YOUR CREDIT SCORE AFFECTS YOUR
As you seek to recover from job loss, you may also face the loss of your previously excellent credit score. You need to request a free copy of the report and understand our credit score. In today’s world, background checks and drug tests on prospective employees have become routine in most industries. Most job seekers understand that a background investigation will include criminal and employment history. Unfortunately, many do not realize that the majority of all background checks also include your credit score. Consent is required for release of this information. Ask if the consent to a background check includes a credit report. When consent is given for a background check, be sure you know in advance what to expect. Every American is entitled to an annual free credit check. Be sure you request this report. This will provide the opportunity to resolve any errors on your credit report. If there is any legitimate negative information on the report, you can attempt to resolve the problem or, at the very least, be prepared for tough questions from a prospective employer.
A low credit rating can affect your chances of a job offer. This is especially true if the open position includes any financial responsibility. If your job search includes a recruiter, be sure you keep the recruiter informed of any negative information that may be revealed. This will enable the recruiter to counsel you on whether the situation should be discussed with a prospective employer. The recruiter may be able to discuss the situation with the employer and pave the way for an interview and ultimate job offer. Many employers are willing to hire candidates with financial problems and credit flaws are not an automatic “no”.
AN IMPORTANT JOB INTERVIEW QUESTION
Why did you leave your last job? It is extremely important that you provide honest accurate answers and the answers need to conform to your resume. If you were part of a major layoff when the company closed, the answer should be simple. If there was a company merger or the company downsized, mention this and move on. These situations are common in today’s world but many times we engage in the blame game. In reality, it just is what it is and there is no blame to be assigned. You need to let go of the anger and resentment. Otherwise, your answer to this simple question can kill your opportunity for a new job. Until you deal with any negative feelings about the job loss, it will impact your answer. You can provide a terrific response with all the right words and a great smile, but your attitude and body language can overshadow and out shout the words and smile. If you were terminated, provide a brief an honest answer. Comment on the valuable lesson learned and how you benefited from the negative experience and move on. No matter what happened at your former job, never ever make a negative comment about the company, your supervisor or co-workers. Rehearsal for the interview with an honest trusted associate should eliminate the possibility that any negativity on your part will seep into the interview.
