If you’re looking to hire a new employee, there’s a good chance that each applicant’s professional experience, education, and references will play a vital role in your decision to either contact them for an interview or toss their application to the side. Unfortunately, in today’s competitive job market, not all applicants are 100% truthful about their experience, level of education, or other resume/application claims.
For this reason taking the time to verify a prospective job candidate’s claims is always recommended. This way, you can rest assured that the employee you’re hiring has been truthful about his or her claims.
National and International Employment Verification
Prior work experience is often an important determining factor for any job applicant. However, without verifying an applicant’s claims of previous employment, how can you be sure they’re legitimate? This is where national and international employment verification can provide you with added peace of mind.
Specifically, VerifyProtect can reach out to an applicant’s listed previous employers (whether domestic or international) and verify the details, including:
- Length of employment
- Last position held
- Eligibility for re-hire
- Salary information
This is a great way to confirm the information provided on an applicant’s resume and ensure that they’re not fabricating any details about their work experience.
National and International Education Verification
In addition to past employment, you’ll also want to make sure an applicant’s claims regarding their education are also truthful and accurate. The last thing you want is to hire somebody for a position that requires a specific degree, only to find out later on that the employee never completed that level of education. Specifically, national and international education verification services from VerifyProtect will include reaching out to any university, college, trade school, or high school to inquire about:
- Attendance dates
- Degrees obtained
- Verification of transcripts
As a result, you can enjoy greater confidence in knowing you’re hiring an employee with the right amount of formal education to perform the job.
Personal and Professional Reference Verification
Believe it or not, job applicants often fabricate personal and professional references with the assumption that many employers won’t follow up with them. With VerifyProtect’s reference verification services, you can rest assured that an applicant’s listed references will be contacted not only to ensure that they’re legitimate, but to find out more about the applicant’s character, reliability, job performance, and overall work ethic.
Exit Interviews for Your Company
If an employee is leaving your company for any reason, it’s always a good idea to conduct a thorough exit interview. By doing so, you can gain valuable insights as to areas where you can improve your employees’ experience and overall business practices. As part of VerifyProtect’s verifications services, exit interviews are also offered. Specifically, this includes a phone interview to the departing employee that’s aimed towards gathering any information that may be useful to the employer going forward.
