There are a couple of different ways to do background checks. You can hire a company to do them for you, like mybackgroundcheck.com, or attempt to do it yourself. If you’re going to do a background check yourself, you can visit every town’s courthouse that you’ve ever lived or worked for the past seven to 10 years.
That’s usually about how long records are kept that are reportable in the employment arena. Once you contact them, follow the procedures, and you can pull your criminal records and see everything that a potential employer would see.
