I am taking legal administration, but I have a criminal record and i'm a felon.Which is one of the reasons why I took something in law, I like it and know alot about it. What is the best advice for someone in my position in finding a job
I was thinking that I can ask to work for them for free for two weeks so I can get a recommendation. What do you think?

Honestly, I don't know. If you were convicted of a felony, I think it is pretty unlikely that you would be admitted to law school or hired by a law office. That may not be fair, but doubt you'll find a job in the law.

Use your networking connections that you have from school, whether it be an attorney or a judge. Everyone most likely knows each other in the same field in your area. Also, be upfront and honest if asked about your felony.

I was thinking I could ask them to work for free for two weeks, in order to get a reference.
I think the best idea is to tell them your a felon and that you should get a judge to assist you on getting you a job or someone who has a high degree in law
