Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do regsrding the results when it comes to this job.  However, getting this straightened out as quickly as possible will improve your chances for getting a job in the future.  Please read the articles on this site so you can learn about negotiating a 'pay for delete' agreement with the collection agencies and get these collections off your credit report ASAP.  Teaching how credit works is the focus of Credit Karma, and they do an excellent job.  My credit score is excellent because of what I've learned here.
