Convicted of a Felony Assault, can still get hired in corporate banking?Subscribe
I was arrested in May 2018 for assault and was convicted in March 2019 with a felony assault. I got into a physical altercation no longer than 10 seconds and the guy decides to call the cops and have me arrested and press charges. I have had 3 years analyst experience working in commercial banking up to this point and is currently working at another commercial bank for over 1.5 years now. I recently started applying to other jobs and landed an offer in corporate banking on the underwriting side (portfolio management). After signing the offer letter and prior to the background check, I've disclosed my charges to HR and included about 10 character reference letters. The charges will definitely show up on the background check. Would I still have a chance of getting hired or will the offer be rescinded?
