Sources show they’ll do a background check sometime during the hiring process.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Not all background checks are created equal. In fact, what they cover depends on what state you live in. For example, if you live in one of the following states, they won’t see anything from seven years ago or more:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
And, the eight states on this list don’t consider any not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
However, there are still some states that’ll see your whole record, including any cases where you were found not guilty. Be aware if your state is on this list:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
