  1. Your ability to get a job will depend on your future employer so unfortunately there is no certainty as to getting hired. If your future lob requires a license then you should inquire with the licensing board that covers your profession to see if your conviction will hinder your ability to get a license.


  2. In addition to what my colleague has stated, you may want to apply for a Governor's pardon. You wouldn't qualify for an expungement. I've written a recent blog explaining the difference and what the pardon process entails. See the link below.
