Graduates Facing Emploment Credit Checks
For those students looking for graduate jobs in the financial sector, it is now a regular occurrence for credit checks to be performed on the applicant!
These students now not only have to await the results of an interview, but also have to wait for the results of a credit check, with other industries likely to follow suit.
It seems logical, however, that if a student is applying for a job in the financial sector, that employers would look at credit ratings given that the two tend to go hand in hand.
What this does mean for students is that they need to ensure that their finances are well managed and that they do not fall behind in making payments as, ultimately, this could hurt their chances of employment.
