Does Facebook do background checks?
We don’t know if they’ll do a background check. Keep in mind that most companies do some sort of check, even if it’s to verify you’re legally allowed to work for their company.
Here’s what you need to know about background checks:
Background checks vary from state-to-state. For example, the states in this list only go back seven years:
- New Hampshire*
- New York*
(* sometimes certain pay or salary bracket positions require one.)
These eight states won’t look at any not guilty verdicts:
- Indiana (limited check)
- New York
There are still some states that’ll see your whole record. Be aware if you live in one of these states:
- Indiana (extensive check)
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
