Where can I go in Chicago that will have jobs for convicted felons?
i am a convicted fellon, drugs and iuntent to sell, with a bachlors degree in network managment, have about 3 interviews a week with all the knowlage and the best resume my mind could think of. it is not the second year i have not been employed. i tried wallmart, yeh they employed me on the spot untill they found out my background. the best thing to do is think of something people need, even if it is as small as a postit idea, they guy is a milionare now, and make it a reality. every night before i go to sleep i spend about 2 hours thinking about my future, i have yet to think up something that is worth while. so remember if you get a felony, DONT WASTE YOUR TIME ON ANY UNIVERSITY. you'll just end up in debt. the best advice i can give you is keep trying, and i am near giving up on that advice myself. (start your own business) with minimal cost and high output (not possible anymore) and even if it was, you cant get a loan from any bank. soo. whats left but to sell newspaper and penuts on the streets of chicago? you tell me....... (employment agencies will not halp if they find out your a convicted fellon) dont even go there. in some cases you can wipe the fellony clean, in others you can hide it from non-government employers, in my case non applies. hmmm cant think of nothinhg else, how about going to europe, starting fresh. yeh.... that crossed my mind too :P JUST FACE IT your a 2nd class citizen now, and if your not a citizen, BYE BYE, cause deportation isnt far behind. (thats what i'm facing) heheh. and here i am trying to give advice.
JUST KEEP TRYING IS ALL I CAN SAY.

Hey bobo.. don't sweat the small stuff. I am a mulit-offender all drug charges from AMERICA'S WAR ON DRUGS..back in the 80's til 03, have tuned my life around and I just don't even bother to tell anyone the deal. For the simple reason that if Bush can pardon fucking Libby, then why should I be honest anymore?
Employment Department for Chicago will be the best place to start and find help locating specific employers in your area that will hire felons. You can also check Craigslist.
