    Answered . Was the DUI in Nevada? If so, it is likely accessed when a check is run under your social security number. In this dayand age, we need to assume that a background check will turn it up. Disclose the conviction ahead of time. It will save you both ebarrassment and the possiblity of being fired if they find out you didn't disclose it.
