I'm sorry. Worrying about your child is like worrying about yourself--and then some.

Has she tried to get the record expunged? Consult a lawyer, not sure which kind is appropriate. Maybe an employment lawyer or criminal lawyer who deals with juveniles if it was a criminal matter. Are there employment agencies that specialize in workers with problems in their past?

The best bet for employment is probably through a personal contact. A contact high enough in a small company (that might have less formal procedures for hiring) and close enough to seriously vouch for her. She may be able to bypass a background check, depending on the business.

If immediate cash is important, there are jobs where background may be less relevant...waitress? clerk in a small shop? used car sales? utility/cable/phone company sales?

If there's time before the financial crunch hits, perhaps get training in an allied health profession.

I hope this ends well.
