It is not uncommon for hiring managers to mistakenly hire a job candidate based on a resume, references, and job history. Some potential candidates look so great on paper that many hiring managers do not take it a step further by using a background screening. If you do not want to make a costly mistake by hiring someone who could turn your workplace upside down, it is essential for you to conduct background screening on any potential job candidate. Then, they can base hiring decisions on the results.
The Myths and Misconceptions
