Former Color Me Badd heartthrob, Bryan Abrams, ditched the hoop earring and shoulder pads for an appearance at an Oklahoma job fair ... but not to sing -- dude was looking for work as a corrections officer.

Color Me Badd Singer

Bryan Abrams, a recovering alcoholic, told our source he finally turned his life around and now he's pounding pavement for a new gig -- and we're told he's hoping to land a job keeping inmates in line at a local correctional facility.

Which is good ... because if his hit song "I Wanna Sex You Up" is any indication, the guy probably has a lot of experience with handcuffs.
