 Tips & Information For Working Online As A Felon

Why work from home online?

Finding online jobs for felons is easy and can earn you a very significant income if you treat it as a real job. As you know many felons are discriminated against for jobs that they are very qualified for. Many companies will not hire a felon even if they were convicted 20 years ago for a non violent crime. This is why one of the reasons working online is getting more and more popular among felons.

Many advantages exist when you work online. A few include;

  • Saving money on gas, bus fare or transportation costs to and from work.
  • A lot of online jobs will not complete a felony background check.
  •  You can deduct some of your rent, electricity and other costs from your taxes.
  • You never have to leave home and do not need work clothing.
  • You are able to eat at home saving you money on food and drinks.
  • You will have more time with friends and family and also less work related stress.
  • There is no traffic to sit in and will have more time to do the things that you like to do.

So everything sounds perfect when working from home online right? Well there are a few cons as listed below.

  • You must be a self starter and disciplined to be a successful at home worker.
  • You will lose out on social time that you would normally have at work.
  • You may sometimes feel disconnected from the real world


What type of online job is right for you?

Only you can answer that question ultimately but it is best to match your skills to what the company does. If you are not someone that is comfortable with sales then just look for something different. The above companies do hire felons for online work so you do not have to worry about being rejected. Since this is not a concern put some real thought into what you would like to do and not what you have to do!


What you need to work online

It is always best to work from a desktop computer or a laptop. Smartphones and tablets are not really possible to use when working online, at least for most jobs.

Website Testing – You will need a computer, hi speed internet and a headset or microphone.

Upwork – No requirements except internet access.

Amazon Mechanical Turks – No requirements except internet access.

Web Search Jobs – You will need a computer and internet access.

  1. Hello everyone!

    I was released after serving a 17 month sentence, since being released its been a MAJOR STRUGGLE finding income for my family of 5. After searching and searching i hit a hard wall, Lyft will NOT even hire me, its so F-in hard. I found something working from home, it cost me $550 to join and its been the best thing ever. I make over $4k a month (not the best but darn good) . Let me know, if interested. Thanks

    1. I have been a felon for 13 years. I still have been unable to find a job that has decent pay and is not a job that some high school student or monkey can do. It’s hard to find a “career” or something that brings in enough money to forget the fact that I am performing menial, mind-numbing tasks. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    2. I am searching for information for my husband who has several felonies. I too have a felony, however, upon release, went back to school and got a BSW (social work). Please provide me with more details of your experience. (

  3. Hi ,

    I had never been arrested , never been to jail and never even had a run in with police for 37 years of my life up until about 6 months ago , I got arrested and brought in for something that I did 4 years ago and was not even aware that I had a warrant for my arrest for trafficking and possession . Thankfully , I was able to get them to drop the charges down to a simple sales and possession charge and go from there. Regardless , I have spent the past 3 months since I have been out going from place to place trying to find a job and have had next to and no luck because of the conviction. I have lost my licence and am begining to lose hope. I don’t have a trade anymore since losing my licence as driving was what I had done before i got arrested. Now I don’t know how I can be self sufficient for the first time in my life and could use help. Ever since I was 18 I have had a job that included some sort of coverage such as housing or food or both and now with this conviction I have lost the abillity to have those things. Can I get some guidance >

    1. Hello therr, looking for job opportunity while living and taking care of aunt. I will be 3 yes past my current felony convictiction and still on paper. I have two felony possesions. I have other convictons none I believe are felonys. I have a good niche for writing, typing, and a wonderful will to succeed.

      1. Nationalnethealth is offering a work at home solution. Doing phone interviews. Contact 570-285-4630 and leave a number where you can be reached.

  5. I don’t think I will ever understand this. If a person has a felony yet has paid their fine or done their time then felon should not even matter when it comes to a job. If it’s not murder or sexual then it should not matter. I have a felony for changing the “make payable to” a small $106.00 check that I was told to change by the owner. He got mad at me for something 6 months later and said I forged the check. Yes I did change it but at his instruction. Had no lawyer, no money and simply pled guilty to stay out of jail. Why is a $106 check charge 24 years ago hurting me now? it is just ridiculous to say the least.

    1. I tolally agree the systems is the problem. Its totally set up to fail us. I myself has a felony…My then boyfriends ex and some friends attacked me then lied and sid that i tried to hit her with my car. I was offered 1 year probation and an SiS but i didnt not fully understand the justice system and decided to take the case to court…to my surprised i was found guilty…i was only fines 2000 but I was also branded with the scarlet letter F. Before this incident I was gainfully enmplyed infact I had 2 jobs… In the time since the convection i have gone to school and received a BSW. I would love to get my masters degree but I have yet to find a job with this degree. The system to so unfair. I wish I knew what I could do to change the system.

  6. Superb blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any tips? Many thanks!

  7. i know in tx when filling out a application it says have you had a conviction in 7 years i think it was and so you dont have to disclose it at all. i had 2 felonies and was hired to work as a driver for dominoes pizza. im not sure if they even run a background check but it had been over the amount they required for disclosing on the app. maybe that will help someone.
