I saw a post from a Google search on this site from an IT guy whose felony was ages ago having trouble getting a good job. Well he got a good job it sounds like, but then the company's client (a bank) doesn't like him. Well I've got a new problem. My felony is still pretty fresh.

How did that guy get experience and references to get where he is today? How do you get a decent job when you just got a felony??

Please don't make light of my question, folks. I'm not trying to be a whiny baby, which I hate. I just need to know if there are any secrets or tricks I need to know about. Because the whole 100% honest thing doesn't seem to be working for me.

Thank you for taking the time to respond, in advance.
