Job offer has been rescinded after the hiring mangers found out about a DWAI ("Driving While Ability Impaired") from 4 years ago which has come to light following going through DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) background check and on-boarding requirements with HR.
Manager says that they have to back of the offer because I was not completely transparent and upfront with him about it first during our interview and previous meetings. Hiring personnel also said they have to back any from entire offer.
I was still going to try to set up a meeting with the President to talk and possibly explain but I honestly didn't even bring it up as it was an oversight and after thought. I am trying to still save the job opportunity and hopefully the president will reconsider me.
Driving every day is a must as it is a sales job. I even just was let go from a position where I had a company issued vehicle along with company insurance. For this new company if I'm still considered I was going to have to drive my own vehicle and supply my own insurance so I didn't even thing to bring it up.
What words can I say or what actions can I say or do to save this job opportunity? I know I have asked God to forgive me and he has shown me forgiveness for my mistakes. How do you get a potential employer to forgive or to reconsider?
The crazy part is I have been honest, open, and transparent with every other employer, unfortunately I did't mention it to this company. I by no means didn't mean to omit it or neglect bringing it up. I have nothing to hide I just unfortunately forgot to bring it up sooner.
What do I do and say to save this opportunity? Any help is greatly appreciated.
