Question #72
Posted Friday October 19
Q) How should I handle a felony?

A) First, make sure it’s on your record and will show up in a background check.  States handle felony records differently and the information an employer may inquire about may also differ. Learn what you have to disclose to an employer but don’t disclose more than you have to.  Briefly, tell the employer what you’ve learned and that it is behind you.  Discrepancies between your application and reality can cause problems.

There’s no need to discuss issues that didn’t result in conviction or anything that has been expunged.
