You may be surprised to learn that more and more employers are requiring background checks of their employees, even if those workers are in consultant, temporary or part-time positions.
What are some of these jobs that, years ago, wouldn’t have required a background check? Take a gander:
- Piano and voice teachers (part-time, as needed)
- Call center workers (outbound and inbound)
- Servers and bartenders
- Dog groomers
- Plumbers and electricians
- Recycling center employees
- Computer technicians
- And more
What does this tell us? First of all, more employers are getting the picture that background checks are an important part of doing business in the 21st century. And secondly, workers need to be prepared to undergo background screening for practically any job they apply.
We’d like to hear more from you… What jobs have required you to undergo a background check? Were you surprised that you had to be screened in this manner?
