Buying a home is a major commitment. It’s a bit like, well, getting married: you’ve got to be ready and you have to find the “right one.” Like a marriage, homeownership is a dynamic experience that requires a tremendous amount of care and attention.
If you are looking for a job, you probably have a long list of what needs to be done: Search job boards and the wanted ads. Update your resume and references. Buy interview clothes. Review your credit report? The last task is an often overlooked step in the job search process. However, for many employers, credit reports play an important role in hiring decisions, and having a strong credit report can increase your chances of landing a job.
