How much is my credit rating going to affect my employment prospects?
I don't know what it is exactly, but since I have been trying to no avail to find a job for the past 2 months since graduating from college, I have racked up a lot of credit card debt and they are pretty much almost maxed out. I'm sure my credit score is suffering because of my high loan-to-value ratios, but how badly will that affect people hiring me?

Not at all unless you are trying to get a high security job or something dealing with large amounts of cash where they will run a credit check to see if you have any problems. 99% of people hired, never have a credit check run to to the job.
