The link in that sentence leads to a page which states, “Your score indicates your creditworthiness to potential lenders, banks, landlords, insurance companies, and even to some employers, for instance.”
However, the national consumer reporting agencies all state that they do not provide credit scores for employment purposes.
What change will you make?

Time Warner replaced the link with one to Fair Isaac’s page “How to Repair Your Credit and Improve Your FICO Credit Score,” but did not document the correction on the original page. POOF! It just went away.
Moneyland is a magical place.
Time is (finally) a Believer. After Moneyland got religion, it even published a new article stating, “It’s important to note that employers can’t actually see your three-digit credit score; as a result, there’s no ‘magic number’ that will make a company accept or reject an applicant.”
But we are still doomed.
