Have you already applied for several jobs and they don’t say yes yet? Do you know that you are good at what you do and do not understand what is happening? Surprise! Your credit history may be the reason, and this is a factor that can play against you when looking for a new job. Know more!
A filter that more and more companies apply
At the time of applying for a job there are many filters that a person goes through before arriving at the interview. In large companies, one of these is the verification of negative reports in Good Finance.
And it seems that companies do not want delinquent or unpaid debts on their return. So, as you can see, if you were not accepted in a job for which you were the ideal candidate, it may be for this reason.
Is exclusion regulated by bad credit reports regulated by law?
The truth is that there is no law prohibiting the hiring of people with bad payment behavior. In fact, seen in a certain way, it can be considered discrimination not to hire someone for not being able to pay their debts since, sometimes, this problem occurs due to factors that escape from the hands and not due to the lack of will of each person.
Not all companies will exclude you for this reason.
Although different companies have begun to take a negative credit history as a disadvantage for new hires, not all of them do. In fact, it depends a lot on the sector and its hiring policies.
In any case, I recommend that, for the welfare of your personal finances , avoid delays in the payment of your debts. If for some reason you could not pay on time, regularize your situation as soon as possible, approach the bank in search of a solution. Finally, it speaks very badly about you that you owe someone and that you don’t have the willingness to want to pay. Would you hire a person who doesn’t pay their debts? Me neither!
