I have a interview tommorrow and have been having issues getting a job because of a some what lengthly background (criminal cases). Basically I have 7 misdemeanors and one felony. The felony is 6 years old and was for credit card abuse. I was convicted on the technicality of the law where it states: "Possession with intent to abuse/use". Not one cent was stolen, only the card.
I had a interview a few weeks ago now for a entry networking position and the background check came up and I did some what struggle with explaining my situation. On a scale of one(low) to ten(high) I'd say I struggled on a level of 7. I think I didn't get the jobs for a couple reasons, one being what I told them about my past. Another being my past itself and last but not least, the fact that they do work at an international airport, that being Philadelphia International.
I haven't been in any trouble since March 2011 and have since gotten my A+ certification , which was earlier this year, and am about to test on the 31st for my CCNA. I'm hoping I could get some good advice on how to proceed in my interview based on ya'lls personal experience, knowledge, ect.
