FTC Reminds Job Seekers: Get Your Free Credit Report Before You Apply for a Job

The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, reminds job seekers that they can get a free copy of their credit report at annualcreditreport.com or 1-877-322-8228, so that they can fix any mistakes they find, or explain information that might not look good to an employer.
