Having a felony removed from your record

At age 18 I was charged with possession of a weapon I was Innocent but the DA offered one year probation and no felony charge if I pleaded guilty so I did for fear of 10 year prison sentence they said I was facing. I didn't have a lawyer and the PD said to take it. I didn't understand the ramifications and now have been turn down or released from several jobs because of the felony record. Would like to know how if possible to remove the felony from my permenant record. I served the 1 year probation and have been a model citizen since (now age 25). Would like a starting point, please advise/help. Thank-you
