How Does Bankruptcy Effect Your Job Search?

Does a previous Bankruptcy effect your ability to find employment?

You might be surprised to discover that it is actually much more counterproductive to your job search to have negative items effecting your credit, such as repossessions, foreclosures, charged off accounts, etc., than a bankruptcy discharge.  The likely reason that prospective employers prefer bankruptcy to credit that hasn’t been “taken care of” is that it shows that you are making an attempt to clean up your credit rather than just letting it go.

There are of course instances where this may not be the case, such as employment in a financial institution, but for the most part prospective employers would much rather have an employee who resolves their problems rather than allowing them to get worse.
