    Any idea how far back background checks go? I was arrested although not convicted of a DUI almost 15 years ago. I never went through the trouble to get the arrest expunged and now I'm worried it might effect future employment. Should I be concerned?

    I've heard anything from 5, 7, to 10 years back. Does anyone really know?

    Jnj did 3 years that’s it so you would be clear for hire based the information you provided, good luck.

    My medical device company shut its doors 9 months ago. Things are really rough as I still haven't landed a job. The company is no longer in existence - nobody is answering the phone on the other end. I think the 9 month employment gap is killing me. Will my future employer know if I change my end date to 2 months ago?

    I am afraid they probably will...It sort of depends who the future employer is? Is it more of a mom and pop company where there HR department consists of someone with an online certificate and thinks Olive Garden is top notch cuisine?

    Or is it a Fortune 1000 company with layers of redundancy in Inhuman Resources that have the latest and greatest (and most obtrusive) spying and background check tools at their disposal and can basically find out the last time your cat coughed up a hairball?

    I highly suspect that these days they can find out just about anything on employment dates, and skirting laws is just sort of a nod nod wink wink backroom thing...

    You could just say you've been taking care of a family member with urgent medical needs and that is why you had to leave your job...get creative...they ain't playing fair so neither should you.

    Because you have to be asked to the interview to even have the opportunity to tell them about the sick family member. I won't even get that opportunity with a 9 month gap on my resume.
