  1. You have nothing when job offer contingent upon a successful background check. Yet their are cases when a company terminates people on the first day of class for unsuccessful back ground check. How is that possible? How can someone be terminated when background was not completely done? I thought one does not have the job yet until successful pass because job was contingent upon FULL background check?
    Is that even legal?
    Please explain

  2. This was useful. I just graduated college and I’m looking for my first full time job. A lot of the positions I have found are online but go through employment agents. So far no luck but today I got my first “conditional job offer” from my agent. Hopefully they have something? If not, luckily I have an interview already scheduled with another company the next day. Thank you!
