How can I get a job when I have a criminal background?

Because each applicant has a unique background and circumstance, we recommend you speak with a local Tennessee American Job Center Specialist to assist you in making the connection with the right employer. You can learn more about incentives available to employers to promote the hiring of high risk applicants such as federal bonding and Work Opportunity Tax Credits (WOTC).
