In Canada it depends.
If it is your first offence, you can possible be sent through Adult Diversion. You will pay restitution, apologize, do some community service and the charges will be dropped. it will not show up on a criminal record check.
You may also receive a Conditional Disharge as a sentence. This is usually a sentence of probation for one year. If you complete the term without getting into further trouble, the charge will be discharged, meaning it will not show on your record.
If you are found guilty without either of these, you can apply to have the record expunged (I believe it is seven years).
A minor non-violent summary offence (which this is) will most likely not affect travel, but you never know.
As for jobs, it will depend if they do a criminal record check when hiring. If they do, it will be their discretion.
The purpose of your record is to show what you've done in the past.........it will not magically disappear.
You CAN have it expunged, but that will take plenty of time and a lawyer. It will be a while (years more than likely) before that is even a possibility.
Having something like that on your record obviously negatively impacts your chances of getting certain jobs....as it should.
Next time, think of the consequences of your actions.
