Tips to get hired here with a felony
What if we told you a few helpful hints to help you get your foot in the door, despite your criminal record? Well, here they are!
Application, Cover Letter and Resume
When completing an application, you want to be as thorough as possible. If something doesn’t apply, simply mark it with N/A for not applicable. This prevents you from skipping over something that does apply.
The resume and cover letter are tools that get you to the next step — the interview. A cover letter doesn’t need to be long. Typically it is a brief overview of your experience and interest in the position. Your resume, however, will require more detail.
If you aren’t sure about your resume, check out our complete resume guide. We put this together in order to help you know how to include all your skills — including the ones you gained while you were incarcerated.
The GED tutor or librarian job you had equipped you with skills like organizing, computer knowledge, customer service and attention to detail.
Since you’re applying for a call center position, you’ll need to make sure you’re speaking with a clear and friendly tone . . . even when they call to set up the interview!
We suggest wearing a nice outfit that you would wear to a church function, nothing too flashy. It’s a good idea to remove piercings and cover tattoos you’re not sure they’ll appreciate as well.
Remember all that hard work you put into your resume? Don’t be afraid to show it off! Bring two or three copies of your resume with you to the interview. There is always a chance that the interviewer hasn’t seen what you’re capable of.
We already know that General Dynamics will perform a background check. So it’s in your best interest to take control and let them know about your record, before they ask. Honesty is always the best policy, so use it in your favor. This will also give you the opportunity to explain the circumstances instead of letting them draw their own opinions.
