I was updating my CV the other day and I noticed that my criminal record is longer than my employment record. Do you think this will have a negative effect on my career going forward?
I often receive CVs that aren’t very impressive but then when you do a criminal record check on the individual in question, it’s apparent that they should be running their own firm. Unfortunately, whilst criminal experience demonstrates that a candidate has an enterprising nature, there’s a big difference between working for a firm and working for a ‘firm.’ If you have more experience stealing photocopiers than using them, I suggest that you seek employment in a field that is more relevant to your skill set. Investment banking might be ideal for someone of your level of morality.
Hope this helps.
