    Finding work when you have a criminal record...

    Discussion started by Dirty_habiT - May 22, 2004

    I was wondering how many people here have had to do this. What's the best solution to getting a job if you have a criminal record?

    If it's some juvenile shit you can say you've never convicted and not be lying. I'm told juveniles aren't convicted, they're adjudicated. Yeah though, I say fuck it, lie. I don't think most places can get your criminal record (state and federal jobs aside, why would you want one anyway? and who wants to be a security guard or some shit like that). If your average joe employer really wanted to know what was up with your criminal record I think you'd have to go to city hall and give them some forms or some shit.

    You could work at McDonalds. Not really. In fifth grade kids actually wanted to work there because they like it so much. Pathetic.

    amateurs...

    just lie.. if they catch you, tell em that they told you it was supposed to be expunged.

    and i put communty service on my resume as volunteer work; most organizations won't remember why you're doing it, and, as long as you're cool w/ the folks, it prolly wont come up in a convo.

    i have this problem. Im on probation but i never got convicted it was just an arrest. Ill be off paper in 2007. I usually just lie on my applications. either thator i can actually tell teh truth and say ive never been convicted of any crime. But some applications ask if you have ever been put on probation. Go to court. Get a badass lawyer and tell them your interested inlaw enforcement >They can have it expunged . It works . then just ditch the idea .

    1.LIE

    2.WORK YOUR ASS OFF FOR THEM

    when they catch you either give them a sob story or say so and so said it was ok at the court....either way if they see you are a hard worker and an asset to the buisness, 9/10 times they wont fire you.

    The plus side is that having a criminal record is a good way to get out of jury duty.
