High Paying Jobs for Felons (3)

Do not apply to large welding companies or construction companies since they will run a background check. Look for smaller shops that have a few employees, it is most likely that they will not bother with a background check at all. If they do then at least you can talk with the owner and explain your past rather than having someone in a corporate office deny you automatically.

Welders often earn good money even in small welding shops and is considered to be one of the higher paying careers for felons.

Keep in mind the following when looking for a welding job.

You need to use caution here. Some felonies will keep you from becoming a truck driver so you need to be careful before you ever spend a penny on getting a CDL. It is no secret that most truck drivers make a decent living and never have to worry about finding work. I have a number of articles about truck driving with a felony and I suggest that you read over everything if have an interest in making this into a career.

(Video) How Can I Get A Job As A Convicted Felon?

Many trucking companies, if not all will pre-hire you, meaning that they will agree to hire you if you get your CDL. Call them and talk with a recruiter and they will work with you to get pre-hired. Make sure you tell them about any felony convictions, any convictions actually. This gives you a decent guarantee that you will have a job if you get your CDL.

9) Roofing Jobs

Well… This might not be the job for everyone but it is a good career for felons since a lot of roofing companies are small and locally owned.

Many of them will hire you on the spot as a laborer. If you work out they will promote you and pay you more. Roofers can make anywhere from $12.00 per hour on the very low end to $30.00 per hour.

10) Masonry Jobs

A job in masonry can pay well and be a long term, life long career for felons. Like most construction jobs there are a lot of smaller companies that do masonry work and are flexible with felony convictions and/or criminal records. Being a mason is a broad term. Within masonry you could be a brick layer or a stone mason or any number of other specialties.

The pay ranges greatly and when you first start you will be a basic laborer. As your skill and knowledge grows you will move up and earn more. Being a good mason, with a variety of skills can turn into a very high paying career. It is possible to get hired on with no experience or previous training.

11) Military Career

It is hard to join the military with a felony and every branch is different. You are going to have a uphill battle the entire way but is possible in SOME situations. Here you can find some information about each branch of the military.

  • Army
  • Marine Corps
  • Coast Guard
  • Air Force
  • Navy

The Army is the most lenient when it comes to considering the nature of the felony. Ultimately, the Army is the largest branch and has the most jobs that need to be filled. It is important to keep in mind that it is possible that the Army could reject you while another branch of the military could accept you into their ranks.

Like the civilian sector, the military offers a nearly endless variety of career field options to choose from. There are administration specialists, mechanics, scientists, drivers, pilots, infantry, supply and logical personnel, medical technicians and doctors, intelligence and law enforcement troops, you name it!

If you are passionate about making a career out of the military then talk to a recruiter and start the process. It won’t cost you anything but a little bit of time and patience.

12) Oilfield Jobs – Drilling Rigs, Fracking and Support Services

For the foreseeable future, fossil fuels are going to continue to be utilized as the world’s major energy source. Yes, newer, cleaner technologies continue to be improved upon and exploited, but Big Oil and Gas aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. So it makes sense for felons to consider getting a job in the oilfields, because it is an area where oil companies will recruit you.

When you are looking for a job in the oilfields avoid the large companies like Halliburton. Look for smaller drilling companies since they are known for overlooking felony convictions.

(Video) Top 20 Tech Careers for Felons

There are several downsides to working in the oilfields. One issue many workers do not like is that drilling rigs tend to be located in remote areas, away from heavily populated areas. The other problem is that it is a very up and down business. When it is up companies hire like crazy and when it is down they lay off.

Salaries range from $33,000 to $73,000 and you can search for oilfield jobs on rigzone.

13) Electrician Jobs

Another great choice for felons who don’t want to sit in front of a computer all day! Most new electricians will work through a type of apprenticeship, until they can work on their own. This is a fantastic way to gain experience, learning directly from a specialist in the field during the course of their training, which will also incorporate in-class lessons. Electricians are categorized as either an Apprentice, Journeyman, or Master Electrician.

Since nearly everyplace on Earth is wired for electricity, there is literally an endless amount of high paying jobs for qualified electricians. Apart from home electricians, there are options for working directly with construction power companies, but most tend to work in either manufacturing, construction, etc.

The average Electrician salary hovers in the area of $53,000 to $66,000. But bear in mind that licensing requirements for your state could potentially disqualify felons. Do your homework before signing up for a course!

14) HVAC Jobs

Here’s a sector which continues to grow as newer technologies begin to replace legacy systems. Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment can be found in nearly all homes, office buildings, hotels, restaurants, etc. Vehicles of all types, from planes to cars, also utilize their own HVAC systems.

With increasing environmental regulations, technologies must keep up with the policy trends, and therefore there’s always something new to learn. However, those older systems will remain in place for years to come, too, so there are opportunities for work across the board.

Because of the breadth of options, it can be hard to pin down an hourly rate, but roughly speaking,an average is $13.93 – $30.63 an hour, with overtime obviously kicking that up considerably. Again, keep in mind this is a rough range, and specialization can ensure even better pay.

Median Aviation HVAC Mechanic I salary range, for instance, is between $37,324 to $51,037. If you have a small local HVAC company near you talk to them and see what they say.

15) Graphic Designer Jobs

Another creative job which can be done either full time or as a freelancer is graphic design. This usually requires a more formal style of training than writing, especially if one is utilizing the latest technology. However, there are no licensing requirements and no obstacles to overcome when getting into this profession. Felons can easily become graphic designers and land good paying jobs if they can demonstrate their skill and proficiency.

As with writing, most businesses employ some sort of visual marketing in their advertising strategy. Magazine covers, social media ads, website imagery, infographics, posters…the list is fairly endless and many felons are drawn to the potential to work for themselves and by themselves. Being self employed can often be the highest paying career for felons and even non-felons. You don’t need a degree in graphic design to get started, and an entry level worker can reasonably expect to make about $40,000 a year. As with any job, the more talent you have, the more you should be able to earn!

Tips for finding good paying jobs

Why did I write this article about ‘high paying’ jobs for felons? Because for one, you deserve a great salary, don’t you? So it makes sense that if you are going to spend hours finding a job, and filling in all those applications, then you should aim for the best paid positions!

That said, obviously certain jobs always tend to be a bit easier to land than others, so use your strategic judgement when deciding what the best options are. Review the choices I have outlined in this article and consider which best match your current skill set or which you might want to learn more about, if you require a bit of extra training to get up to speed in that area.

  1. If you don’t have any experience in the job you’re looking into, talk to some of the small companies in your area. See if they will hire you anyways or if they would like to see you with some formal training.
  2. I also want to point out again, certain professions are more accepting of taking on felons. The easiest to get and high paying jobs are in construction
  3. Do not forget about the first three jobs I listed, lawn care, cleaning and freelancing. These are self employment options where you can make a ton of money and not have to worry about your felony charges.

High Paying blue collar jobs tend to require more work with one’s hands, and are generally speaking more physical in nature than white collar jobs, which might require one to sit in an office most, if not all, of the day. However, one common myth is that white collar jobs pay more. That’s just not true!

I wish you all the best in your job search!
