On a resume, many prospective employees present themselves as a four-year college graduate with extensive training in their designated field. Until you look closer and realize that over half of all applicants embellish, misrepresent or try and disguise prior work history. Edufacts/USBS, Inc. takes the guesswork out of the process by conducting education and previous employment verification as well as business and professional reference checks. A reference check is the key tool in uncovering the truth:
Employment: Start/end dates; salary; reasons for leaving; rehire status; responsibilities; and any relevant comments from an applicant’s immediate supervisor.
Quite simply, people can sometimes lie. A candidate wants that job and rewriting their own history seems harmless enough in the face of a paycheck. Harmless until they land that job and end up causing a company no little amount of grief because they’re incapable of performing the tasks outlined in their job description—tasks they so eloquently performed on paper. In order to keep these types of applicants away from your business, we will make every effort to interview the applicant’s supervisor to obtain firsthand information about their workplace makeup.
Education: Start/end dates; degree/s received; GPA; areas of study.
Education is a key factor when companies are seeking to create job parameters and compensation packages. Degrees, Ph.D’s and doctorates weigh heavily in their assessments. Hiring an under-qualified candidate because he/she has lied on a resume about educational pursuits should never happen. Edufacts/USBS, Inc. conducts Education Verifications and confirms diplomas; certificates awarded; attendance dates; and any auxiliary data that might be available.
Professional Reference: We conduct an extensive interview with the contact to help you learn more about your applicant with respect to their former employment.
