Applying for a job with a criminal record can prove to be frustrating and demoralizing. It does not matter if the conviction was 1 year ago or 20 years ago. Unless your record has been expunged and sealed, it might be difficult to get past the application stage.
In this video, I will be discussing some useful tips on applying for a job if you are someone with a conviction on your record. These tips are helpful if you have 1 or multiple convictions.
The most important takeaways from this video are:
1.) Get to know your state laws (Ban the Box).
2.) Do not give unnecessary information unless asked.
3.) Use reference letters and personal letters of recommendation to explain convictions.
