Employment and Education Verification

Employment and Education
Background Checks

Leverage InCheck’s streamlined process to confirm your candidates have the skills, abilities, and experience necessary to perform the job.

Why is Employment and Education Verification Important?

Unfortunately, not all applications and resumes are 100% accurate. Candidates may embellish their experience, and some may outright lie.

Falsified or misrepresented information is an immediate red flag on a candidate’s character. And certain positions require a specific education, degree, or experience profile. That's why verifying employment and education history is essential to your screening process. By ensuring that you are hiring qualified candidates with the work history and schooling necessary to fulfill your job requirements, you set your new hires up for success and reduce the risk of negligent hiring claims that can tarnish your business and reputation.
