Asked by Steve on September 4, 2017

When I was 22, I became a convicted felon over some pretty serious and hurtful choices I made in life. I ended up being incarcerated until the age of 33; I am 36 now. Since my release, I have worked hard to move forward with my life and make positive decisions for myself and others – I’ve stayed crime-free, I have gotten an Associate’s Degree, and I am pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree currently. I was also fortunate to find an entry level job; one which I was able to get promoted several times due to my hard-work and dedication. However, the company I worked for was bought by a much larger company that doesn’t allow felons to work in any higher sort of capacity, so basically I am stuck where I am at and don’t have any future prospects for job growth. So, I find myself looking at the possibility of finding other employment: My questions are as follows:1.Is there anything that I can do to mitigate my criminal past somewhat when it comes to future employment? 2.Are there any fields or companies who may be willing to look past my bad choices and give me a chance?Thanks for your response!
