Re: Criminal record
If you don't have personal connections with someone at the school, or there is not another candidate, it just is not going to happen, mistakes can stay with you forever.
So can social media- a photo with to "partying" or you making a political statement stays with you too.
Mistakes can speak to a persons character, and decision making.
So depending what the offence was (drug related, a violent act...anything involving a minor) you may need to try another field.
Is it hard to get a band teacher job with a record? What about lesser crimes and misdemeanors? What if it was years in the past? And you have a outstanding resume.
