I have a previous drug charge which I am sealing. Can I still get a good corporate job?
Back in 2006 I was charged with a possession charge which I am not to proud of. I later successfully completed all necessary requirements and now qualify for the option to seal my record. My question is can I still graduate from college and get a good corporate job? I am currently studying to become an administrator in business. Do you know of any personal stories or people with good jobs that have sealed records?
You are in a better position than most convicted felons looking for jobs. Once your case is sealed, it will only be visible to law enforcement agencies, the court system and government agencies.
I know of many felons who have put their criminal records behind them and gone on to successful corporate careers. Many companies hire ex-offenders and felons. One suggestion I have for you is, whenever possible, apply for jobs using you resume and a well written cover letter. Often when felons apply this way, the question of criminal records do not come up. If it does come up, talk about the mistakes of your youth and how hard you have worked to overcome that mistake.
