In Response To: FBI Background Check (JTB)

No, there's no point in getting one yet.

First off many countries/schools won't need a background check. If they do, however, they'll contact you and tell you and you can get it then.

Second, there are usually "expiry" dates on criminal records checks. This means that even if you get one tomorrow you might find that you'll be offered a job at the end of summer and you'll need to get a more up to date one then.

I would recommend getting them as and when asked for.
