Hi, my name is Jon. I'm currently a student at a community college pursuing an Associate of Applied Science/ Computer Science and Networking, So to get to the point I havent always been the best person. I have a past that includes some misdeameanor theft charges. These were the result of an addiction to mood and mind altering substances. I am now 3 years into sobriety from all substances. Im getting my life on track and so now I find it extremely hard to find good employment anywhere but a restaurant. I currently have an opportunity with SAIC and I.m just tired of this background haunting me everywhere I go. I dont care to be honest about my life. But I am posting here to maybe find some help with this. What should I tell an employer? Anyway thanks.
