Anyone have a DUI prior to applying for a job at big4? Curious how the firms view one on a background check, particularly one that’s old (almost 10 years).

Yes, we have a guy in our group that has one on his record. Didn’t hold him back once he got in the door. Key is to disclose it - probably should call the recruiter or somebody you interviewed with so that they aren’t surprised when it shows up. As long as you demonstrate that it’s a one time thing and you are much more responsible now (sounds like you are if it’s so old), it shouldn’t impact you too much. If they are on the fence about you to begin with, it will probably cost you an offer but there isn’t really a way around that.

Yes, but my criminal record was expunged. The license suspension appears on my driving record and clearly states DUI, but I was never asked about it

To add: this is also important for the future too. The guy I mentioned was on some jobs with annual international travel and because of his record couldn’t get a visa to go. If he hadn’t disclosed and they found out after asking him to travel, he would have been fired on the spot. Since he had already disclosed, the team was able to work around it.

Expunge is a must do . In nj..you can do it 2 years after conviction

I honestly don’t think it will be a big deal if it’s only one and you disclose. You don’t need to tell anyone but the recruiter.

Didn't disclose .. has never shown up. Is over 7 yrs old.

I had DWI in college (10+ years ago), didn’t disclose and have never had problems with getting visas required for international travel.

I wonder where you go that you need visas...

India. Malaysia. South Africa. Dublin.

Are you in advisory? Can you refer me

So a company I interviewed with took me to the final round but rejected me for an architect role. Then, two months later the hiring manager hits me up for a manager role he thought I would be a good fit before the job was posted. We had a call and he said he thought I would be a long shot replying back to him. Also, he said everyone liked me and no need to interview. He said he has to post it and let HR do their thing before he can make a final decision. Why post a job if you want me for it?

Hi Fishes, I got a call from a TCS manager last week and he interviewed me saying he received my CV from an external source. He shared his tcs email id, asked me to make minor modifications in the CV and then there will be a client interview. He said he will get back to me. I reached out to him 2 days later and he informed they were evaluating my eligibility with TCS. It has been 4 days since that and I have not heard from them. What does this actually mean? TIA.

I’m at a huge standstill in my career. Looking for any advice or tips ! I graduated Dec 2017 with a finance degree.

I had some interviews but no call backs. Don’t know if I should go back to school or what to even do at this point. Had my resume redone as well and interview coaching.

I gave interview for Technical Manager in Wipro. JD was leaning heavily on architect side. The interview was boring, and the main focus was on team building.

Can anyone help me understand, or share similar experience with Wipro if they had.
