More prospective employers are doing credit checks on job applicants. Many employers believe if someone can’t manage their bills, they probably won’t be well organized on the job either.
You may feel that this is an unfair practice, however that fact remains that many employers will pass you over if you have a poor credit history.
Its tough enough to get hired in this difficult job market. It’s hard to stay on top of your bills if you’re between jobs, but try your best to stay current to keep your credit clean.
