The key is how the question is asked. If they ask of you have ever been arrested you will have to answer yes but when it asks what the disposition was it is non criminal. It is most likely if you lie they would never find out because of what was explained by my colleague. The charge is as serious as a simple traffic ticket not a crime but a violation.

Disorderly conduct is a violation amd not a crime. Non fingerprintable offense means that you weren't fingerprinted and you do t have a rap sheet as a result of the incident. This means no criminal record. Don't sweat it, it really won affect employment.
You did not plead to a crime so you don't have a criminal record and the records themselves will seal after the one year conditional discharge period is up. Once sealed, nothing should show up on a background search except for a jobs in law enforcement, which are exempt from the sealing statute.
