Hello. welcome to HCM.
alcohol can damage liver, and complete repair may take months to years. This form of liver damage is represented by elevated SGPT and SGOT levels. Though per se these elevations are not a reason for you to not join, it will be best to test yourself for entire liver profile including viral markers and thus decide accordingly. Many times these tests will also be done for new employees both in India and abroad.
Take care
