    It will not appear for most jobs unless it is for law enforcement, military, federal, state, city employee, or if they require you to disclose YO convictions on the application form.

    Hit and run (leaving the scene of an accident) If youthful offender status was given by the court the record should be sealed and open only to certain law enforcement persons and the courts. It is not available to the general public. If you were adjudged as a youthful offender you have not been convicted of a felony for a misdemeanor only adjudged to be a youthful offender. Job applications do not ask for this information normally.

    If you successfully completed the matter then your record is sealed and you do not have to report anything about it. It should not hurt you.

    Attitude and education are what gets jobs, NOT lack of criminal record. So, I have no idea if you can get a job.

    With the Youthful offender finding by the court, the conviction is vacated and dismissed and so the criminal records become confidential. So, no your future employers cannot see the information about your youthful offender status.
