Can bad credit keep you from being an accountant?
I have a friend who is getting their house foreclosed on, and obviously her credit will be in the toilet. I’ve heard poor credit can keep you from getting certain jobs. She is going to school to be an accountant. Will she even be able to have such a job with terrible credit? Can people who hire you as an accountant have access to your credit history? Who would want to hire a person when it looks like they can’t handle their own finances? What I am basically wondering is if it is even worth her continuing in school for this, or if it would be best to go in another direction.
