If I have a DUI will it prevent me from getting a Federal Job


If I have a DUI will it prevent me from getting a Federal Job?

A DUI is often counted as a misdemeanor on your record. If you have a felony, that is when it gets a little more complicated to get a job. However, having a DUI on your record should not prevent you from getting a job with the US Government. The best thing you can do is be honest on your application about everything. If you have a DUI or any other discretion on your record, you should disclose it upfront on your application. Even if it is something small that you think will go unnoticed could be the very thing that gets you terminated once the agency finds out that you lied on your application.
