Hello all. I posted here a while back as I went through a really bad period and long story short ended up having to serve time in jail. That was a few years ago now and I'm still struggling with work and looking for some advice! After I was found guilty and received my sentence I lost the job I had at the time. I worked as a secretary and I loved it. One of the biggest regrets over all of this is that I lost a job I loved and had worked very hard to get.
I currently work two jobs to make up enough hours. I primarily work in a hotel as a maid and I also do a number of shifts a week in a Wendy's. I really hope I don't sound like I'm complaining but I honestly hate them both and am desperate to find something new and more rewarding. The problem is I just feel overwhelmed and not sure where to start. I've applied for a few jobs only to be turned down because they don't hire felons. Even when I do get an interview I feel so nervous because I know my conviction will come up and I'll have to answer for it.
So my question is, does anyone know any ex-inmates or simply jobs for ex-inmates that might be open for me? I know I made a mistake and did something wrong, which I had to punished for but I really feel that I've learnt my lesson and deserve a second chance! Thanks so much in advance! :)
