bother to email directly to a company their resume, because it take time and therefore, if you take the time to tailor your resume and cover letter to each company, then you’re resume will likely be read and you will be shortlisted for any jobs that are in process.

The problem comes that not every company will accept a resume from a convicted criminal and therefore there is no point in wasting time and effort tailoring your resume specifically for a company, only for it to be dismissed as soon as they see that you have a felony.

Below I have prepared a list of companies that will hire candidates who have felon’s. Its best to apply to these companies first before you start exploring other opportunities.
