I am moving to the Shreveport, Bossier City area to go to school @ LSUS, I am needing to find work within the next month or so, so I can go ahead and get moved down and get use to the area before school starts. I am a year of experience in a daycare and call center, also now I am an Executive Assistant at the local Housing Authority. The small problem is that I have a misdemeanor on my record and I am doing probation for it. My resume is good and my skills are great, but that one thing keeps me from getting jobs, I have applied at US Support and didnt get approved. So is there anywhere that I can get a job at?

I can't speak from experience, so the only advice I can give you is to be up front about it. Employers don't like to hire someone and later on find out that there was a past issue. They can dismiss you later for not telling them.

Perhaps there is a career/job counselor at LSUS that can give you advice.

Check with the restaurants and bars they seem to be more tolerant with their hiring practices. I am not sure what you are in trouble for but still that would be your best bet. I know because I previously owned a restaurant and bar and knew everybody in that industry in that town (not Shreveport) and we were always swaping employees and they just about all had problems. But if it comes to having to handle any money some crimes are not forgiven.
