Previous employment verification can provide you with key information about an applicant’s work history, productivity, and overall work ethic. Former employers are valuable sources when compiling a complete profile on your applicant. Some candidates may be less than truthful about their employment history. Internal research shows this to be the number one discrepancy on resumes and job applications. Our background specialists verify information on your applicant’s resume. An Employment Verification can differentiate honest mistakes from truly egregious attempts to further one’s career through blatantly inflated claims of salary and responsibility or even attempts to cover up significant gaps in employment which should otherwise be explained.
When hiring an individual, companies base salary packages and positions on the individual’s education. Failing to verify important information can result in appointing unqualified people to positions they don’t deserve, which in turn affects your company’s ability to compete. Education is the most commonly falsified information provided on an application. NAS will provide confirmation of the applicant’s graduation, degree earned, major and minor courses of study, graduation date and institution attended. NAS also validates that the institution is an established and accredited school system.
INTERNATIONAL EMPLOYMENT AND EDUCATION VERIFICATIONS
NAS provides employment and education verifications in over 200 countries. We provide support for obtaining records on individuals in the US who have lived abroad, as well as best practices for companies who have offices around the world. The type and scope of information available in each country vary greatly due to many unique factors that exist abroad. Contact our offices for information and pricing pertaining to specific countries.
PROFESSIONAL LICENSE AND CERTIFICATIONS
In organizations where specialized licenses are required, NAS can assist in verifying that an applicant not only possesses the license but that the license is in good standing. All license and certification verifications are conducted with the appropriate regulatory body. NAS and current status of the claimed license is reported. Disciplinary action, if present, is reported. NAS professional license and certification verification is performed on a wide variety of state-issued professional licenses for nurses, doctors, lawyers, pharmacists, insurance agents, and many others.
Professional references help organizations gain an additional level of information on their applicant, beyond what is listed on their resume that can provide them greater insight to a person’s work ethic and abilities. Information gathered consists of but is not limited to character traits, reliability, demeanor, personality traits, attitude, and behavior. NAS offers a standard level reference check service to help expedite the process HR professionals must complete when screening an applicant. It will include the contacting of supervisors and coworkers to gauge the applicant’s capabilities and authenticate work history. The standard check uses a traditional set of questions and/or customers can develop a custom list.
Personal references will follow the same guidelines listed under the professional reference. Instead of contacting supervisors and co-workers we will contact friends and associates in order to complete the reference.
