I need help please

Well, I might as well tell it all.

Novartis Pharmaceuticals interviewed 12 people for one single position in the finance department starting at 30 dollars an hour. I was very excited when they told me that I was the "ONE" person chosen from all the interviewees. Needless to say, I got a phone call today after I have filled out all my paper work saying that they will not hire me due to my criminal record. Yes, I have a simple assault and a restraining order from my ex-girlfriend on the record. How the hell can they do this after I went through three interviews etc. I'm a little bummed out because for the last month I put in 100% of my energy into getting this internship. If they pay 30 bucks an hour as an intern I could only imagine how much I would have been getting paid after I graduated college. (I'm not as dumb as I make myself out to be on these forums)

Anyway, now lets get to the part about my criminal record. Last year my girlfriend and I broke up (well she dumped me after 4-5 years) so we were driving.... I was doing about 120mph in my Audi TT so she tried to grab the steering wheel because she was scared. I pushed her face (not punched or hit), I just pushed her face to get the hell of the steering wheel. She jumped out on the parkway when I was paying the toll so the state troopers came. I told them the same story as I am telling you here and they charged me with a simple assault and the girl got a restraining order against me. Yeah, I learned my lesson but now it is fucking me up.

Any suggestions during interviews and such? I am one of these people that gets offers from every single interview that I go on. For example, I have two other companies to fall back on since Novartis has declined me the position. I just sent out the e-mails but I am sure they will run a background check on me as well. What the heck do I do?

Suggestions?

Thanks

Almost forgot. Let's not turn this into a thread where all you guys are calling me names. I'm pretty bummed out today after they called me and let me know that I was not getting the job because of my record. I feel like I have been working on my high GPA for nothing. I have a 3.9+ with a double major (finance and economics).

Spend every last dime trying to get that expunged from your record. It can be done and if you are seeking employment in the fascist world of finance it will haunt you forever. You could always drive a truck.

$30 an hour for an internship sounds like BS,much like most of your posts anyways. Contact the Klan,they may need someone to manage the books.
