ExOffenders.net features a Web page of current links to online application pages of companies whose policies allow for the hiring and training of felons. Many large companies hire felons in entry level positions, including Ace Hardware, Dairy Queen, Epson, General Mills and Subway. Applications may be filled out online and emailed or printed, completed and taken to local franchises.

There are many full-time positions that do not require handling money or working directly with the public, including data entry, maintenance and manufacturing. Employers who hire felons often place ex-offenders in these positions until trust is established.

The manufacturing, retail and service industries -- where it can be difficult for employers to find and keep reliable employees -- may also offer opportunities for ex-felons to find jobs.

If none of the national corporations listed online are hiring, it may be best to check with community organizations or to meet personally with local businesses to explain to them the benefits of hiring rehabilitated felons.
