Many people have experienced bankruptcy, but gradually bounced back. Approach your employer with professionalism, confidence and a smile. A positive and determined person goes a long way in convincing an interviewer, in spite of a blemished credit report.

Chapter 7 and chapter 13 bankruptcies remain on a consumer's credit report for as long as 10 years. It blemishes your financial records and you may face real obstacles when you search for a job after bankruptcy. It is better to inform your employers about any discrepancies in your credit report, before they discover them. They may understand your situation, and give you a chance. So, be honest when you go for a job interview after filing bankruptcy.
