I’m truly glad you have been able to rebuild your life. I wish folks down here in the “Bible Belt” South were as open-minded. I have industry-recognized certifications in the I.T. field and graduated with honors from an I.T. course on April 21, 2017. I am a member of the National Technical Honor Society. I can’t get any employer to give me a chance. As soon as the background check comes up and I disclose that I have a felony that dates back to 2002, job offers are rescinded every single stinkin’ time!
