A past felony conviction played a big part in Renae Gray’s job search. It took 15 months of looking to finally get hired. Her strategy was to be upfront about her criminal past during interviews because she knew employers would find out anyway. Over and over, she watched as the expression and demeanor of her interviewers changed when she came clean. They stopped smiling, stopped taking notes. Applying for a job is already a daunting task.

We’ll take a look at how the hiring process can work for and against those with criminal records and blemishes on their resume.
