Getting a Job

Produced by Sheila Casey, Esq. Neighborhood Legal Services

If you are looking for a job, your local Career Center is a good place to start. The Department of Unemployment and Assistance (DUA) has information to help with your job search and to find out about job training.  

Getting a job can be difficult, especially if you have had problems in the past with criminal charges or if you have bad references from past employers.

If you have a criminal record and you have questions about the effect of a criminal record on finding work, read CORI and Employment. If you have questions about what information a past employer can give as a reference, read Dealing With a Bad Reference.

Find Legal Aid

You may be able to get free legal help from your local legal aid program. Or email a question about your own legal problem to a lawyer.
