I hope this is a relevant question. I'm a senior in college and have recently accepted a full-time offer to be an IT Business Analyst at a company that's opening up a new office in the area.
However, there's a possibility I may be fired from my current part-time job. Right now I'm driving buses for my school, and the other day I got in a minor accident in a parking lot (minor damage to a parked vehicle, virtually no damage to the bus). I let my superiors know about it as soon as it happened, and while the university police came to file a report I did not get a ticket. I've talked to my supervisor and right now nobody's sure what might happen, but I could be fired for this.
This would put me in an awkward situation. My full-time position is due to begin in June of next year (a month after I graduate), and the background verification process won't start until closer to that date.
My question is: if I do get fired from this part-time college job, is there a possibility it will affect my full-time offer? I plan on letting the company know if it does happen, just to make sure there are no discrepancies with my application (which says that I'm still employed at the part-time job, which I was when I applied).
I feel like I might be over-thinking this, but I just want to be sure I didn't mess up my future over something as irrelevant as a fender-bender.
