I HAVE USED CAPS INSTEAD OF UNDERLINE AND HIGHLIGHT
IN MY CLASS, FOUNDATION OF PERSONAL FINANCE, I HAVE LEARNED THAT MANY POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS MAY TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION YOUR FINANCIAL STATE WHEN CONSIDERING YOU FIR EMPLOYMENT.(TOPIC SENTENCE) This information was very useful to me because I was unaware that a potential employer could check your credit score, or take it into consideration your financial state when considering you for employment. This information could be used by a potential employer as an example of how responsible you are. A potential employer may not want to leave you responsible for the company’s finances if you are not responsible for your own finances. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON YOUR PERSONAL FINANCES NOT ONLY FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR HOUSEHOLD AND THEIR WELL BEING, BUT BECAUSE IT COULD ONE DAY AFFECT WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE CONSIDERED A RISKY EMPLOYEE TO A COMPANY OR WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE CONSIDERED FOR EMPLOYMENT BY A COMPANY ALTOGETHER.(CLINCHER)
