Hello, I have looked all over and really couldn't find anything useful to answer my question.
I have a TO from the DoDEA to teach in Japan. The whole process is going to take a while. I am nervous about resigning my current position without the background check being complete. What type of findings would preclude me from receiving a firm offer? I have a couple of concerns, one being bad credit. I don't have good credit and will not until I find a good job. I am unable to make ends meet on my current salary, and I went from self-employed to teaching. Really, I need to just file bankruptcy. I have judgments, collections, charge offs, tax liens are all paid if I have any. I am unable to even attempt to resolve any bad debt due to my current income is only covering living expenses. Is my credit going to keep me from passing the background check to teach? Lastly, prior to teaching, I was self-employed, I have only been teaching now for 4 years. Other than tax returns I really have no way of verifying my self-employment, will this prevent me from being hired as well? I have not record otherwise legally.
