Here are a few tips on locating information featured on this website.


On the Forum & Discussions page of the website there is a section of tabs, under the word CATEGORIES,  which can be found below the chat room to help making searching easier. For example, job leads can be found in the HIRING section of the tabs, and job fair dates in the Job Fair section. Job fair dates are listed for various areas for the current month of the year, throughout the year.


**(F.Y.I. On each  job lead there will be either the contact information such as a phone number, physical, email or website address, or there will be a link to where you can apply for the position.  If the link to apply is provided please copy & paste the links to your browser.) **


    ****ALL job leads are dated so please pay attention to the dates that are on each of the posts.****


In order to locate job leads in your specific area, please use the key tags at the bottom of the Forums & Discussions page. For example, if you live in Dallas, you may use Dallas or DFW area, as well as, any other areas that are in the Dallas area. There are also key tags for the number of years  it has been since your conviction date, key tags have been included for 1 year up to 20 years. For example, if your conviction is 7 years old (meaning you were convicted in the year 2014) you may use the key tag 7years to search through leads for those who have convictions that are 7 years old. Another example, is if your conviction is 5 years old (meaning you were convicted in 2016),  you may use the key tag 5years to search through leads for those with convictions that are 5 years old. Key tags are included for many different career fields as well, which include, but are not limited to clerical, customer service, general labor, and manufacturing. These key tags have been provided in order to make your searching experience easier, so please utilize them to aid in searching the website.

About Me

Mae Hughes, 2nd Chances 4 Felons ( Founder) My name is Mae Hughes. I am the founder of 2ND CHANCES 4 FELONS. I started this company because of the hardships I faced as a felon trying to turn my life around. I looked for help but could not find any. I asked people for suggestions, I went to several places and even searched the internet but STILL could not find real help. I found it very hard to get people to see past the fact that I am a convicted felon. I went to countless interviews explaining my situation and how much I have changed. Yet and still no one would hire me. I was at my breaking point and BEYOND frustrated so I made a decision to NOT ONLY HELP MYSELF, BUT OTHERS AS WELL. Instead of getting angry and giving up, I did the opposite. I turned my NEGATIVE into a POSITIVE and created this company hoping to ease the struggles that other felons may face. I created this company solely for the purpose of helping felons to know that there are second chance opportunities available to them. My main purpose is to reduce the number of felons who give up because they think that there is not any help available for them. I attended the University of Phoenix and received an Associate's degree in Business in 11/2012. I am a mother and my children are my everything, and the reason for me wanting to do and be better. My hope is that this company will be able to provide HELP where HELP IS GREATLY NEEDED !! I pray that the information I am providing can offer assistance with helping felons who are looking for a way to prove to society that there are some of us who deserve a second chance and who are willing to PROVE it through our CURRENT actions.
