Click here to see a list of employers that are flexible about considering criminal backgrounds and might also be open to hiring qualified employees with other barriers.

  1. Lorel, what a brilliant posting. This resource will surely reach far beyond the world of refugee resettlement. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for sharing this list of jobs! You are such a vision of inspiration and hope. There are vocational rehab programs through each state; however, you have to have disabilities that are keeping you from working. There is no of a job but we can provide training. I will say that unfortunately at this time in the world, even with a clean record, employment is hard unless you know someone. “It is not what you know but who you know”. Wish it were different but it remains true.

      It was really helpful for all of us, even though we help a different population. In fact, this blog post is one of our most popular. Thanks to the ex-offender workforce network that made it possible for all of us. Lorel
