Looking for a job with a criminal record? You are not alone.

If you've been looking for a job online, you know there are a lot of great job boards out there.

But what are the differences between them, and how can you be sure to pick the right one? Most job boards, like the very popular Indeed or Monster.com, serve nearly every type of job seeker and have job opportunities in a wide variety of industries. One of our very favorite job boards is Jooble: https://jooble.org/ They offer job opportunities nationwide for your everyday job seeker, and you're sure to find great opportunities there (plus, it's free!) 

While these popular job boards work for your average job seeker, if you have a criminal record, you know that oftentimes the jobs offered may not be available to you. Whether it is because the nature of the industry is sensitive to criminal records, or because the employer is not yet familiar with Fair Chance Hiring, it can be frustrating to apply to hundreds of jobs and not get an offer.

That's where we come in: 70 Million Jobs is the only job board that specifically serves job seekers with criminal records. We know how hard it can be to find a job post-incarceration - that's why we exist. Every employer on our website knows you have some kind of criminal record, and is willing to hire the right person for their open positions (no matter what their RAP sheet might say). We have thousands of job opportunities nationwide with criminal background-friendly employers, and we're 100% free to use. Like any other job board, you can sign up, create or upload a resume, and search by location to find jobs near you. 

Of course, we work like any other job board in that it is ultimately up to the employer as to whether you are a fit for the position...however, you can rest easy knowing that they will not deny you on the basis of your criminal record alone. We wish you the best in your job search, and we're always here to help.
