We know how difficult it can be to hire the right person for a job opening. More than half of resumes and applications contain some information that is not true. It is essential to verify every piece of information that is listed on a job applicant’s resume. When you verify the information, you will ensure that the applicant meets the basic requirements for the open position.
It is important that you verify the educational background of an applicant. Indeed, that applicant could have lied about their educational background on the resume. Further, this could mean they may not have the skills needed to perform the daily tasks. Education verification will verify if the applicant has the educational experience, licenses, and certifications.
What an Education Background Check Includes
Education verification will confirm the following information:
- Type of degree
- Attendance dates
- Graduation date
Your business should always take the steps to verify the education of each job applicant because it will help protect your workplace from making a costly mistake. Education can be one of the major building blocks of a person’s success in the workplace, and taking the time to do an education background search will help you determine if the applicant is being truthful about the educational background.
With many job applicants not afraid to include false information on their resume and job application, it will be a risky move to not confirm a job applicant’s educational background.
