Hello all - I have been following elitetrader for a while now and needed some advice from the professionals on this site. My issue is that I had a problem with drinking for about 10 years and along the way have gotten a couple of DWIs starting in 2002. The issue is that I have applied for a couple of jobs with very good companies and have gotten to the stage of an offer letter. Upon recieving the offer letter, there is a question about if I have been convicted of a crime. On one of them a couple of years back, I didn't fill it out hoping that they would call so I could explain myself. I never was called or did they answer my phone calls. The other time I was totally honest just to have the offer taken back. After that, there have been two more jobs where they did a background check not to call me back. Now, I have another interview with the same question, any advice on how to handle it??? Also, let me add that I have been sober for 3 years now and really enjoy life. No feeling sorry for myself. Also, I have great experience working in the online trading industry. These experiences were before my legal troubles or the company's application never asked. Thanks for understanding! Your help is greatly appreciated.
