James is on his way back from work. He can certainly feel today’s work stress. He isn’t listening to the radio this time around. He’s listening to a podcast he loves the most. He had always been of the opinion that it’s calming and listened often.

Landing A Job Despite Having Bad Credit

Oh yes – a poor credit rating can affect your chances of securing a job. Just ask the one in ten people who told a Demos survey that’s why they didn’t get a job. And, if you think they are over exaggerating, another study found that nearly 50% of employers conducted a credit check.
