2. Felons will have to actively look for companies that hire felons. Networking skills are a must to finding a good job. Call and ask friends, family, fellow church members, former co-workers, etc. for help in looking for a job.

3. Consider upgrade skill sets. This is especially important to consider if the felon has not had any recent training or work history. Not all jobs for felons require training but this will definitely make a person more attractive to potential employers over another. Hopefully, once good training is acquired then advancement in a chosen career is possible and with that earning more.

4. It's helpful to check government or non-profit organizations that can help search for felony jobs. Asking a local or state employment agency if there are any resources for felons in your location is a good place to start. In some states, there are even job fairs for offenders where there are hundreds of companies with felon jobs available.

There are benefits to these seemingly low end jobs. It is easier to fund searches for higher-paying felon friendly jobs while having a job. Having consistent work no matter the type will make finding a job easier. Use these low-paying jobs for felons to build a work history - its way better than having a long period of unemployment on a resume.
