A must-read guide for students and recent graduates about the background investigation process for college, business, and government job applications. Most young adults know little about background checks, despite their widespread use by schools and potential employers. In Your History, Your Future: An Insider's Guide to Background Investigations, Anthony Oatis uses his decades of experience as a special investigator to direct readers through the process. He explains what to expect during the background check, how to prepare for interviews, and how to handle past infractions. Special focus is given to social media and the internet, helping readers understand the impact of what they post online and detailing how to clean up social media pages before the background investigation process begins. Featured throughout the book are personal stories from young adults who overcame obstacles in their lives and infractions on their records to still pass the background investigation and lead successful lives. Including tips for filling out the often-intimidating forms, Your History, Your Future is a valuable resource for high school and college students as they prepare for what's to come.
