I had just been called to the table to speak with someone from human resources at the hiring event. It was a long table and there were people on both sides of me. Since I was only inches away from these folks, I could hear their conversations as well. My human resources representative excused himself to get a drink of water and what I heard next to me sounded very positive. The lady interviewing for the position was told that she was extremely qualified and her interview was going well. The company rep obviously liked what she was hearing from this lady. She had her fill out paperwork to officially apply for the position. When the applicant got to the section about credit she stopped and told the company rep that she had some credit problems due to her long period of unemployment.
