Hiring Determined By FICO Score?

If a company uses a FICO score to decide whether or not to hire someone, then you probably don’t want to work for them.

QUESTION: Dave asks if FICO score determines whether or not you get a job.

ANSWER: Unless an employer is hiring you to borrow money, the FICO score is a bad gauge of a potential employee’s quality.  If the company uses that to decide whether or not to hire someone, then you probably don’t want to work for them.
