Getting to Work with a Criminal Record: New York State License Guides (2020 Expanded Edition)

From the Intro:

The LAC’s New York State License Guides explain the process for obtaining licenses in 25, high-demand occupations and professions for people who have conviction records. These guides aim to dispel the myths and misinformation that may discourage people with
convictions from pursuing employment and career pathways that are actually available to them.

There is a common misconception that a conviction record makes licensing impossible; in fact, 86 percent of people with conviction records who applied for New York State occupational licensing in 2018 were approved.1
