Background Check

I am going to the local enforcement agency tomorrow to get fingerprinted and to request a background check. I am getting these because for an American to work overseas I need to have an FBI Identification Record Request (aka Criminal Record History). This is to assure potential employers that I am not a felon or a convicted criminal working for them. Oy, I hope this is not a painful process.

This is good to have because employers will need to have this record to give me a work permit. Well, let's hope that I can find a teaching job in VN...*fingers crossed*. This will be a complete career change for me. And after tomorrow, I will be one step closer to my goal of living and teaching in Vietnam.
