    Where does he comes your friend ? Is he american or german ? 'Cos he seems don't have any family-relatives and friends living in US... From Germany where you live is really complicated (and maybe impossible) to find a job for someone overseas, even because he will be released in 18 months and all depend what job he did before his incarceration and what are his real plans for future after his release... I think in US are some organizations help and assist ex-felons to return to the workforce... just check on internet, you'll find something...

    Does his prison have a pre-release program that assists with finding a job? Has he spoken to his case manager about his plans and asked for help? Although he may be trained as a welder and may be very good at it, he may have to accept that when he is released from prison he has to take any job he can find that will take a felon, even if that job is at McDonald's and doesn't involve welding. It's a useful life lesson that you can't always have what you want and some things require a bit more effort and hard work to achieve.

    Also it will make a difference if he is being released on parole or if he has totally killed his number. If he will be on parole, he may be limited to his county of conviction.

    Kansas Workforce Commission will be your best bet. Does he have prior experience as a welder, certification? Or just interested?

    He is more than likely going to need to take classes to get his certification.

    Look on indeed.com thats a great site. I do know that companies here in the USA that will hire felons are Lowes Hardwae, FedEX, and Whole Foods those are not welding tho.
