I went to interview got hired by manager and received offer before I did background and everything else but then got message saying they gave job to someone else. How can they do that?

They probably gave it to a family member or friend. Sometimes it not what you know it's who you know.

What to say to an employer looking for validation of a degree being held by school?

Now my account is on hold as well as my degree until I pay the school. I can’t even get into my email from the school, but I can still access the schools website and login. How would I explain this problem to an employer looking for validation if I can’t…

First time Felon looking for a job

I have a recent aggravated assault on my background. I get plenty of calls and I let them know up front about my background and you guest it, they are no longer interested. I have a good resume and lot's of experience in banking customer service and collections. I am looking for an office type job with a company that does not do background checks or would be able to overlook the aggravated assault.
All help is appreciated,
David Adair

I went for an interview that went really well .They call me back I got the job.They sent all the paper work to fill out background check and drug screen passed them all. Then I called them to find out my start date they told me that they are not giving me the job??????????

I don't understand this either TIm Dubois - there has to be some sort of protection against this. Contact your local labor board…
