You were arrested. Your life might feel like it is over. You might ask yourself, "How am I ever going to find a job now?" In the United States, 96 percent of employers will screen their candidates with some form of background check software according to ESR.
Can I Hide My Criminal Background From My Employer?
The question I get a lot from clients is "Will this be on my record forever?" While this is not an easy question to answer, what I can tell you is that if you were successful in your case being that your case may have been dismissed or a withhold of adjudication, there may be opportunities to seal and expunge your record. If your case is sealed and expunged, it is possible to have your arrest removed off your record for good and it would not show up on future employment background checks. Having a clean background eliminates the possibility for an employer to question your work ethic or ability.
