Terry, I read in one of the comments you replied to that your felony was for severe circumstances. Without actual knowledge of what you were convicted of it will be hard for the community of Ask.com to help you. I suggest going to the web site: jobsforfelons.com that crowtrobot gave you. Good luck with your search. I'll look back at this question often to see if you post more information on your convictions.
