Tips to get hired here with a felony
So you’ve decided to apply, but you’re stuck at where to begin. Lucky for you, we have you covered! We’ve put together some reminders that will help you with the main three areas in applying: The application, resume and interview.
The application can be filled out online, but what if you don’t have access to a computer? Remember that the library provides computers and internet to anyone in need. Another option is to see if you can get a paper application.
Fill it out completely and match your skills and experience to the job you want. If you can show them why it makes sense to hire you on paper first, you’ll get an interview!
You may be thinking, “This is a fast food joint, why would I need a resume?” Well, for starters, employers need to see what you know. A solid resume is a wonderful way to out-shine all the other applicants.
And we have created a guide to help you in this area. We will show you how to include jobs you held while incarcerated too!
How do you do that? Take, for example, the canteen position you had. This job gave you experience in stocking and customer service. These are skills that will be useful at Steak n Shake.
Prepare for the interview by practicing with a friend or even in front of a mirror. Remember to maintain eye contact — which shows interest — and give the best examples of your work when answering questions.
This is also the ideal time to discuss your background. You can control the story and explain the situation at the time, as well as the changes you’ve made in your life since.
