Thinking about getting a credit card? Buying a new car? Renting an apartment or a house? Buying a home? Or even changing jobs? It’s amazing exactly how much of our lives can be affected by our credit score.
While most of us know that our credit scores can keep up from getting credit, did you know your credit score could actually keep you from getting that new job?
