I currently have my associates degree in Criminal Justice and I'm working towards my bachelor, I'm in the state of GA. I received this charge in 2006. I've been told I could still apply to jobs because most only do a 7 year background check. I've seen a lot of people on here saying just give up you will never get a job, but that's not me. I was young with the wrong crowd and got into trouble I will do anything I can and go to 50000 interviews and explain myself.
That answer will vary from industry to industry and from employer to employer. Doubtless there are lots of employers who would either not check back that far, or who would offer you a job even with that on your record. I do encourage you to be upfront about the conviction if there is a related question on the application. You might also want to consult with an attorney in the area where you received the conviction to see if it can be expunged from your record. Good luck to you.
You can apply for any job you want to. We can't possibly know how that will turn out for each job. This is not a legal issue.
