Yes anything is possible
It depends upon the job you are applying for. You will be eliminated from certain positions but certainly not most. The jobs you will most likely have trouble with are jobs involving public trust such as law enforcement. Other things to consider are the type of misdemeanor you were convicted of. If the conviction was a domestic violence charge or firearms related charge, you may have more problems finding employment.
I would say this is a fair and accurate statement even if the charges are more than ten years old and even if you are in court trying to get them expunged!
seems people just don’t want to give people a shot to get back in life!
I would say I am being negative if this were not the case for people I know!
