Potential employers definitely look at the experience and education you list in your resume to decide whether to interview you for their trucking dispatcher jobs. But the cost of hiring and training a new employee involves a lot of time and money. So employers want to look beyond your application to see if you’re a good fit. Many look at your credit report because they assume how you handle money shows you handle a job.
You can get a jump on this examination by ordering the report for yourself. The government says you’re entitled to one free copy per year from each of the major credit agencies: Experian, Equifax, and Transunion. You can order your report through AnnualCreditReport.com If you get each agency’s report every four months, you can constantly monitor what they say about you. Order this report as far in advance of sending out your resume as possible – from three to six months before is ideal. This allows you to plan your job hunt based on what you find.
First, make sure all the details of your financial history are correct. Look at the names and addresses of creditors, how much you owe them, and your payment history. If you find any mistakes, get them corrected by calling the creditor and the reporting credit agency immediately. By law, they must investigate your request and hopefully, change or delete the problem item.
Warning signs for employers include reports of late payments, bankruptcies, or foreclosures. Potential interviewers assume that if you had issues handling money, an important aspect or your life, you’ll have the same problems dealing with the job. Unfortunately, you can’t do anything about this information except to wait for them to drop off your report after about seven years. You can develop good explanations for why they exist when interviewers ask you about them.
