Got fired from my internshipER
So my internship (pwm) was just terminated and I guess I'm looking for a little advice. Basically what happened was this: I got arrested over the weekend for public intoxication. Spent the night in jail and saw the judge the next morning. He said If i went 30 days without getting in trouble and I did one 8 hour workday it would be dismissed and wouldnt go on my record. Even though the case wasnt closed and a verdict hadnt been given, I was apparently required by the bank i work for to immediately disclose any arrests. Never even crossed my mind. So the next day they called me into the office and said that compliance was forcing them to end my internship because I hadnt disclosed the arrest and they had found out. They have told me that the records are just going to indicate that the internship ended, rather than was terminated, which is obviously good.
Anyways, been feeling really shitty about this and cant get it off my mind. I called my boss and apologized for letting him down/thanked him for the opportunity. He was really understanding and said he would still be happy to write me a reccomendation letter if i ever needed one. Im also going to call and apologize to the person that referred me and helped me get the internship.
Anything else I should do, anything I should know, or any advice on how to handle this unfortunate fact in the future?
Also, I know I'm retarted for getting arrested... although you can all feel free to further point that out.
