Question by  Sudhakar (11)

Will having misdemeanors keep me from getting government jobs?

I had 2 misdemeanors many years ago.

Having misdemeanors on your record will probably not prevent you from getting government jobs. As long as they were minor the government will probably overlook it.

I have 2 on my record and was denied a job with a fortune 500 company straight out of college. It all depends on how long the misdemeanors have been on your record. Explaining yourself does not even help the situation.  add a comment

If you get expunged should not matter It does depend on job though, and the Initial time Charge. If was in last 36 months Most states will show standard background

It will probably depend on the position. Most will be more concerned wih felonies, but be honest on applications and with the interviewer if asked about the misdemeanors.
