Legally employees shoudl not withhold jobs based on a criminal conviction. But one has to be realistic. If you are a sex offender, it is highly unlikely that you will get a job as a teacher, or if you have committed fraud dont go looking for bank jobs or any job for that matter in a financial institution. Use your time in prison to educate youself and sharpen your skills. One of the easiest jobs is to own your own business. If you cant afford it but you have a business plan take any job you can get until you get what you want. Do not give up!!
