What is Employment Verification?
Some candidates may bend the truth when describing their past work experience and level of responsibility. Research shows this to be the number one discrepancy on resumes and job applications among employees and potential hires.
Our experienced verifiers confirm information on your applicant’s resume. Dates of employment, starting and ending positions and salaries, reasons for termination, and eligibility for re-hire are examples of the information employers are asked to verify about employees or potential hires. An employment verification service helps to differentiate honest mistakes from blatant misrepresentations and outright lies. We uncover these attempts to further one’s career through blatantly inflated claims of salary and responsibility, or even attempts to cover up significant gaps in employment that should otherwise be explained.
- Turnaround time: typically 24 to 72 hours (average is 33 hours)
