someone told me after seven years a felony doesnt have any effect on your job applications is this true? That after seven years of completeing my probation I will not have to put it on them or that it is not considered in the hiring decision...this sounds fishy I dont believe it sooo whats the scoop?
This website answers many of your questions. http://www.cvtips.com/career_advice_forum/This-felony-conviction-is-killing-me---vt6007.html
You may be able to get your record expunged, each state has different laws about former convictions when it relates to employment. You can go to a free legal advice forum and find out more info without paying a dime. Honestly, I have found in speaking with most employers about such things that they don't consider it after two or three years. Most people who fly straight for that long don't go and make a mistake again. Everyone deserves a chance and there are all kinds of laws to ensure that they do. If you feel an employer has discriminated against you at work or in the hiring process, then you can file a grievance probably with the department of labor or your local labor organization, then there will be a lawsuit in your favor. It depends on your state, believe it or not I've heard of people winning that have killed someone because they got fired. Best of luck to you.

I think the best you can do is to be totally honest with prospective employers. You can also include letters of character recommendation from friends and previous employers.
That is very incorrect. There is a version of that. Your friend must have gotten mixed up. Most companies only go back seven years on convictions. But you also you must list becasue if they go back further and you lied they can fire you at any time. Better to be forth coming. And if it was farther then 7 years most comanies wont care
