Applying for new jobs can be an exciting time, especially when you think about the possibility of a new start with a new employer and if it’s something you enjoy doing.
But, if you happen to have a criminal record or face a criminal charge, you can’t help but wonder if this can hurt your chances of getting the job.
You probably have a ton of questions.
One of the most frequently asked questions regarding this matter are:
- Do all employers run background checks, and will I know if they run one on me?
- How far back do criminal background checks go?
- What do employers look for in background checks?
- Does probation or deferred adjudication show up on my background check?
