Is the employment history declared by the candidate true and factual?
One’s past work experience may be a key factor in the selections process. Industry statistics show that approximately one-third of all resumes are falsified with many candidates embellishing aspects of their employment history in a bid to gain a position. Common embellishments are titles, responsibilities and tenure. Additionally, candidates may extend their time in positions to hide a job they may have been dismissed from or a period of unemployment.
IMS National WebCheck will contact the Human Resource or Payroll department of former employers to verify the dates of employment, positions held, and details of any promotions, reason for leaving and the name of the previous line manager. Any variance in information gathered compared to what the candidate has declared will be alerted to you. Employment History verifications provide exact, accurate and un-biased information to employers.
