I live in Oklahoma, I have a felony, do you know who will hire me?

I just got out of prison in march, I am on parole until sept 08. I have a good resume to my previous conviction. I have administration and customer service experience, but sadly I am having a hard time finding work do to my felony. I am becoming frustrated, and min wage will not cover my fines and living costs. Can anyone help me? Is there anyoneone who has advise or has gone through this and is now successful in life?
