Why is Employment Verification Necessary?

Last week, we talked about the importance of education verification before hiring a new employee. Well, what about employment verification? Employment verification is another important pre-hire step provided by AIR Pre-Hire that can be extremely beneficial to employers. We learned last week that 27% of resumes contain inaccuracies regarding the applicant’s schooling – well, 30% of resumes contain outright lies about the applicant’s work history. Eliminate the risk of hiring an employee who just isn’t qualified for the position – consider employment verification through AIR Pre-Hire.

How Does Employment Verification Work?

AIR Pre-Hire contacts the applicant’s previous and current employers after obtaining their permission in order to verify the statements made on their resume and/or application. Upon getting in touch with the employers, any comments the employer is at liberty to provide, including dates of employment, starting and ending titles, salary, reason for termination, and rehire eligibility are verified. AIR Pre-Hire assembles a report that highlights any discrepancies that arose during the process and passes that on to your company.

Why Employment Verification is Necessary

It’s always better to be safe than sorry. Today’s job market is becoming increasingly competitive, and with that, job applicants are becoming increasingly likely to “stretch the truth” on their resumes in order to land a new position. Regardless of how legitimate the applicant may seem in his or her interview, the fact is that you just don’t know the truth about their previous employment until you uncover it with employment verification services. As an example, your applicant may tell you that they willingly left their previous job, where you may find out through employment verification that they were fired or asked to resign. Perhaps even worse, your applicant may claim to have ten years of experience on their resume, but upon getting in touch with the employer, you find that they were actually only employed there for one year.

Employment verification is a justified expense for any company regardless of your size or industry . It is critical to your success as a business, as it helps you to collect information that assists you in finding the best possible applicant to fill your open position.
