The Federal Trade Commission (America’s federal consumer protection agency) Reminds Job Seekers: Get Your Free Credit Report Before You Apply for a Job

Before you apply for a job, you should know what’s in your credit report.

Employers may look at your credit history if they’re considering hiring you. The FTC, the nation’s consumer protection agency, has encouraged job seekers to get a free copy of their credit report at annualcreditreport.com or 1-877-322-8228, so that they can fix any mistakes they find in their credit report, or have an explanation ready regarding information that might not look good to a prospective employer.
