As you can tell, entry-level jobs at Boeing are going to require some specific skills. That said, let’s look at how to get a job at Boeing with a felony.
Tips to get hired here with a felony
According to Boeing, you need to apply online like any other applicant. But after reviewing what they deemed their entry-level jobs, it would honestly be very difficult for a former felon or someone with a misdemeanor to work here.
Many of their entry-level jobs require a bachelor’s or a master’s degree, with scientific and math skills. However, Boeing does have entry-level jobs that require basic office skills or experience; it’s simply the U.S. security clearance that would make this job out of our reach. However, that is not to say it’s impossible.
If this is somewhere you are determined to work, here is how to get hired at Boeing with a felony:
We recommend you start with making sure you have the skills for the job you are interested in. Then build an impressive resume so you can land an interview.
Boeing looks for candidates who have technical skills, including engineering and advanced math. If you’re hoping to land an entry-level job here, you’ll need to have post-secondary education and even some industry experience.
Any time you’ve worked in a supply chain — ordering supplies, organizing their delivery, keeping detailed records including accounts payable — you’ll want to highlight that. The skills you developed are right in-line with what they’re looking for.
You have skills that someone without a felony doesn’t, even if it is just the ability to survive. Use that, along with your other skills, to sell yourself and to out shine all the other applicants.
Who knows, someone might see that you are worth the effort and be willing to help you fight for the security clearance. We all know that sometimes that is all it takes . . . someone to help us fight!
