Don’t Let Your Past Come Back to Haunt You!
With so many people out of work, employers have a much greater number of applicants to choose from. That doesn’t appear likely to change anytime soon. Imagine finding out after submitting a number of applications that at least one potential employer rejected you because you have a criminal record.
