MIP + Job application


I'm going through the application process with several companies for a chemical engineering summer internship. Some of the applications only ask about felonies/violent crimes. However, many ask "Have you been convicted of any crime other than a minor traffic violation?". I've been charged with a minor in possession of alcohol back in December. In your opinion how much will this hurt me when the chemical companies see this on my application?

i think that the world is stupid how does an mip or dui hold you back for the rest of your life. I understand murder and dui manslaughter should but stupid stuff you do as a kid in college should not.

Go talk to the DA to see if they will get it off your record

I definitely didn't plan on lying. I've heard that it will be removed from my record once I turn 21, however. Is there any way to check your record that employers will be able to see?

I got an MIP when I was 20 and have never put it on any type of application. In reality, NOBODY cares about these.

An MIP would not affect my hiring decision, actually might make me like the applicant more...

There was a policy at my old company that the applicant had to disclose everything on the application. Even if it was from 20 yearr prior and they had forgotten about it and didn't disclose it, we wouldn't hire them.

You're dead wrong. My employees are required to travel, and our insurance carrier would drop us instantly if they found out I was hiring people with dui's to rent cars all over the country. I run an MVR check on every single one of them.

They are asking if you have ever been convicted of one. You were CHARGED with a MIP, and I'm sure you did some sort of program which gets the charges DISMISSED. You don't need to say anything. I've been in the same situation and talked to my lawyer about it.

Just tell them you killed a homeless guy and ate him. That way the MIP will look minor in comparison
