How damaging is a BK when applying for a job?
I realize every industry is different and every employer has different guidelines for hiring, but in general, how much does a BK impact on a background check or how "hard" does a BK hit your employability?

Depends on the job.

For most jobs, it's not going to be a problem.  BUT for jobs that require handling a lot of money such as bank teller, it might prevent your getting a job.  Why?  If you had to file bankruptcy, it might indicate poor financial management skills and there could be the fear that you might be tempted to embezzle some funds to meet your needs/wants.
