GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

People with criminal convictions, parolees, and people on probation can attend a job fair and learn how to get their criminal record expunged on Thursday in Greenville.

The SC Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services and Sen. Karl Allen will host the seventh annual Second Chance Job Fair and Expungement/Pardon Workshop starting at 10 a.m. at the West End Community Center.

The community center is located at 404 Vardry Street.

More than 40 employers in construction, landscaping, manufacturing and food services will be at the job fair. Attendees should be prepared for on-the-spot interviews.

The SCDPPP and officials from the solicitor’s office will also advise attendees on how to obtain a pardon or an expungement of their criminal records and improve their job-seeking chances, according to a news release.

Allen said it is important for South Carolina to help give people a second chance to contribute in a positive manner to the economy.

“We must help the least of these and remember but for the grace of God go us,” Allen stated in a news release.

Probationers, parolees and ex-offenders or any individual with criminal challenges in their background are encouraged to attend but the SCDPPP said anyone looking for a job will be welcome.
