Pureh@te the other thing that should be looked at is how valuable the person's skill set is for a particular company/agency. One of my coworkers had a domestic violence charge (which was a misdemeanor) against him and because of that he lost his ability to carry a weapon, since he fell under the Lautenberg amendment. Thus in turn he also lost his TS clearance!
But then the guy turned around and got the same job as before with another company, Only difference was that with the new job he did not need to carry a firearm.
And the pay is crap lol (unless you work in customer services where they literally throw money at them because they won ONE award ffs)
I have quiet an extensive criminal record PH and theres no way I`d land a job within goverment (uk), however have you heard of expungement? First time offenders can have their criminal record sealed, if they meet the criteria. This said If you are the top of your field and your skills are needed, they will hire you regardless of your record take for example Frank Abagnale Jr
Sometimes I try to fit a 16-character string into an 8–byte space, on purpose.
