• It all depends on what you were in jail for. There are some employers that would hire you, if you tell them about your history, with explanation, before they run a back ground check. If they have to find out, by doing the background check, it does lower your chances of being hired. Good luck!

But I constantly have to prove myself more then the other guy in situations.But i do not mind it just shows I am better and i now shine in eyes that thought I would not.
