Personal background check, employment application, resume and work references are the major pieces in the hiring process. Upon receiving a completed application, a company's next step is to verify the information provided within. This is usually done in several steps in order to ensure the information is accurate.

Thorough Research

A complete background check will verify employment experience, education, credit check and in some cases a criminal history. Depending on the type of company or job being applied for additional checks may be required. A personal background check usually involves contacting prior employers and work references as well as obtaining a recent credit report to protect against fraud or theft.

Conducting a Personal Background Check

While it is possible for a potential employer to verify an applicant's background it will take a lot of time and effort. Instead of looking for other candidates, human resource professionals may find themselves continuously on the phone trying to confirm the information. In most situations it makes sense to contract with an outside company to perform the background check.

Outside companies can conduct a background check in much less time and in a more efficient manner than an employer because they have additional resources and tools that allow those companies greater access to public records. There are hundreds of companies that provide background checks exclusively so finding the right company may be difficult. A potential client should be sure to find a company that suits their needs and can handle the many, or few, requests needed during the hiring process.
