I am interviewing for a few positions in IT and am facing the real possibility that I will have to obtain a Public Trust for most of these positions. The problem is that my history is not so great. In the summer of 2012 I was charged with possession of cannabis in South Korea while working there. I left the country six months later and broke my probation so that I could return home.
I noticed that for a Public Trust you only have to list any incidences that occurred within the last seven years. It is really close to being exactly seven years. So, my questions are:
- Should I wait until the exact date of when I was charged seven years ago so that I can safely and legally omit this information?
- Should I list it no matter what?
- If I received an amazing offer before the seven years time frame has concluded, should I go ahead and put this on my record (is that really a terrible thing to have on your permanent record)?
- Again, if I received an offer I cannot refuse, what are the chances that I would still obtain a Public Trust with this kind of background?
Any and all information would be extremely helpful. Thank you.
