Can I Get A Job Without A Background Check? | CAREEREALISM

We asked our career experts to give their thoughts on handling this situation from one of our readers:

“I was recently convicted of a Misdemeanor B. I am having a very hard time finding a new work. I am a Jewish guy, recently went to Culinary School, and I am trying to turn my life around.
