What do I Need to Worry About for My Pre-Employment Background Check?

shutterstock_bad job interview (640x462)So after months of job-searching, resume tweaking, and first-round interviews, you have finally found the perfect job. Now you are just a few steps away from obtaining your dream job, but there’s just one thing standing in your way: the Pre-Employment Background Check.

During this process, a prospective employer will be analyzing many aspects of your past. The scope of a background check may include your driving record, academic history, credit history, and most importantly; your criminal record.

Are you ready for your potential boss to start looking through your background? Are you prepared for a pre-employment background check? If you have criminal offenses on your record or you’re not sure what might show up, it may be worthwhile to run a criminal background on yourself before subjecting yourself to an employer.

In the state of North Carolina, charges on your record do not “drop off” even if the charge is dismissed. Any charge that you get will remain on your record until it is expunged. Expungement is a process through which record of a criminal offense is destroyed or removed.

If you’d like to see if you qualify for an expungement of your criminal charges, The Law Offices of Wiley Nickel can help you. Call (919) 585-1486 for a free consultation on your eligibility for an expungement in the state of North Carolina.
