DUI and the Loss of Job Opportunities

Being convicted of DUI can significantly hinder a person's career prospects. Many fields that require some component of public work may be much more difficult to break into with a DUI on one's record. While some of these problems can be lessened with an expunction, this process can take years in some cases.

Job Prospects and DUI Convictions

Careers involving a great deal of public responsibility and trust often have higher standards with regard to being charged with a DUI. However, any job may be terminated because of one or multiple DUI charges. These convictions can also make it increasingly difficult for a person to find a new job. The following career paths may be almost entirely unavailable to those who have a DUI conviction:

  • Police officer
  • Military service member
  • Doctor
  • Firefighter

Depending on the standards of that particular department or hospital, these careers may become virtually closed off after a single DUI. Many employers will not even consider an applicant after multiple convictions or felony DUI.
