Why Employee Education Verification is Necessary

No employer wants to believe that their applicants may be lying on their resumes, but sadly, studies show that over 27% of resumes contain inaccurate information concerning the employee’s educational background. The simple solution to this growing problem is education verification through AIR Pre-Hire. It’s absolutely critical to know the truth about your applicants before you hire them, or else you risk hiring someone completely unqualified for the position.

Education Verification FAQ

If your company is new to education verification, you may have some questions about what is involved and what it can tell you. At AIR Pre-Hire, we take a look at your applicant’s resume and contact the educational institute for the listed highest degree earned. We can verify everything from dates of attendance to courses of study, graduation status, degree type, and any academic honors or achievements they may have been awarded. In doing this, we also document the name, title, and telephone number of the verifying party. This process brings up any discrepancies or false information on the applicant’s resume. Obviously, if they are lying about for example, having a Master’s degree, education verification can quickly figure that out.

Why Does My Company Need Education Verification?

No matter what job you’re hiring for, if you select an applicant based on false pretenses, you put the success of your company on the line. An unqualified employee can cause all sorts of issues from not being able to perform their job properly – and if they’ve lied about their educational background, then what else are they lying about? AIR Pre-Hire does not only offer education verification, but also past employment verification, criminal records search, identity verification, and many other services vital to the continued efficacy of your company.
