What is a Background Check for Employment?

You may be wondering, "What is a background check for employment?" Companies use a background check for employment to make sure prospective employees have been honest on their applications. These background checks can be crucial in situations with multiple applicants, so you can pick the best candidate for your company.

Some people may bend the truth or lie on their applications to make their work experiences more impressive than they really are. It is unlikely that someone would make up previous jobs, but they might extend their dates of service or lie about responsibilities they had. If you want to make sure that the people who are applying to your company really are who they say they are, you need to have a background check run on them. By doing this, you will know the employment history, along with other information, of each applicant and you can pick the best person for the job.

Companies like DataCheck can run background checks and create reports about people who are applying for a job opening. DataCheck's reports inform you about a prospective employee's previous employment, previous arrests and convictions, degrees earned, and social security number verification. This information will help you when choosing a new employee for your company.

DataCheck can run background checks for address history, criminal history, credit reports, education history verification, employment history verification, and much more.

More Information About Background Screening

" Do not hesitate to work with DataCheck. It is a wonderful company that delivers better and faster results than our previous provider, a very large, well known background screening company, who we left after many years! JFSA began working with DataCheck about a year ago and we never looked back. The website to place orders is very user friendly and the results arrive within 24 hours in most cases. In addition, DataCheck has excellent customer service and personal touch. They are always available to answer questions as needed. We are located on the east coast and DataCheck is on the west coast, and I was somewhat concerned in the beginning about being in a different time zone, but the time difference has never presented a problem to us. DataCheck met and exceeded all our expectations!"
