I like to think that everyone deserves a second chance. That is the way that the world should work. Right? Part of getting that second chance is being someone who contributes to society.

If you once did something that landed you on the wrong side of the law maybe you are ready to work. You want that second chance. The first step is finding a job.

Yes it can be tough. You might think that what you were behind bars for will keep you from ever having a decent job again. Yes, it's going to a tough road but it is doable.

Where Can Felons Get Hired in Amarillo?

The further in your past the crime is the easier. If you have a theft charge you shouldn't apply for a job at a bank or anywhere you have to handle money. You just need to find the right job for the crime you created.

Having a decent job history will help you of course. The longer you work in a role the better you will look to future employers.

So that excuse that nobody will hire you is just that. An excuse. I gave this list to someone I knew who once blamed everyone else as to why he couldn't work. That just doesn't fly. There are jobs.

Now more than ever there are jobs. Don't let a past mistake make you think you can't work. Find that job and turn your life around.
