In South Carolina, there are many businesses and organizations that hire felons. But if you have been finding it hard to secure a job, it is because you have been applying for the wrong roles.

So, all things being equal, if you apply for the exact positions you find here, you are more likely to get hired. Take note of the ones that are related to your past crimes, and do not apply for such roles.
