The Importance of Employment and Education Verification

While some job applicants may seem absolutely perfect “on paper,” in reality, they may be grossly underqualified for the position. Sadly, in today’s highly competitive market, stretching the truth on resumes, etc. is an all too common (and highly unethical) problem. Everyone knows that employment experience and education plays an extremely important role in the hiring process, but how can you know for sure if the information you have been provided by a prospective employee is accurate or a misrepresentation of the facts?

Reliable Employment Verification Services

Verifying employment and education claims through VerifyProtect ensures accuracy and helps you make an informed and good hiring decision. Knowing that your new employee has the necessary knowledge, skills, credentials, and experience to carry out their role within your company or organization not only streamlines the hiring process, but it can also offer protection against liability claims and other risks.

It is important to note that there are over 20 million immigrants working or looking for work in the US, which adds another unique wrinkle to the hiring process. Rest assured, we can provide employment and education verification reports from institutions outside of the country, as well.

National and International Employment Verification

National and international employment verification can give you added peace of mind. After all, without verifying previous employment, how can you be certain that your applicant did not fabricate or embellish their work experience? 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 rehire
  • Salary information

National and International Education Verification

In addition to past employment, you will also want to make sure an applicant’s claims regarding their education are 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. National and international education verification services from VerifyProtect 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 are hiring an employee with the right amount of formal education to perform the job. In addition, VerifyProtect can assist with personal and professional reference verification and exit interviews for your company.

Taking the time to verify a prospective job candidate’s employment and education history is always recommended. This way, you can know for certain that the employee you are hiring is right for the position and has been truthful about his or her claims.
