It's hard to answer your question without more information. What crimes were you convicted of? Crimes of violence? When did they occur? Any chance the two misdemeanor arose from the same incident or closely related conduct within a 3 month period? If they are all nonviolent and the two misdemeanor arose out of the same incident or closely related conduct, you may be eligible to have your records sealed. The legislature has greatly expanded the eligible class of offender.
If you're serious about pursuing a law abiding life of office work (a good choice by the way), the first step is to sit down with a lawyer to see what may be possible to clean up your record.

You can try to obtain any position you want. There may be some restrictions in the public sector. And certainly there will be many businesses who will not want to hire someone with 3 criminal convictions. But you can try: the worst that will happen is they say no. Some white collar jobs also require licensing (such as certain financial sector jobs) which will be difficult to clear with your record.
You should look into the jobs tat interest you and determine from there whether you qualify. Good luck.
