    Exclamation Employment Problems From a Record for Retail Fraud

    Hello,


    In 2000 I was sentenced for 3rd dregree retail fraud in the state of Michigan. I havent done anything or look forward to anytime in the future since then. I keep applying for different jobs that interest me , some of the excuses for not getting the job are I didnt meet the qaulifications when I know I was over-qualified for the position. Other excuse somestimes are related to my criminal record. I was wondering how long does this stay visible to employers in the state of Michigan? How long does it stay on my record? Is there anyway I can make so called "invisible" to employers? I am tired of working jobs that dont interest me and I think this is stopping me from getting the job I want. Please help me out here. Any advice is helpful.

    Jay

    Since this is now a matter of public record, I suspect that it will always be there.

    Start low and work your way up.

    You might consult with an Attoreny and see if this can be expunged. Other than that your criminal record is forever.

    That sucks, what do you mean by starting low and work your way up? I dont want to work in a factory, I like working in a store or automotive shop because I have more experience and enjoy it. any suggestions?

    Question Re: Employment Problems From a Record for Retail Fraud

    Does that form and etc. actually work for employment reasons? how much of a percent will it happen in my favor? the reason I ask is $50 dollars is a lot to dish out if its not guaranteed to be removed/non-public to employers. Please let me know asap!

    If you want an expungement, it's how you get one. If you don't want an expungement, feel free to ignore what I posted.
